I had Happy Post yesterday,
Ooh, it maybe a book.
It is. I found out about this whilst watching the Tales from Cuckoo Land podcast. The lovely Gayna was wearing a cardigan from it, I had to have the book, it was here in 2 days.
The back cover, a pretty cardigan with a band of "Lice Stitch " round the yoke. I think that I may continue it over the whole garment for warmth.
The Pink Cardigan before I ripped out the sleeves. I am leaving picking up stitches for the cuffs till during the week.
To help with the frogging I brewed a mug of Earl Grey, I did put a lid on it for 3 minutes. It is really delicious I may have ordered a caddy full.
My drop spindle and some fibre.
My fingers are twitching.
But there are things that need doing first.
My flowers are doing nicely.
There are 2 roses that will not survive the stem trimming that is next on the agenda.
These ones would not fit into the other vase. The Lillies have had their stamens removed, that pollen stains everything it touches.
It would also not be beneficial to the SO's asthma
I hereby 'fess up to sneaking time to play with spindle and fibre. There may be a small lumpy bumpy skein drying as I type.
I know, I should only spin for a few minutes at a time. Ha, far too much fun for that rule.
I spun 2 lots and then had a go at plying.
Next time I will weigh 2 lots of fibre and then spin them, they are destined to go on my peg loom. I will put them on in the order that I make them, as a visual record. The aim is to make a wall hanging.
Dinner today is roast chicken, I am making forcemeat balls and some will be a meal with salad, probably on Tuesday. I just mix sausage meat with breadcrumbs, fresh herbs and garlic. I may stick a chilli in there as well along with some paprika, an egg to bind it all and then wrap the balls in bacon.
My washing machine has just finished so I am off to peg out.
How do we produce so much washing?
