Kerrie and Wayne have the most beautiful and photogenic children. This is Cameron, he is such a darling and really wanted me to take his photo…who am I to say no? His eyes are just stunning! Their children are also lovely to be with…well done you two!
To say it was wet for the Yarn Forward photoshoot was rather an understatement! Still we muddled through trying not to get too upset with the scenario. Poor Kerrie was struggling with her sore ankle. I do hope it mends soon. However, I got some stunning shots including a dishy male model, and I can’t wait to show you, but not just yet….
I am making these for Barry, he is long overdue a pair of hand knit socks! I am using Haindmaiden Casbah but I can’t find the shade number anywhere….
At last I have finished my neighbourhood Tunnel socks…for some reason these socks took me ages to complete. I made myself do it though and I am quite pleased with the results
Oh and Jo and Peri got it right, I have new spinning wheel, an Ashford Traditional that I bought from a lovely blog pal DaisyJane.
We chatted from the moment we met and had coffee and cake and chatted and chatted and in fact I had to stop Barry from telling the story of his friend being stopped at customs because of a suspicious substance found on his laptop……I do hope we meet up again soon!
And of course I had to have a little play didn’t I? I used most of the sample bits of yarn that I got with my spindle recently purchased from Jenkins Woodworking
with the help of Wanda….
I love this yarn, it has all different types of wool and some silk and camel in there too…I loved spinning the camel it is the browney coloured bit. I think I am going to have alove affair with this wheel, isn’t she lovely?
Whilst most of you lot were at IKnit Day
and saying hello to the Yarn Harlot
I was busy, my sister and her husband came to stay on Saturday night, we took them to see our new house and they loved it and so did we! It is so gorgeous, Liz said I could put my spinning wheel in the conservatory, what a good idea!
Now back to work, packing and cleaning…eugh!! Less than two week to pack, I’d better get my skates on!!
