Sooooo today I was planning to post some pictures of some place mats that i have been making, however, my sewing machine has decided that on the last but one place mat (of eight) that it no longer wants to use the cotton that i have been using. Very frustrating! Any way so i thought i would show you a few things that i have been working on 'just for me' instead!
Secondly I have recently been teaching my self to spin using a spinning wheel. I have been trying to get to a spinning group which is held every first Thursday of the month but something has always come up or it has snowed so i had no way to get there! Anyway so there has always been something! So i brought a book called start spinning which was really helpful but i found the most helpful thing was to watch spinning tutorials on youtube. I could then use the book to simply remind me how do do certain things.
Unfortunately the toes fit Steve better than they fit me! Very sad but i think if i promise to make some more in a slightly more manly colour then he will let me keep my very first pair of socks.
Ah yes the funny story that i promised... when Martine sent us the pattern to have a look over before the knit-a-long she attached it as an image but it was upside down. I have an ipad and kept turning the ipad over to try to view the pattern and it kept flipping so it was always the wrong way. It took me a while before i gave up and printed it. Is that not a definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.
Anyways that's all form me today
Thanks for reading
