I know, everyone wants to know… how were the rest of the birthdays…more headaches, sweet sixteen tantrums, presents finished on time?
Well, no, no and no. No migraines, but my youngest had a fever and nightmares with a cold for my husband’s birthday, and we took my oldest out for lunch for her sweet sixteen and it was really, spectacularly bad! (we were trying a new restaurant and her pasta tasted like canned spaghetti)
I haven’t finished her fingerless mitts yet either, but I did manage to turn
this hand spun yarn
into these fingerless mitts.
I made these with two squares woven on the continuous square loom. With another two squares I also made a neck warmer.
I have also been spinning for a display at my youngest daughter’s school. The school hosted the Third Ecological Reunion of Rural Schools.
I showed my wool dyed in solar ovens as well as promoting the weaving class that I am teaching. At the moment there are about 15 mothers participating. I am pleased how popular the classes are and the interest and creativity being developed in the different things we are making with the “squares”.
The children are always interested in seeing how yarn is made, and a couple had a go with my drop spindle. So even though I caught my daughter’s cold, and have been snuffling and sneezing, I think June is finishing fine.
