My first commission:-)

When mum and dad were here last week my dad asked me if I would make them a trivet for the teapot. Their kitchen is done in blue and yellow, and the only suitable roving I had was a lovely bit of variegated blue/turquoise Falkland from Babylonglegs that I bought at Rav Day last year, and a tiny bit of yellow. Here it is laid out, I added some bits of silk fibre in blue under the top layer that does show through subtly.
It started off about 30cm and has shrunk down (with a bit of trimming to neaten) to about 19cm. Here is is drying in the garden in yesterday's sunshine.
And it fits!


Thanks for stopping by. Thoughts, opinions and suggestions (reading or otherwise) always most welcome.
