Before the school holidays I got a cold, as I was recovering from that I started feeling dizzy and off balance and that has continued ever since to some degree or other. My chiropractor has had a good go, but as it hasn't helped that I don't think it's part of the issue. My doctor and I both think I probably have a viral inner ear thing going on and we just have to wait it out, it's either that or related to my perimenopause. I'm kind of hoping for the inner ear thing, at least that has a probable time frame of just another couple of weeks; the other could go on for years! I'm also being sent in for an iron test though due to the other issues PM is causing for me which I don't need to go into here.
Financially we're feeling a smidge better, so I've bought some yarn to replace the stuff I had to sell, not all of it, but there are a few to come aside from these and I'm investing more in DK than fingering for a change as I still have tonnes of fingering
|This will be a Pixelated for me using grey and dark purple as the other two colours|
|This will be socks for me for wearing in boots probably|
|and this is going with a single red skein I have to make striped socks|
I've got 2 pairs of socks on the go at the moment, not counting the 2 that are on hold.

The reason I want the mill and the heddles? The mill would enable me to warp up much longer warps and the heddles should give me a clear shed without warp threads being at different heights, the current string heddles can be a bit all over the place which means more paying attention and less rhythm.
On the sewing front I've got the bodice done for my 1810's dress, I need to trim and pin the pleats for the top of the skirt, but need the lounge floor to be free of children and my head to be clear to finish that.
