So today is the 2nd October that is the day after my birthday, hands up who remembered it was my birthday?
That is in the people who are supposed to remember?
Okay, there are only 4 of you and not one of my guys remembered to leave me a card, make me a card, goodness knows there are enough supplies for card making lying around, nothing, nada, zero, zilch, you guys are rubbish!
So instead of me getting cards, you, the blog readers, get to have a competition instead, this is a non 41st birthday,almost 1 year blog birthday contest, also I am interested to see how any lurkers there are.
So, at the minute sock yarn is my thing, the contest is how many pairs of socks could I knit without buying any more yarn?
Now, you could cheat and look on ravelry but I have to admit to being really slack at loading stash on there.
So leave me a comment before saturday 6th october and we will see who is closest to the winning number, the winner receives sock yarn of course.
So other than sulking abut the non-birthday event I did some spinning this weekend.
This is some merino tencel from Amy, which I did find really hard to work with but my reason behind joining Amy's fibre club was to be pushed to try new things.
I am a very beginner spinner but I am not going to keep new fibre until I am a better spinner, I will only be a better spinner if I try new and harder things. This worked out not too bad as far as I can tell. I have about 85m of 3 ply very soft, shiny yarn, in a colour that is SO not me but which taught me a lot. Perfect!
I did start my Juliet and have just started the lace part, I did just start the lace part about 4 times,
something to do with the not able to read
or count to 3..
or 4... made it all too difficult.
I think I have it now, but am sure I could have been almost finished it, if I had only stopped and read the pattern through,
1 more time!!!
