Trying to make the most of it

Now that I am concentrating on losing some weight, I find it hard to find time to do some crafty things.

I finally managed to finish my weaved scarf. This time it actually turned out to be a scarf and not some short piece of material like the first project I made.

I can’t wait for autumn to come for it to get cold. It feels so soft and squishy.

I also did start another seacoast jumper, however I think I will pull it back as I doubt it will fit me by autumn. So I am just sticking to scarves and other bits that are one size.

Here is my “English Weather” scarf. Grey with some bright spots. I am just using some left overs from the schoppelwolle reggae ombre and a random grey yarn. We had a four hour journey ahead of us so best time to get some knitting in as at work I just seem too busy.

So yeah, nowhere near enough time, but better some than none.

Changes…

To say that it’s been a while would be the understatement of the year…

First of all, thank you to all of you who have stuck around 🙂 I really do appreciate it and was quite surprised.

So, where have I been hiding? Mainly at the gym and at work to be honest. I guess I went through quite a bit of a mental rough patch, so I needed to focus on something and not look sideways to see how upset I was with life. Well, it seems to have worked and I seem to have come out of it better and stronger than ever.
I now have lost 21 lbs since January and work is going really well too.
Sadly, in my stupid phase, I did something really, really stupid…  I Sold my spinning wheels 😦
But don’t worry, what’s on my wheel Wednesday will return next month once I have a new wheel.
Maybe in the meantime you guys can give me some advice on a new wheel?

I definitely want a castle style wheel again, like my Minstrel, but I found the Minstrel a little loud at times.
At the moment I have my eye on the  Woolmaker’s Bliss or I am thinking about a Schacht wheel, either the Ladybug or the Sidekick. Of course there are huge price differences so I am looking online for a bargain. Hehehe, so if you come across one let me know.

Well, that’s it for now. I’ll try and update you, in the next few days,on the very little knitting I have been doing over the last few months. And maybe I can finally manage to get that post out about the last yarn I have spun.

Also, I am looking for a name for my new instagram account… Any suggestions?
