Spinning Wednesday

Spinning was with S this week. Added delights included a very nice tea bread, and Earl Grey tea, plus two carrier bags of angora fibre goodies sent to us from Orkney Angora (details of which I need to catalogue and circulate to the spinning ladies for the purposes of informing the divvying up of the spoils.)

Having received payment for some work that I did recently, I was able to place an order for a drum carder. I also ordered myself one of the new Competition Lazy Kates… plus a couple of small items. I almost ordered some tops as well, but good sense got the better of me after a brief discussion on the possibility of dealing with SABLE by knitting one’s own shroud!

My order precipitated a flurry of ordering activity from the spinning ladies. I am an bad influence enabler 🙂

Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
