This, that, and the other

Proof reading went well last night. Just a few tiny alterations to make now, then the copy can go off for external proofing. It should be away to the printers next week and we are planning a launch party in early May. Woo Hoo! First, though, we have to have the Sticky Party – and stick 2,000 CDs into 2,000 books. That should be fun. No, seriously – I think we should make it a fun event, beer and pizza and lots of glue dots…  kind of glue-til-you-drop…

Spinning this morning was at M’s, where we had chocolate-dipped strawberries and ginger cake (warm from the oven). I did spin! I managed over an hour before it became too uncomfortable, and I switched to my knitting.

We made plans for Monday, when a fellow Raveler is coming to Sanday. We shall do a knit-and-meet-the-natives, followed by a trip up the island to see William at Orkney Angora. It should be fun.

Today, my new toy arrived in the mail. A gift from my beloved…


Can you guess what it is yet? (No, not the egg) It challenged us somewhat. I got it out and then we couldn’t get it back again…

More on this, maybe tomorrow, but later certainly.

Also today – I got my Alpine Butternut and my Northern Neighbour projects washed. The cowl is about dry and I  managed to photograph it and do an FO post. The scarf is still very wet – and turned out to be far too long for my blocking table! Maybe pictures tomorrow

Got to dash – there’s a hot bath waiting for me, and going cold fast!
