I know in my last post I said I couldn't believe where the month has gone but when my DH pointed out that it was actually May now I really was surprised! So in 8 days time my DD is 2 years old and the week after that we'll be getting our bathroom done - absolute chaos! And a party to sort out as well (and I've not even done invites yet!!!). I think I've been in my own little dream world where time and dates have no meaning... until things like Birthday Parties and builders coming pop up on the horizon! Ah well!
Well I have finally got my spinning wheel out and been doing a bit more spinning lately and Chris came over last night to have another of our 'Spin-ins' which was nice as DH has been on a late shift for the last few weeks so I've missed out on my Knitting Group which is about my only contact with the adult world without DD tagging along! I've finally spun up some of the Cotswold Curls that I dyed months ago now and it called to be spun finely and I think this will become socks - that way if it's too lary a yarn you won't really notice them hidden on my feet! LOL! The colours are great spun up (pictures to follow later) the purple and blue are really vivid and bright; the green a bit wishy washy; the yellow is actually almost Mum's Blimey Limey and the orange is more peachy so it's not quite the rainbow I had pictured but it will be fun and funky at this rate if not a bit bright!
Butterfly is knitting up quite nicely and is a quick knit - the pattern was learnt with Jaywalkers so there wasn't that awkward stage of learning and making mistakes. At this point I've nearly finished the first sleeve and so will only have one more sleeve and the collar to knit before sewing it all up - just in time for the warmer weather!!
I found this test on Riggwelter's site and thought I'd have a go and I think the results are quite accurate - DH would definitely agree to the 'quite moody' part! And I definitely like my comfort.
|What Your Soul Really Looks Like|
You are not a very grounded person. You prefer dreams to reality. For you, it's all about possibilities.
You believe that people see you for how you are, not how you look. But deep down, you know that's not exactly true.
Your near future is in a very different place (both physically and mentally) from where you are right now.
For you, love is all about caring and comfort. You couldn't fall in love with someone you didn't trust.
