Chapter 34: I make things
I've had a fantastic four day weekend. There was Bendigo on Friday. Then, on Saturday I sewed a little padded bag for my new Turkish spindle. I'm really happy with the way this came out. Like the spindle it is cute and sort of ridiculous, but well made, if I do say so myself. On Sunday I finished the bath matt I've been crotcheting, which turned out huge. And not quite square, for some reason. Still it sits flat and will keep our feet warm on our marble bathroom floor. And today I carded up 600 grams of fleece, into what will eventually become Idelwood. Carding is fun. Cleaning the carder afterwards is the challenging part of the process, particularly since I know the next things on the carder are going to be dark blue.
