Button Button

who's got the button?

A radio interviewer was asking people what childhood games they remembered. Maybe there is still a little bit of the child in all of us.

Still knitting Still sorting.  Enjoy your day  Terry

Like Riding a Bicycle

I just realised it's been a week since I posted.  Well it has been busy  running around  for the move. Always something else, I don't remember other moves involving so much, but maybe it was handled by lawyers because we were 5hrs drive away, and in country towns. It's different in the big smoke.

What does riding a bike have to do with anything? It's never forgetting how part.

Already spun singles waiting to be plyed.  more of the brown I found before.

I haven't forgotten. Like riding a bicycle the dark brown bobbin of wool in the bottom left is in the wash as I type along with the smaller amount of mottled grey on the flyer. I plyed the two small balls from the find last time.

It's called a weavers shawl. The pattern was from the great knitting site Ravelry.

Open House again tomorrow afternoon. 

Enjoy the weekend and find time to do something you like.  Terry

Wool Washing

Improvised skeiner

wool ready for scouring

close up

red dirt  not good soil for cropping and sheep need about an acre each

all washed and ready to roll into balls. It is about 5.5 oz in all.
I'm going to knit a shawl .

I have been embracing the sorting and

NO I did not give all the treasures in those crates to the op-shop. Most of it went into space bags. You sure can store a lot more in a space bag than in a crate.

FOUND some more dark brown wool.   Spun washed ready  to add to the shawl project.

The first open house for the sale of our house is tomorrow. I'm off to scrub and dust.

Have a good weekend. Treat yourself.  Terry
