A good but painful excuse for a whole lot of knitting


Its New Years Eve so I'll start with a quick knitting update.

The Kep cast on just before Christmas has come to an abrupt halt..... I've run out of white yarn and the reason for not spinning some more will become clear further down this post.

But I am really pleased with the progress so far and it is really, really soft. Shetland, Norfolk X, BFL X.
Next on the needles is a quick hat which I think has a mainly vintage feel about it, mixed fleece ( mainly Shetland) hand dyed etc. I'm not sure yet whether I like it or not.

I've been thinking about the New Year, do I resolve to lose weight, save more etc etc But I think really I just want to travel, maybe reduce my working hours and enjoy my spinning. Maybe 2018 will bring some changes, maybe not.

As for the no spinning, the hospital that told me that my foot was just bruised with soft tissue damage and I was ok to walk on it phoned back on Wednesday to say they have had another look at the x rays and I may want to go to the local A&E if I was still having pain from it. This is the reason for no spinning.....
I may have to break out a drop spindle or two :-)
Have a great New Year xx

Poor foot!!! Not being able to spin more yarn for that gorgeous color work must be so frustrating. Wishing you a speedy recovery for the new year.
