Tom came home with his camera, so I`ve taken the opportunity to take some pics of my ( now unwrapped ) wheel!
The wheel needs waxing but I haven`t got round to getting any yet.
I`ve also taken a photo of the extras that were sent with the wheel. They are balanced on top of the fleece that I was sent. I don`t know if its usable, how old it is or anything. I feel at the bottom of a very steep learning curve!!
I`ve looked thro the Ashford book of spinning, but I would really like to go to a workshop, to learn the basics.
Yesterday was Darlingtons In Stitches knitting group at the art centre. It was really nice to see everyone, to see what everyones latest knitting project was, have coffee, cake and lots of laughs!! It really does lift my spirits.
After the group CarrieAnne and I had a mooch around Boyes and bought some bargains, though mine weren`t of the knitting variety!! I was looking for fabric to make a 'drool blanket'!!
Being the owners of a big, beautiful, black labrador brings many rewards. The downside is the drool. Remember that film Beethoven, with the drooly dog? Well Paddy has definitely modelled himself on Beethoven! And as Ian has just got another car, whose rear seat is drool-free, I am going to attempt to make a cover, just for where Paddy rests his head when he is in the boot. Alfie, not to be left out, contributes by putting his mucky little paws in the same area!!
While shopping, I bought some black fleece, thinking it would wash and dry quickly. So all I`ve got to do now is make a cover!!? Oh-oh!
