........ to me. Fortysix today (and feeling a tad older due to aching limbs from yesterday!)
However I've swapped my Friday off for a Thursday off and so am having a leisurely day of R&R.
The last post I put up proved to be somewhat less than helpful, my links weren't working which I have now corrected thanks to Annie pointing out where I had gone wrong (thanks Annie).
I also rather foolishly made the link from the Online Guild to their Yahoo group rather than their website. This led to a spot of confusion as you can't access the Yahoo group until you've joined the guild and Annie (again) got a less than helpful email pointing this out. I've amended the link now so it takes you to the Online Guild's site with details of subscriptions etc. (Sorry Annie).
I also failed to mention that Europa Wools do mail order so you don't have to visit them in person, you can ring or email them.
I finished my spinning on Sunday evening and am quite plesed with the result. I carded the white cheviot that I bought off ebay a while back with some multi coloured green merino from Wingham.
I then spun it into singles
and then plied it and set it in the skein. I'm happy with the result and I have about 210 yards of a double knitting weight. The colour doesn't show very well in these pictures which are a bit bleached out. The green is more pronounced in real life. Though still subtle.
I'm not sure what to use it for, it's a bit scratchy for a scarf or a hat, I'm considering felted slippers but I'm not sure if there's enough.
If in doubt I guess I could always start another blankie. LoL!
