So, what did you do today Charlotte?


Forgotten Tales from Hedgehog Fibres – I love this

Well, I dropped Astrid off at Lorraine’s, went for coffee and knitted a couple of inches of Astrid’s wrist warmers. Then I came home, sent an email or two, during the course of which I wrote a list of things I wanted to do and things I had to do. Got the post and spent the next half hour trying to convince myself my new plum cashmere custom yarn is a semi-solid. Then I put the bugaboo and the maclaren on ebay. Then I wound yarn – with a winder, but still no swift, which involves unwinding the wool in little trails over a chair and around my tiny room, wind, repeat, avoid playful cats.


I ordered some lovely camel for a christmas hat, as in present, not themed. I made another cup of tea and sat down with a Biona maple syrup waffle biscuit, decided to take photos of said wool and current knitting projects and then I sat down to write a long overdue blog post which isn’t about any of the blog post subjects I’ve been mulling over the past week at all. And then put everything on flickr and ravelry for good measure.

Yesterday on the other hand I made a dress, finished a bag and little pyjama pants and a blanket and a little hat.

    I made some fingerless gloves based on the inspiration of your knitting frenzy. It’s so addictive. And I was doing cables! In the round!
