Back in December I told you that I’d share my 3rd best Christmas present with you. Well, finally, here it is…
Throughout Christmas I was suffering with a cold with a very tickley cough, so although I started reacquainting myself with how to spin, I very quickly realised that the small fibres from the wool I was spinning were aggravating my cough.
Unfortunately the cold and cough turned out to be one of those that goes on for weeks and weeks and I haven’t spun since just after Christmas. However this pause did give me time to think about what I was doing. Although I’m still very much a novice, I’ve decided I’ve familiarise myself enough with the very prickly stuff I was spinning and am going to spin some left over Christmas coloured pedigree Jacob roving.
So, from tomorrow onward, I’m going to be doing the 15 minutes spinning a day that I’ve set as one of my goals this year, and however arty my yarn turns out, I’m going knit myself a pair of Christmas socks with it.
Unless you’ve any better suggestions – and please don’t say an Italian flag!
