I have to confess that there has not been a great deal of spinning in the josiekitten household today. Mainly because I was doing something else really nice!! I went into Norwich to see my good friend Snoopydog, and we had a lovely time catching up. It was Snoops' birthday this week, so of course a squishy present was in order. I managed to get my hands on a Plucky Knitter Color Affection kit. I'm sure you'll be able to read more about it over on Snoopydog's blog later this weekend. The only trouble is, I want one now!! You may remember that I bought some yarn for one when Mr JK and I were in London back in May. I must dig those skeins out and get them wound. I think it'll make the perfect beach knitting project!
Anyway, back to the spinning. I have made a start on the last two bits of Shetland fibre - white Shetland and Moorit Shetland. The Moorit is a rare breed, so I feel quite lucky to be spinning some of its fibre. I had the company of a certain little cat while I was spinning. Flo was fascinated by the moving shadows and spent ages watching the bobbin turning round (on the carpet!)
Here's the first bobbin spun up with half of each fibre on it. I shall spin the remainder tomorrow.
Now excuse me while I go and sort out Flo. She has just come downstairs, making a throaty miaow, so I know she has a 'trophy' of some sort. The trouble is, she has good taste - it's a skein of mink and cashmere yarn wound into a yarn cake, all ready to knit! Love her!! xxx
