I bought a pasta making machine this morning. I have been after one of these for quite some time. I saw an ad for some and hot footed it into Whitehaven. I hope I can get on with it okay.
This afternoon was our Craft and Natter at Beckermet. It was well attended - 12 people altogether. I forgot to take my camera. It was good to see people doing various crafts - knitting, crochet, sewing - machine and hand, and cross stitch. We were talking of making the session for three hours instead of two. We were also thinking about whether to put on a day long C&N, perhaps in September or October. I think it would be wuite fun. We have enough time to spread the word and if it is successful then we can have them quarterly, or something like that. I will post more about this on the C&N blog.
I took my ASJ to do. I was also very kindly gifted someone's knitting needles and crochet hooks. J does not knit anymore, so has passed her needles onto me. I was quite honoured. Again more on the C&N blog.
My lace weight Bluefaced Leicester arrived this morning. I have not long since opened the package. The yarn smells, well, as you think it would, woolly. I am soooo looking forward to dyeing it. I think the first skein may just be shades of purple, followed by a pinky one, then maybe a red. I'm quite tempted to do an orangey one as well.
The sinusitus symptoms are still knocking around, although are being kept at bay with regular paracetamol.
