Op shop crawls..with exciting finds! Vintage knitting and crochet patterns that were calling to me..
|First spun ball of wool - alpaca, 2 ply, approx 50 meters, 30grams|
The yarn pictured on the spindle is some sheep wool that I am playing with at the moment. It came from a generous veggie growing friend who had been storing it in her shed and had no use for it. How kind of her!

The garden is neglected but still providing generous harvests for our dinners. I'm excited about my pumpkins this year..there are many that have taken..I just hope we get enough more warm days to ripen them up.
There are sometimes helpers in the garden too! They like to dig up potatoes and plant stray leeks. They even search thoroughly for every tomato that is just the slightest shade of orange, because what could be more exciting than harvesting fresh tomatoes, right? Whatever their colour!
|The Man Vest - taking shape..or is it?|
What's been keeping you occupied (and out of mischief even) this week?
