Gorgeous Man is back in the country. He arrived very late Monday night. This week has been about getting life back in order and playing with my new spinning wheel.
It came in a big box, that was opened for inspection at the airport by SARS.
That would be the South African Revenue Service. There was an import duty charged, but it was minimal (much less than we were expecting having heard the horror stories…).
Here she is.
Each Ladybug comes with her own ladybug stuck on somewhere.
Mine is at the front where I can see her. Gorgeous Girl is most taken with this feature, and looks at the “Lady beetle” several times a day.
There has been completed yarn from the new wheel.
Gorgeous Man also brought some stunning natural Blue Faced Leicester and some beautiful bamboo and merino, and merino and tussah silk top for me to to spin.
Gorgeous Girl asked to knit this week. So here she is with her first knitting ‘lesson’.
I’m hoping to have my charity cardigan finished this weekend (don’t have to work, and some travelling time in the car).
I’ve also been doing the Socktober mystery sock KAL on Ravelry. That has been great fun. I need to get a move on with that too, I’m a bit behind.
Since I can’t quilt when I’m tired, and I don’t sleep when Gorgeous Man is away, there has been no quilting for the last two weeks, slowly catching up on sleep…
Hope things are well with all of you. I’m also slowly catching up on my blog reading.
