Well, that was a cold and a half. It’s mostly left my system now (cough and running nose be gone!) but given me some very odd sleeping patterns (3am to 1pm is not what I call sensible).
My time away from my blog has not been wasted. I started playing Farmville again for one!
I also finished spinning the lovely merino fibre, plied it and set the twist.
It ended up somewhere between a heavy worsted and chunky-weight. Parts are very think-n-thin and short sections are very heavily over-spun but overall I am pleased with my first 2-ply. I’m already knitting with it (hopefully you’ll see photos of that before too long).
I also made a pair of socks for my mum (my own design) in 11 days. Photos and possibly a pattern to follow if I have enough energy.
I finished another two washcloths and started a third.
I put to one side all of the skeins of sock yarn which need to be turned into cakes/cheeses of yarn and got as far as getting out my ball winder and putting one of them on my swift.
Think that’s most of it. Yup. See you soon!
