I haven't got a great deal else to show you this week. School is really draining me. I have a really big class this year, and just keeping up with the day to day marking and preparation is eating into my knitting time. I've knitted a bit of my 'July' sock, started my September socks and started (and frogged) a project I'm knitting as part of a 'Something Blue' swap on Phoenix Knitting Forums. The pattern itself isn't difficult, but almost every row is different, so you need to keep your wits about you! I managed to lose a stitch, and could I find it? NO! I kept undoing rows, one at a time, to no avail. So now I have 2 balls of yarn, ready to start again.
I do have a little something to look forward to later in the year. I returned to my LYS to have another try at spinning earlier this month. Mr Josiekitten has promised me a spinning wheel for my birthday, wedding anniversary and Christmas presents (December is a very expensive month for him!) and I wanted to make sure that it was going to be money well spent! I was much more relaxed 2nd time round, and was really pleased with my efforts. I used some Shetland fleece, and it feels wonderfully soft. I have 38g and am determined to find a pattern to show it off! Here it is in its skein. Ta da!
