Last year at SAFF I remember seeing little baskets that hang on your spinning wheel to hold little tools or gadgets like a diz or oil. I didn't get one at the time because I didn't have a wheel. But now that I do, I'm forever looking for little things like that while I'm spinning.
I like the idea of the little basket - but a basket might not be exactly what I want. So, I decided to try and make a small felted bag that would hang on my wheel and hold the little things that seem to go missing. It will be a little more colorful than a basket and I can make it to my exact desired size.
I've got my first prototype knitted up and it is standing by waiting to be felted. If this turns out, I"ll be sending this off to my spinning swap pal and I'll make another one for myself. I'll also write up the pattern if the whole thing works out; otherwise it is back to the drawing board for another try.
I'm still keeping up with my Tour de Fleece spinning - a little every day. I should actually have some finished yarn to show off by Friday.
