Last weekend I decided to make the most of the good weather and get to grips with a texel fleece that I got via The Nude Ewe .
It was huge:
and completely filled the bath
Even with the lovely sunshine we’ve had this week, it still took several days to dry; lanolin removed, it weighs just over 2 kilos so will take quite a while to card, even with the drum carder. It’ll keep me out of mischief over the summer, though. I have started spinning a very small amount on the drop spindle and am liking it very much so far.
Last Saturday of course was World Wide Knit in Public Day, so several members of the intrepid “Dog, Chicken & Aardvark” (*sigh*, it’s a long story…) group made their way to Stanmer Park in Brighton, where, as well as knitting, much cake was eaten – so much so that we are thinking of renaming the event World Wide Scoff in Public Day.

There has been some knitting as well, but as it is just a few more rounds on some socks, it’s really not worthy of a photo at this stage.
PS: Happy Father’s Day to all you Dads!
