The play's the thing

Sundays are for Spinning. I've been saying that for months and yet the wheel has been gathering more and more cobwebs, and I don't mean laceweight.

Yesterday Spidey had me over for a play date. We drank tea, ate delicious tropical muffins and spun. I finished this bobbin of Bendigo roving in the Damson colourway.

The roving was discarded by Monsqueak several months ago at a similar play date. It went on holidays to South West Rocks and came home much rested, thank you very much for asking.

Someday soon, perhaps next Sunday, this bobbin will be plied against something interesting.

Sundays are also for socks. Almost finished the first of the Stanbridge Socks watching teev with the family last night.

Stanbridge Sock at Leeton Racecourse, Sunday 30 Sept 2007

The yarn is Ornaghi Filati "Luna Park" which was part of a prize won from Yarn. I wasn't all that keen on it in the ball, but it is perfectly charming knitted up. The best thing about it, though, is that Mum hates it so is unlikely to decide they should be hers.

You plan to start spinning at the movies?;-)

I knew I'd got the colour scheme in my house right when my Mum walked through going "yuk!". She's not one for bright colours.

Love the sock - and the sock blocker. Good to see you knitting something for yourself, too.

Sounds like a perfect Sunday! The sock is turning out so well - glad you can stave your mum off :) Great job on the spinning too!

If I was your mum, I'd decide that those socks would be mine. Good thing I'm not your mum otherwise you'd probably never have any handknit socks of your own.
