Wednesday spinning

I managed to fit some spinning in this morning before going out, without my wheel, to spinning group. Not enough, though.

I made some progress on my sock at spinning group today. We had wonderful cake (an iced ring). I came home with a bag full of nostepinnes, some fresh eggs, and three balls of merino DK wool. It was a wonder that I managed to fit it all in my bike basket! We also had the good news that our nostepinne-maker is willing and able to produce some bobbins for us – they will be both cheaper and better quality than the Ashford ones, so that is very good news indeed. I am hoping that we can get him onto drop spindles soon, and maybe a few bespoke niddy noddies 🙂

This sock is very slow work. I keep measuring it in the hope that I am ready to turn the heel but it never seems to be quite long enough. I’d like to play with it this afternoon but I really must spin, like a thing possessed, if I am to free up bobbins for Friday’s course. I also have to photograph the nostepinnes. Perhaps I will photograph the sock while I have the camera out.

Right – where’s that wheel?

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

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
