I'm Confused!

Just for a change!!

Is it me or was it autumn last week and's summer! It doesn't take much to confuse me, so deciding what to wear is a nightmare. I either seem to wear too much and feel hot and chewed, or I wear too little and end up wet and wind blasted! Oh I suppose it's the joy of living in England!!

The knitting is still plodding along, I'm desperate to finish the hat but due to the headaches, it's very slow progress. My GP thinks its migraines, but to be on the safe side, I've got to have a MRI scan. I think I'm working my way through having every bit of my body scanned!! They'll be giving me my own chair in the waiting room if I go much more!

End of moan!

I went to the spinning group and had a lovely time. It was brill to meet up with old friends and get cracking with the wheel. At Woolfest, I bought some merino/silk tops, so I took this to have a go with. After a dodgy start and some timely tuition from Veronica, I was away. It is beautiful to spin and I'm pleased with the colour, especially as I tried to choose a different colour to what I normally choose! I fancy knitting a shawl cum scarf with it, but I haven't decided on a pattern yet.

I also intend to get cracking with Christmas card production, but my intentions don't always develop as I'd like!
Many thanks for all your comments too, they are much appreciated.

I know exactly what you mean about the weather! The Autumn Equinox arrives and brings summer with it - screwy or what?
I do hope you get your headache problem resolved, it's miserable. I know we take the same pain relief tablets and I've suffered some horrid heads with them. Just a thought.
Looking forward to seeing the results of your crafting! Take care!

Tell us about the weather up here! I'm going to wear thermals, woolies, a bikini, wellies and take a brolly, just in case!
Can't wait to see the results of your spinning.
Good luck with the MRI scan - hope whatever it is, it's something that's easily treatable.

I know what you mean about the weather, although we tend to miss out on the sun because of all the trees! Hey ho!

Just loved seeing your spinning the other day - totally fab! It's going to make a beautiful shawl.

The weather's driving me mad! I went up to Lincoln last weekend with a load of long sleeved tops - and it was absolutely sweltering all weekend!! Hope you get the headaches resolved - that sounds miserable.

Oh I hope the MRI goes OK for you and that your headaches leave you alone. Totally agree about the mad weather - never know what to wear from one day to then next and if the heating should be on or off?!
Looking forward to seeing your handspun!
