I've been off work for most of last week with what I think is/was tonsillitis/virus type thing. Rubbish. I haven't really felt like doing anything apart from sleeping. However, looking back it does look like some knitting and spinning happened!
I finished my first Provence Knee High.
This is the size of sock you can get from 1/2 a skein of The Yarn Yard Bonny. Toe Up to use every last bit.
Very very easy knitting. Exactly what I needed.
I also started this.... my Aeolian Wedding Shawl. Only the set up chart done so far, but it is a start. I have 3 months to finish it!
For some reason I also decided to start one of the hardest socks out of the Cookie A book. This is Kristi. I've had to colour code the chart and I think I've finally made sense of the cables (with the help of the errata). I have only managed 3 rows of the chart so far, my brain can't cope at the moment!
Finally, I have found that spinning has been a very calming, low energy task perfect for those afternoons when you feel a little more awake but still can't really be bothered to concentrate.
Here is nearly a full bobbin of gorgeous dairy milk coloured merino. Not perfect, but the best yet! Now Do I spin another bobbin of this or a slightly lighter purple to ply with it?Hmmm. Decisions.
