Not Spinning, Knitting
I haven't done a lot of spinning this week because I've been knitting. It was actually the uncontrollable urge to knit that led me to the drop spindle kit on the internet. So on Tuesday I just had to buy some wool. There isn't a lot of choice in the city where I work. I went into the one and only wool shop and I'm afraid to say it is still very 'old ladies knickers'! :-) One of the department stores came up trumps though and I managed to get a really nice purple yarn. The pattern is one I found while digging through my Mum's old knitting patterns and magazines. Its from 1991 but I think its going to stand the test of time. Anyway I like it so who cares what anyone else thinks!
