Today has been a good day.
Mum and I went to a meet-up organised by the local Stitch ‘n’ Bitch group – we popped along and knitted, chatted, swapped, and I had a go at spinning on a wheel. Ooooh, how I want a wheel! The lovely Lucy of The Bear Necessities showed me how to spin on her wheel, and I bought some divine sock yarn from her.
I also used a skein winder for the first time – how cool are they?! I love how the yarn turns into a cakey little thing ^_^ (Simple things please simple minds!)
And I turned the heel on my second sock (again)…
By all accounts, a good time was had by all!
Whilst I was checking my “crops” (I went to pick some beans and lollo rosso – we had them in our salad for dinner and they were delicious!), I spotted this beauty on the buddleia.
So overall, a good day! Tomorrow, my sister and I are going for a makeover at MAC 😀
