Yes, I've been a bad blogger.
This is due in some part to the ipad.
Last week has disappeared into the ether due to free apps that I've been downloading.
I've decided that I won't turn it on until this evening today.
So what been going on in the Clicky Needles' household?
My new Terramundi Pot came.
I went for some very nice stripes.
I went to Kit and Natter at Along Came Polly and bought a ball of Adriafil Knitcol to make an ipad cosy.
It was only when I got it home I realised it was the same sorts colours as the pot.
Kind of fitting.
I've not started the cosy yet, but my Drops Cardi is coming along well. I'm half way up the second sleeve although all that stocking stitch has been getting to me and I'm becoming a bit meh about it.
I pinned it together with the one sleeve to try it on and had a pleasant surprise.
I think I like it!
I'm now galvanised back into action!
I took DD riding on Saturday to local stables so sewed in some ends on the little granny squares. Blimey this is a bit tedious. Six ends for each square. I'm going to keep on top of them though, definitely not leave them all to the end.
Yesterday I drove some friends to Forest Fibres in the Forest of Dean. Four of us went. Although it is an on-line shop you can go for a visit if you phone ahead.
We have a jolly good poke around the lovely Ros' warehouse which was filled with all things fibre, spinning, yarn, dyes,
I bought this pack of merino tops named 'Autumn'.
We brought back in the car two spinning wheels (neither mine!) and assorted fibre.
I picked some of those purple french beans which have been eaten raw. Beans don't often make it into the pot in this house!
The blackberries were pretty good too.
And lastly some mixed flowers.
Well, its turned nasty today, chilly, drizzly and very grey.
I hope the weather is better for you wherever you are.
Somebody hide that ipad.......
