I like Sundays. The whole day stretches out with no interruptions and there seems to be no end to the small tasks you can tick off one by one. So far today I have:

  • Spun the last two bobbins of ‘Deep Sea’
  • Washed my very awesome Wensleydale fleece
  • Dyed some grey Polwarth to test out oven dyeing
  • Eaten lunch
  • Chatted to family
  • Caught up on Cast-On

Some of these things, I admit were done at the same time. But hey, it’s not even half past two!

This is the ‘Deep Sea’ so far:


Once I’ve plied the last lot, I’ll finish it all together and it will packed up for a special someone with a birthday. For those of you who are equally in love, or just curious, it’s BFL dyed by Lisa Souza. Brilliant, quality fibre. Gorgeous colours. Go get some.

I’ve been in love for a while, but it wasn’t until I remembered I had this in my stash:


… that a very cool idea started to germinate. More on that when the current deadlines are met.

This afternoon? Visit to Wholefoods (aaah the joy of living within walking distance of the best supermarket in the UK); Finish (maybe) the second Sockapalooza sock; An inch or so of green ribbing in front of a movie; Who knows …

What does your perfect Sunday involve?
