I couldn't even pick up my knitting or crochet AND I have gone off of coffee.
So now Friday evening (whoops!! nearly Saturday) 12 lbs lighter, still drinking tea (yuck!!) and desperately trying to finish Mums waistcoat. Why the rush? It is her Birthday tomorrow and I have this silly picture in my mind of the box I plan to put the waist coat in and the tissue paper I want to wrap it in. Daft I know but I haven't knitted an item of clothing for years. Yes bags, scarfs etc etc but not something like this. (I am just glad my Mum is only little as it meant I only had to knit the first size - well she doesn't have to do it up!!)
The good thing about giving a gift to my Mum is I can read her like a book. If she like something she says "Oh you shouldn't have spent your money on that" if she doesn't like something, you get this lovely 'false' smile and she says how much she likes it.
So I will wait and see................................
It brings a meaning to every stitch is filled with love!!
So I shall go and get on with that but On Tuesday evening I learnt how to spin (well the very basics). What do you think? I happen to be chuffed as nuts with my little ball of wool. I have been lent a drop spindle (I can't seem to get it started!!) but now have the hunger of finding a wheel to either buy or hire.
Hope you have a lovely weekend.
