Not Going

I am not going to Wonderwool Wales after all as I am still ill. Its day 13 of this cough and cold and I am getting fed up of it. On the plus side, I am gradually getting better, and didnt need antibiotics this time, so my immune system must be picking up. I think some retail therapy is required........................

Spinning and Socks

I've been feeling a bit ill for the past week or so, I turned to my trusty no-fail knitting and made a pair of socks for myself. The yarn is Opal Petticoat I bought years ago, and the pattern is Simple Socks by Sue Morgan. I also managed to ply my first 100g of BFL, custom dyed for me by Freyalyn. It is around sockweight and is 450 yards long. It is a bit underspun but I have had lots of good advice from my fellow spinners on ravelry, and know what to do to make it a firmer twist for the second 100g of this. I think it will be a shawl : )
