Remember the little blue baby hat? It's found a home - with Tam in Melbourne. Here's a picture of her baby wearing it
Isn't he gorgeous? Wello, the hat is pretty cute too, even if i do say so myself.
I was home yesterday as I wasn't feeling very well. I had one of those headaches that's only n one side of my head. Everything felt oh so bright and I was about to rip my head off when the paracetamol kicked in. I managed to get a fair amount of knitting done once the headache started to subside. I think, if I am lucky, I may even be able to finish the brown/black ribbed jumper in a couple of weeks.
I noticed a few days ago that what I thought was a black yarn twisted through the brown is actually blue! But there is no way I am going to frog the jumper now! I don't think it is all that noticeable, do you? I think I can live with it.. and the colours don't look that
Chris was also home esterday as he was also feeling under the weather. By about mid afternoon we were both feeling better. My headache was gone, thak you Panadol! He drove me to Virginia Farm Woolworks
, and look what I bought!
That's wool on the left and cotton on the right. Jenny was kindenough to show me how to spin the cotton. It looks difficult. I think it will be keeping me busy for a while.
The wool I spin from wool top is starting to look better
This is what the thick thin stuff looks like:
Here's a picture of the more even stuff that I spun this evening:
Here's a picture of the two plied together (on my niddy noddy):
And finally, here's what it looks like in a skein:
Not bad, huh...
