On the weaving front I've got the 8-shaft ready to do the final tie up, just have to get a warp on her. The warp is ready to go, my back isn't. The back issue is I think due to cutting out fabric and possibly my adhesion issues as well.
I'm doing my exercises to help it and seeing a Bowen therapist as well as planning on going to a myofacial release massage therapist (not the physio I'd been seeing) and probably an accupuncturist as well, but not all at once, have to do what I can afford.
On the sewing side of things I have cut out 2 pairs of waterproof trousers (both for Dh, but one was too small, so they're mine now), 1 pair of culottes for me, a shirt for me, sweatshirt for Dh, a zip up sweatshirt for G and jeans for me. I've finished the 2 pairs of waterproof pants and started the sweatshirt for Dh.
|The multi ones are Dh's, the black are now mine.|
On the knitting front I've finished a jersey, a pair of socks, cast on a hat, planned for a cardigan and won enough yarn to make a jersey in some alpaca/finn blend which is coming from the US, can't wait for that to arrive. It was part of a KAL called the Fall Sweater Challenge.
The colours are naturals and it should look wonderful when finished, I'll either make another Strokkur or this pattern:
|this one depends on whether I can get gauge. If I can the main colour will be a dark brown and the contrasts will be cream and a lovely oatmeal.|
|I finished these socks for Dh, Ribby Socks|
|Wound 970g of yarn into two enormous cakes for a future project|
|Chose the yarn and pattern for the Fall Sweater Challenge, this was chosen before I won the yarn and will get started first, as soon as I finish the hat|
And this is the hat which I'm knitting in the leftover yarn from the next project
|This is my wonderful (and now well worn) Eased jersey. All in handspun on different bases (merino and Haunui from Heavenly Wools)|
|My other project is this lot. I'm going to grow some sprouts for my summer sandwiches and I've got pea and sweet pea seeds to plant as well as a mesclun mix.|
