Snatching a moment to speak to you all between filling a skip and trying to get on top of the ironing! This episode is accompanied by spinning on the Traddy.

On and Off the Needles and Hooks
I've cast on a Liesl in an early handspun, but not got very far with it. I've knit two cowls as a test knit for Knit.Spin.Cake (details here and here). I've also cast on another test knit, a sock with travelling cables (no Rav notes yet). I've also bought some Sublime merino DK in raspberry pink to crochet a Dorothy.

Spin It!
Currently I'm spinning a rainbow braid bought ages ago from Krafty Koala on the Joy and a large carded batt of grey Jacob from  Shearer Girl Yarns.

Fibre East Goodies
In 67 minutes I got quite  lot! I bought yarns from the Knitting Goddess, fibre from Fluff'n'Stuff, LongdrawJames, Shearer Girl Yarns and The Wool Room, some throwsters' waste, some Knitpro Karbonz and some mill-soiled undyed sockyarn from  Texere. I also bought a new spindle from Spin City UK.

Out and About
We went to Highclere Castle - great for Downton Abbey fans!
