Charity Knitting at Knit 1 & Roving Roving Roving

Between the new shop and Christmas I have not had a chance to get over to Knit 1 for Charity Knitting. I was a bit nervous considering all of the sleepsong silliness from a couple weeks ago.

Fortunately there was no drama. Flo, Vivian, Anne and her daughter were all there just like a couple of months ago when I last attended. As it was before a fun afternoon of knitting was had by all. I am not sure why there was a fight in the first place. Still, it was nice to see that it has not translated to the Charity knitting group.

On another slightly related from Flo it being treated for Cancer. Everything is going well at the moment. Still, prayer is required. So if all of you out there in blog land would not mind, please keep her in your prayers and thoughts.

Today I did not get much knitting done. Although this is the first time that I have built something since the operation. I built myself a drop spindle. It is currently hanging up and drying. Most of the ones that I have seen are bare wood. I covered mine with some spar varnish just because.

I will bring it in on Wednesday. Fortunately the shop I work at sells roving. So I suppose I am going to try and make my own yarn. It was only a matter of time as I descend into the madness that is knitting. Now I am going to have to buy a spinning wheel. Then I am going to have to figure out how many sheep can live in my back yard. I suppose I will have to repair the fence before I move in the sheep. I should probably ask my wife if i can have sheep before I buy them

You see it is never ending cycle. Be safe out there and keep your stick on the ice.

yes always ask first or you might be sleeping with the sheep

It's a slippery slope indeed!

You could always build a spinning wheel. Tim keeps saying he wants to build me one, but I bet he'd get it done sooner if he had someone to build one with. . . he's got all the woodworking tools it would require. . .:)
