At last, a skein!

I managed to get the wheel out at around 6:30pm yesterday and filled my second bobbin of BFL. I plyed and skeined it, so at long long last have a skein of BFL to my name! I have been spinning it quite fine and only getting to spin on Wednesday mornings since puppy came into my life – so it really seems to be taking a lifetime to spin these tops up. It’s worth it though, it’s a fine colour and very, very soft. My spinning/plying leaves something to be desired and the skein has a distinct bias, but I am pleased overall – it’s an achievement. There’s still plenty waiting to be spun up, though, and I doubt I’ll be knitting any Xmas presents with it for this year at least.

Do we need a picture? or shall it wait until the job is completed?

Gosh, I am feeling pleased with myself!

I think it’s time we had a picture of the wee girl who is getting in the way of my spinning.

Dusty had indeed brought some prey in and when he saw his dad, he let goContinue readingDecember Reflections 4: Red

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle
