Spinning was at F’s today. Fascinatingly, I appear to have been to the Frozen Norf. It’s only about 6Km to Crudy, but it seems to have its own microclimate and I was astounded to find myself in a Winter Wonderland when I approached. It was all green and sunny when I left home!
I wasn’t at all organised when I went out and ended up going out without a coat (madness) although I had hat and scarf and, for some strange reason, my reading glasses on. I just wasn’t with it. I packed my wheel and some batts but forgot to take any bobbins. Luckily I had my knitting with me so I just knitted once my bobbin was full. It seemed a shame to disturb the sleeping Bengal in my box of batts anyway – he looked so peaceful and content. I wish that I had the camera with me. F has two Bengals – the other one did the usual cat thing of finding the only member of the company who is allergic to cats and then sat on her. I’m not sure which of us had Bruce and who had Gimpy, but they are both lovely cats. Blue-eyed Snow Spotted. Very unlike my three:
Lulu, the Bengal X killing machine
Teddy, the Brown Marbled Bengal (F3) somnambulist
(Teddy again, because he is so handsome!)
and our melanistic Bengal, Treacle…
… who does have a better side 🙂
(though it’s really difficult to capture.) He’s just plain funny.
Sorry about the gratuitous cat photo posts 🙂
I am still spinning the home-dyed Shetland X – it make take me some time to get to the end of it, but I shall. I may get there all the faster now that I have the Jumbo Flyer.
Very pleased when I got home to find the power back on – it went off at 9:30 for some scheduled maintenance.
And now that I have wasted more than enough time – I must decide: knit some Butternut scarf or knit some mitts, or go in search of the Danish and begin work on my new flyer. What would you do?
