My computer has been fixed. YAY!

My computer was fixed today. It's not wheezing anymore, and it is working just fine now.

Lots have happened since the last time I blogged.

I received (hristinac's present. Here it is

I thought I'd wait to open it, but I couldn't wiat. yes, I don't have enough will power. Isn't that lovely of her? I reeived 3 sandra magazines, 2 UK Knitting magazines and a pattern book for Rowan Calmer. Chris had to put up with me last night, flipping through the books saying, "Oh I want to make that, and this.. and OH! This one this one!"

I also received my gift from Diana. She sent me some yarn (the picture didn't turn out). I was very excited to find a variety of yarn, some of which I have never used before.

Have I mentioned I am going to Canberra this weekend? I believe I have. Anyway, I am! I am going to visit a few new friends from KR. I am visiting Maisie (that's Littlemaze to all you KR folks) who has just given birth to a beautiful baby boy (I know he is beautiful because I have seen the pictures!). I made her a baby hat which I hope the baby will grow into next winter. Here it is

You can't tell from the picture that I have random yarn over holes on the hat. It ooks like a little like a 'ripped' hat. I have made it adjustable so that Maisie can lengthen the hat if she needs to as the baby grows.

I have also been practising on the spinning wheel.
Here is what the wool looked like when I first started spinning.

The flash bounced off it badly, but it really IS as uneven as it looks. I think you can see that. I went ahead and plied that with my brown yarn spun from sliver.

It doesn't look half bad, even if I do say so myself. I am planning to knit a hat from it, using large needles.

Ok, my wheel beckons...
The yarn you've spun up is great! IT's looking like a cool novelty yarn, great for a hat!! I think I need to hoard some money and buy myself a wheel..Did you start out on a drop spindle first or just straight into the wheel?
Hi Christina C here again !!!

I am so glad the literature & tape measure sheep all reached you Down Under !
I cannot apologise for the fact I never got time to knit for you !!!
Hence so much literature !!!!!

Take Care my dear Celia !
