A quick, short post. The sun is out and I've unpacked the two parcels that have been sat around since Friday. One is a light grey Shetland, very well skirted and it looks like the spine has been removed so presumably it was a bit felted.
it looks goods and should be nice and soft once spun.
The brown fleece is in pieces, but I love the colour so it will be washed very soon, again very well skirted with no rubbish that I could see.
I have noticed from my photos that I may be in need of a new camera, I will be looking a buying one in the summer.
At the same time, I dug out a bag of Ryland
On the needles is another beanie, Ryland and mule ( I was just told mule so not sure exactly what it is, presumably BFL cross by the crimp and feel)
and on the wheel is Ryland/Zwarbles, I was given this fleece and its not the best but not too bad once spun up but I suspect it may be sold rather than knitted up by myself.
On the foot front, another long chat at the hospital and it seems that I did more damage than anticipated, recovery time is now set at a year plus although I'm looking at going back to work in a month or so.
I'm making the most of the free time that I have ( as long as I don't have to stand for too long or use my foot) and becoming friends with my crutches! We are off to a big camping show soon and I've booked a mobility scooter for the day to make life a little easier :-)
Speak soon xx
