Oh dear. It appears that I have been horribly remiss in the last few months but I have the excuse of life and work being pretty full-on and stressful.Â But the summer is here and I am looking at my knitting and deciding what to cast on next.Â I have a couple of projects on the go at the moment but one of those is a tank-top in alpaca which is more suited to an autumn knit – very hot and fluffy!
Yesterday Mel and myself went along to the first of two spinning sessions organised by Alice from Socktopus. DIane Mulholland is the tutor and I would recommend taking one of her classes as she is a really good and encouraging teacher. Diane had us all spinning away happily by the end and I am very much looking forward to the next lesson.Â Just what I need, another hobby! In classes dorky style I shall endeavour to photograph my first spun yarn and subject you to it. It feels amazing to take a hank of roving and turn it into a length of yarn. It’s like magic!
