According to my inner clock, Christmas is still a looooong way off. However, I have a little sneaking suspicion that it’s actually closer than I think, and therefore, I am going to make a list of Gifts I Plan to Make. Since Christmas is a long way off, I’m not actually going to cast on any yet, but it’s best to be prepared well in advance don’t you think.

Also, there’s every possibility that the List (previously only nebulously inside my head) may turn out to be longer than I suspected…


2 pairs handknit socks

1 handspun scarf (I have half the yarn done for this btw)

2 skeins handspun laceweight

4 skeins handspun sock

1 beaded lace Swallowtail.

See - It’s really not that long is it. And I have all the yarn except the other half of the scarf. And the stuff I haven’t spun yet…

I will keep you posted on the progress.

In other news, I am very happy to announce the return of the Sunday Spin-Along!

It will consist of a slightly different setup, and I’m re-christening it as you can see below. There will no longer be photo requirements, although if I do see a picture and I’m truly impressed by it I may send you a little something :-D The pdf format will also be scrapped, making it easier to publish, and therefore hopefully more frequent.

I am hoping to post Spin-Ins every week, with some gaps maybe if I happen to be away. Think of them as snippets, gossip, hints, tips that I’ve picked up or worked out and am keen to share. After all, the more I put the knowledge out there, the faster I can take over the world convert new spinners! Mark Sundays in your diary now as the time to catch up on news and maybe try a new technique - and comment along with all the other readers in stereo.


Save the button for your sidebar, and link it to the Spin-In category. See you Sundays!
