Cherry-almond spinning

Spinning day today, at P’s. The cake was cherry and almond. I like spinning at P’s. I have discovered that, if I sit on her sofa, it’s very comfortable for my bad arm and it doesn’t aggravate it, even if I spin all morning – so the BFL is progressing. Painful slow progress, to be sure. But I am halfway through it now, more or less, and looking forward to the knitting of it when it is done.

I made arrangements to do some rainbow dyeing with M, as she missed the session that we did before – though we didn’t actually fix a date when we might do it, we do have to to look forward to.

Next week’s spinning is at one of the island’s accommodation providers. We are going to talk about course provision, and eat chocolate cake.

It’s good, this spinning lark, is it not?

Although we haven’t used the shower we had… Continue reading Van Nessa : Her Leak
