Back to it

It's been so nice having some time off: eleven days, and a half if you count the leaving early because I felt sick on the last Friday. In some ways I'm happy to be returning to work, I have been a little bit stressed about some stuff that happened just before I started this holiday, but it has been glorious to have the luxury of time, as well as sun shiny warmish weather. As well and the knitting, spinning and crocheting I have told you about I have hung out with knitting and spinning friends, and spent time with my family and my non crafting friends. I have played frisbee in the park and read a book and talked to the cats. Leon and I went to the movies today, something we haven't done all year. I have slept quite an unreasonable amount. I think that's what I'm dreading about tomorrow morning; not the being at work, but the getting up to the BEEP BEEP BEEP and going out into the cold. So I'm off to get ready for work tomorrow, all the while looking at my wheel, on which I have half finished some plying, thinking I had better go to bed, rather than stay up and finish it, tempting though that is.

Moving on UP

So, last week Leon and I bought a house! Well, actually a perfectly sized flat. The thing about our perfectly sized flat is that it’s a bit smaller than our current rather home – where we live now is a giant flat built in the 1960s. We’ve got loads of space, a  dining room,  a garage and a storage room. Unfortunately, not too much maintenance has been done on the place in the last three decades. The place we’ve bought is lovely – 15 years old, with a new kitchen, views to forever and nothing is falling apart. But it’s got a carspot, and room for a dining table in the living room. So, I’ve had a look at my stuff and I’m getting rid of things like a crazy lady! Also, it turns out I’d rather get rid of everything than move it. I'm destashing as if we are moving into the carspot, rather than the flat! All our CDs –GONE. All the DVDs –given away, books - bye bye...

It’s been really interesting, especially in relation to my crafting things. I’ve got quite a lot of spinning fibre, and I’m…

Yarnalong - the one with the end of a chapter

Last week Ginny announced that, after 6 years, she was finishing the yarnalong. . I’ve been participating since  December 2013 ; over three years. It’s bittersweet – doing the Yarnalong has given me a good structure to my blogging and I’ve loved reading about what Ginny, and all the other members of the yarnalong get up to every week. But this is a time of change for me – some very exciting things have happened, which I can’t share here quite yet. It’s a time for letting go, and for new beginnings. So I leave you with one last photo of my kindle and my knitting, and I say “thank you” to Ginny, and everyone else who have brightened my Wednesdays for the last 6 years.

Look what I found!!

I was putting away the yarn from my mothers ASJ, which I have finished - it's having a bath right now, and I found this blue yarn:

Now, I'm pretty sure that the yarn I left at book club a month ago was Patonyle in navy, and that's what this is too! Either way, it is an exact match:

That's the old yarn and the one I just found, together, and they are the exact same colour!

There is only 13 grams, so I don't know if it will be enough to finish both sleeves, and the  iCord front, but if it is I won't have to wait another month to declare this project done!
