Well, I did manage to do some spinning before breakfast – inasmuch as I have not yet had any breakfast. We tend to rely on Nell to get us up these days, she’s normally better than any alarm clock but today she slept in – and so did we. I sat down to spin at 8:45 am and re-filled my bobbin of thick and thin red/orange Inferno. Later on I hope to re-fill the purple bobbin and maybe ply some more off. I confess that I have not managed the full hour yet.

Most of my day so far has been filled with collecting things together ready for tomorrow. I don’t think that I need a car, I think that I need a removal van… so I have elicited a promise from Mr L that he will help me load up in the morning. I don’t want to pack the car tonight for fear of condensation, which won’t mix happily with spinning wheels and looms and fibre etc.

Also this morning I have prepared a little fibre guessing game – with 20 16 pictures of assorted fibre sources and empty boxes to match to numbered fibre samples. What I have not yet sorted out is any form of prize.

I just thought of another game – but don’t think I have resources available to set it up – but we could have played “fastest/best nostepinde winder” if we had some measured lengths of yarn. That would have kept them quiet for ten minutes 🙂

Loads left to do – carding fleece and combing dogs, finding fleeces in the store room… but I am going to treat myself to half an hour’s knitting on my sock before cooking lunch.

I still have to reach the daily goal of one pattern repeat on the scarf as well.

It’s all go.

Feeling a bit seedy

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

Here, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

Where do all these yawning gaps come from? Aha – this time I have the answer – I have been busy updating Scattered Thoughts! After a couple of very long posts, time and energy were lacking for coming here to write and as little else had happened other than a shopping delivery or two, it seemed unimportant.Also spending far too much time at Facebook, which I am trying to give up but it keeps onContinue readingHere, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
