Last week was spent prepping and then painting every windowframe in the house; they now all look like this:
|Nicely white, with 3 coats of gloss enamel and 1 of primer where needed.|
|This is what's left after 3 loads have left.|
|3 skeins of romney (dyed) and one of the everlasting perendale|
|Halfway through flick carding the East Fresian wool, planning on spinning this for socks and the silk that came with it will be spun for embroidering on the socks.|
|While doing all this I've been drinking either this stuff or Bundaberg Creaming Soda; both very yummy in the heat.|
No real knitting, well, 2 rows of my socks and 4 on the shawl plus a lifeline, but I think the above may have some impact on that. I've also printed out 2 sewing patterns and am in the process of trimming them and sticking them together. One is for my regency stays, the other for workout pants; polar opposites, but both necessary. I need to finish the stays by the end of the month (eeep!) and the pants by 15th February for the Patternreview.com competition.
I will be working on the bits with deadlines first; so that's the stays, the workout pants, the East Fresian spin and then the shawl as it's 1st quarter finish.
I guess that's it for now, hoping I might get a week without major physical labour and that I'll still get some time for little workouts.
