The sun is shining

Spring has sprung at last and the sun has been shining for a couple of days, things are always better when the sun shines, except the colour of the windows I know and my car actually, thats tomorrows job, car wash, how exciting ;)

I received this beautiful box of batts from the lovely Faith this morning, I am leaving them in their bags for the moment as the temptation to do nothing but spin is huge but I really need to do some cleaning up before I can spin.

Faith has great photos of them though you can see them here. There is nothing on the wheel though, yeah, as I did manage to finish my singles for the SAL.
They are knitting up quite nicely into Ishbel, I decided I needed to be knitting something less complicated at the moment, comfort knitting is in order.

Laminaria got all finished up in time and sent to one of my aunts, she loved it and it did look cute on, so well worth the effort.

While in Scotland I did run away to spend a fab day in Glasgow with one of my aunts, we spent a nice time yarn shopping and had lots to drool over in K1, I was gifted some Silk Garden sock which is currently becoming these, it is just a little warm for them at the minute but they are going to be fabulous in winter, I love them :)

My Mum and cousin did the Race for Life on Sunday at Eglington Park, the sun shone and it looked a lovely day, I was dyeing some fibre and this is my Race for Life colour. With added cat of course as Pete likes to be in ALL photos ;)

The fibre you dyed is a great shade of pinks. Enjoy the batts too!

I really like the colors of your striped noro socks. It's a pity that you won't be able to use them untill next autumn!

The Noro sock is looking great!

Love the fiber you dyed. Very pretty.

I'm so glad that you are enjoying the batts I sent! :)

Socks look fab - Laminaria is just gorgeous!
Was at the race for Life too - me and my pals did some knitting as we walked round, bit muddy tho!

What a great idea with the Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn. I've made a scarf alternating colors like that--but the socks look brilliant. Thanks!
