My husband commented my mini Havana looked too short and didn’t I have some wool upstairs to finish it or could I get some? I must admit it would be better a bit longer…hmm yarn diet!
I didn’t manage to find time this week. Next week I am definitely getting the dyes out! Definitely!
I felted 2 shades this week and this time didn’t add sheep! I thought I would try them just in case there are people who prefer them without sheep. The photos aren’t great as I was in a bit of a rush and the purple heather doesn’t show well on the photo.
I sold at least 5 shades in September and have done a big order of the equipment for some more 20cm and 25cm (my normal sizes) but have also included a couple of 35cm and 40cm ones to try some larger sizes. I have also ordered a couple of clock and sewing bin kits to try those too! Then I ordered lots of prefelt that I use as the base and some fibre to dye for more shades. What I dye will go along with the fibre I bought from a local lady who has her own sheep and dyes and cards wool fibre. So I should be all set for being a one woman lampshade factory in the run up to Christmas. That and making more fairies and ornaments!
I cast on a pair of socks on Monday evening but haven’t had much time to work on them. It’s a vanilla sock using Hermione’s Everyday Sock heel, it works so well for striped yarn. The yarn is WYS 4ply in wood pigeon and is left over from another pair of HES I made.
Lots of prep for BritSpin this week and I posted on my blog earlier this week about preparations for it. I forgot to mention that the event raises money for a charity each year, so I have updated that post and will make sure my next post includes the details. This year’s charity is the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI). So a great cause.
A very admin heavy week has meant little time for crafting, but I am hoping that most admin for the committees I am on is 99% done.
My laptop had a melt down on Saturday, much trauma ensued when an important file couldn’t be recovered. Luckily I have a desktop I can use for zoom calls though whilst my husband repairs it.
I wanted to join in the minimalist challenge during October but I think I have enough going on and things I am trying to remember. So not this month…I may do it in January instead.
Today we are going to Inverness to buy some paint to make some pumpkin Minions! Hehe!
This is a Year of Projects post. Officially the Group is in its 10th year, but this is my 3rd year participating. If you would like to find more about the Year of Projects Group on Ravelry.
