The last couple of weeks have flown by and have been so busy! We had Ollie’s parents and elder brother over for two weeks and then Ollie’s younger brother for a week in the middle, with his girlfriend.
It was manic. There was family to visit and places to see and things to do and bits to buy… phew.
I think I’ve just about managed to catch up on household chores now and to get back into the swing of spinning and knitting.
Fibre: BFL/Silk from Fyberspates
Type: 2 ply Laceweight (24 wpi)
This was my first time spinning silk and it was really quite slippery. It took a lot of concentration and a firm grip, but it was a wonderful spin and I’m so pleased with the results.
Fibre: Wool/Mohair/Silk Blended Batt from Wildcraft
Type: 2 ply Laceweight (22 wpi)
This was a lovely spin! And I love the way that the colours have worked up. I like the fact that I was able to keep the stripes. Woohoo! 😀
There has been progress on both the Summer Sampler and the Beaded Ribbing Socks (which I know I haven’t blogged about). As for the other projects, yes well, I’m ignoring those at the moment. I’ll come back to them… maybe..
I’ve also joined up for the Ravelympics to make the Laminaria Shawl and also the Cut & Paste Socks… I don’t think I can finish both in the 17 days… but here’s to hoping! 🙂
Better get back to the claiming my house back.. Hope you’re all having a wonderful week. 🙂
