This week has been very light on crafting, as I have been tackling the non-craft related items in our study/craft room.
Did I mention last week I did no calculations before starting my version of the Litmus cowl? At the moment I am continuing to knit 13 rows of colour and 8 rows of grey. I have done 13 stripes of colour and 12 of grey so I need to weigh the remaining grey yarn and come up with a plan. Maybe tiny grey stripes between the other colours or maybe no grey stripe.
In a few places it seems I have knit through the back loop by mistake, I guess it’s such mindless knitting going round and round that my brain subconsciously fancied a little detour! It is addictive so my socks have been neglected.
The wind was so cold this week I wished I had already made a pair of thrummed mittens that are on my YOP list and with the cold winds forecast this week I may do those this week.
I watched some of the spinning and fibre preparation courses on Craftsy this week and learned a lot of things I didn’t know. I’m hoping my spinning will improve and my finished yarns will look better when knit.
Going through my husband’s old tech and random stuff he’s kept in the study wardrobe has really exhausted me this week. He had a beer making kit 3 years out of date we had to negotiate going. I know he finds it really very difficult to let anything go so I’m pleased with how he has finally let some long term electronic items go he wouldn’t 5 years ago when I last decluttered.
I found a charity who will refurbish an old laptop to give to someone who needs one and managed to get some money for an old iPad and phone. My husband has promised later today we can go through all his cables…of which there are hundreds. I bought some tape for my labelling machine so I can label plugs and I am really hoping we can get rid of 50% at least. Wish us luck!
