A Very Busy July

I didn't realise that it has been a month since I sent out a blog page, sorry about that.

I have tried to keep my blog to 'woolly' things, but I really wanted to share this with you.   So much has been going on, but the main thing that has happened

.... I have 5 sisters who all live in New Zealand.  I was having a break, watching the tennis and I hear people walk into the house - this is nothing unusual, as we have lots of people coming and going all the time, so I just sat - but then....a sister walked into my room...hello !!!   What a wonderful surprise.   Needless to say, we had a fantastic week, shopping, eating, drinking and talking.  Wonderful. Her name is Tracy and she is the creator of Stray Cat Sock Yarn

With all this wonderful weather, I have also been washing fleece - Wensleydale freshly shorn, and some of my own wool from my sheep Mary and  Poppins.

I have a new Spinning Gauge Tool out now.   It has groves for yarn to be placed in.   It is very useful to use while spinning and also after the yarn is finished and washed, to decide on knitting patterns or needle sizes.
