And yet another week flies by in a blur. A nice blur I may add, we did lots of trips out with mum and dad this last week, which included getting dad into the sea, and had a great time, which is nice for mum since she doesn't get to see the boys very often.
I finished Buchanan by Kate Davies and I love it. It is unblocked in the pictures so the colourwork is a little scrunchy, but it will block flat. I did make a couple of mods, but only because I thought I was going to run out of yarn - as it was I ran out of the white colour, used all the yellow and had a tiny bit of jade and grey.
So now I am working on finishing my blueberry waffle socks in the mathematical camel spit colourway. And then will cast on some smooth operator socks in the West Yorkshire spinners cocktails yarn.
I said last week that I had purchased a Bogway spinner and here it is!! Together with my first attempt - it is wonderful, lovely and easy and very relaxing. Yes, at the moment it is a bit thick and thin but I'm sure that will even out. Obviously I would love a spinning wheel, but I have neither time, money or space to keep one. A drop spindle looks lovely , but I hear needs coordination (something my rowing attempts this week will testify that I do not have!) And so this is a fabulous and cheap alternative. I say cheap, but, of course, I have now invested in some fibre that is undyed that I can spin and then dye!!
