According to the weather report, it’s currently 22% humidity here in London. Which just goes to show that you should never trust the BBC. I swear, it’s more like 85, and although I was planning to work all day on the blue barf, I’ve finally tossed it in favour of sitting at the computer near the open window, hoping that a breeze might wander in.

There’s not much in the way of pictures to show, I have been spinning a bunch, and doing some blends, but most of it I can’t show you atm. This is a bit of what I’m working on though:

green mohair

It’s some advance mohair from mum, the kind of stuff which will be appearing in her Etsy shop later in the year. It’s great fun to spin and comes out with a gorgeous sheen! Sadly, this was all I had of this particular colour (it was a mixed bag) so I’ll be combining it with some other yarns in the project I have planned.

I also have an FO:

Fiori di Zucca

Pattern: Fiori di Zucca by the lovely Alice. It’s the June Socktopus club sock and I love it to bits! If it wasn’t such bleh stincky weather today I’d be wearing them now.

    The socks are really beautiful! Also, the spinning, too! We have been having hot and humid weather here in the Boston USA area too. I don’t know which is worse - being hot and sweaty or being cold and shivering. Well, at least when it is cold you can wear your woolens!

    Well, the official weather report here is 83% humidity already, and bound to get worse as the day goes on, so I can feel your pain. A little, anyway….new house = air conditioning, so I’m not too miserable inside. Stepping outside is another story, though!

    I love the mohair. Is there a link here already to your mom’s etsy shop? Although if you’re going to convince us all to buy mohair locks, then you might need to do that SSAL on them that you teased us with once upon a time. (I know you’re busy, I’m not nagging–but I miss the spin-a-longs!)

    Love the handspun - great color! The socks are very pretty too - hope it gets a little cooler so you can wear them soon!
