It is soooo quiet here today!
It is the first time in 7 weeks that we do not have builders in the house and rather weird!
I find it incredible how quickly we adapt to our environment and the various noises that it brings with it.
Over the past 6 weeks we have had intense banging and drilling, and now the stillness :)
I am not complaining - it is wonderful, but very different.
Our build is not yet finished, but with the festive season on our doorstep all the work is going down a notch. We will also be doing most of the work ourselves from here on in, so we will only have the possibility to work on the reno when we have a couple of hours to spare.
Taking advantage of the stillness and the cleanish floorspace I have taken my photo for today to incorporate my spinning wheel.
I have had this wheel for quite a while now (roughly 2 years :O) and have only sat in front of it a couple of times - purely because I kept getting frustrated as it just did not want to do what I wanted of it!
Last week I had the chance to go and take a spinning lesson and I have been practicing since then :)
Apparently you can start to call yourself a spinner once you have spun about 1kg of yarn - well I still have roughly 950g to go :D LOL!
I am managing to get the yarn spun a lot thinner than my first attempts and I am actually starting to enjoy the process of the spinning now :)
Let me tell you about this week's WIPs.
These are Jas's Socks.
They have grown a little since last week and I am hoping to get some more done on them today.
I am enjoying the pattern and do hope to have them done in time for her birthday.
Here is my Misae
Due to the build I have had little to no time to spend on this really enjoyable pattern and I don't think I will be able to finish it before the Shawl-along deadline on Monday :(
I know that some of you out there have been progressing wonderfully and I look forward to seeing all the lovely Misae Shawls on Monday (I will have a linky here on the blog then. You can also share your finished shawls over on Ravelry)
Do be sure to share your gorgeous pics, all finished shawls will be in the running to win a ball of beautiful Rainbow yarn from Andrea @ Wollehimmel.
Reading Wise: I am still reading the same title as last time and am enjoying the book :)
What have you been up to this week?
I will be sharing this post with all of my creative weekly friends so do pop on over there for some inspiration :)
See you soon.
Feel free to drop by on Fridays and share your Finished objects with us all :)
