snow day


First things first, I sort of fell out with knitting the shawl. I haven't ripped it back but it is sat in a bag looking rather forlorn. I'm not sure why but I'm just not gelling with it.

So back to the spinning. I had a dig around and found a bag of Bond that I bought maybe 6 years ago? I looked on my blog but couldn't find a post about it. The fleece was imported from Australia and it goes against my objective of spinning only British breeds but its a nice colour and starting to get compacted so its out and on the table being combed.

see, pretty colour :-) I'm going to spin it up and maybe use it for something special. At least if its spun up I'll be more likely to use it and it's better than finding a big felted ball of brown fibre at some point in the future.

The snow came on Thursday, not as bad as many parts of the country and its starting to disappear a bit now as the winds are so strong that its just getting blown away into the nooks and crannies.

So, for now I will sit and spin, and bake biscuits and read magazines .

Speak soon xx
