A good Sunday

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.

Merino superwash sock yarn <3

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!

My pepper plants, which I had lost hope of ever doing anything!

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.

I think it’s a “Peacock Butterfly” – we saw some yesterday too!

So overall, a good day! Tomorrow, my sister and I are going for a makeover at MAC 😀

One thought on “A good Sunday

  1. i totally understand you. i love my spinning wheel (a kromski sonata) and my yarn winder (life wouldn’t be the same without him *lol*)
    is that purple yarn handspun? if yes, i’m envious how even and regular it is!!
