finally I am starting to feel better and have actually got some spinning done! But before I show you, I must tell you about 2 wonderful presents I received from internet aquaintances:
firstly from Natalie at The Yarn Yard, some gorgeous Falkland wool dyed in this months club colours. I was so happy to get it as its just gorgeous and I really appreciate her kindness:
And secondly, I swapped some Spunky Eclectic club fibre with Leanne (willwork4wool on Rav) and when it arrived it had this beautiful merino/ cashmere batt with it. Again, it really made my day and I really appreciate her kindness too:
I've finished spinning some fibre I bought from Shunklies ages ago - its lovely 19 micron merino, not washed yet so still a bit curly. Its about sport weight so socks may be in its future or a stole.
I've also wound off about 1oz of singles I made out of a 6oz bump of merino I got from Lakehouse Loft Fibres and are going to wash them and see what happens!
My lovely yellow socks have made no progress due to all the spinning activities occuring.
I went for my cardiology appt. in Bristol on Thursday and the heart patch is looking REALLY good - I've gone from having about 300 bubbles crossing my atrial septum to about 8!!! He kept me there for half the day having all sorts of tests because he thought I looked so rough but couldn't put his finger on what was making me so ill either. But whatever it is, its on its way out finally. Onwards and upwards ...
