My life is full of good intentions. I have ALWAYS wanted to make one of these:
This one was worn by a Cornish folk dancer at the Smallholders' Show back in 2008. I think this was a Bal Maiden's bonnet (they worked above ground on the Cornish tin and copper mines). However, this is also the sort of thing which would have been made at home by cottagers and worn during harvest time back in Victorian times.
A variation on a theme.
Right now, time is flying by but I definitely AM going to get back to this:
There were many bags of unused fleeces at my friend's house, as I think she had given up on the spinning when she became ill. I am about to get my spinning wheel into the kitchen and listen to the Archers and get my skills back again. I have a lovely brown Alpaca fleece (SO soft) and a Leicester Long Wool too. My fingers are fairly twitching right now.
I am also baking today, making bread too, and playing catch up indoors as it's raining so I won't be gardening.
