No pics again today! Why? Cos it was miserable and gray here today - perfect for me to wear my newly finished thrummed mittens! N ot too good for pictures. Top temp was only 10 degrees. It was unpleasantly cold in our loungeroom as we watched Dr Who, the new Dr Who. I was spinning and my fingies were quite cold thank you waether gods! And the one that made something die in our central heating....
I showed the spun silk and the thrummed mittens to Marta (who sourced my wheel) and she thought they wer both very nice and I should sell thrummed mittens, maybe felt/full them a little first. But who would pay me a bucketload for brightly coloured handspun thrummed mittens? Apart from a few desperate Newfies ;-)
Note that I have turned my political side off again. It isn't very strong anyway. Pam raised a good point about how the USA is expected to go in and help out with problems. I am going to make no further comments.
Tomorrow I hop on a plane and fly off to Brisbane, nearly a thousand miles away (by road - by plane? probably 800 miles?). It's a long way away. They had 25 degrees there today compared to our 10. Which reminds me - I'd better check the forecast. No point leaving the winter woolies at home if it is freezing in Brisvegas. 18, 20, 21 degrees when I am up there. I am likely to fry not freeze. LOL.
I'm unlikely to be blogging whilst I am away, though one never knows.... Anyway, do all the things I wouldn't do (eat, drink, be merry, etc ;-) and we'll chat later. I get back on Tuesday night.
