Update

Thought might use Monday as an update on my projects day. Well actually I've been waiting for the weather to cooperate to take better picture but as it is refusing ...

I gave up and attempted some photos this morning.

Firstly I had to find a place with reasonable light. Chose the lounge because of the almost floor to ceiling windows and the coffee table seemed like a good display place but first I had to clear it off:
Definitely a his and hers coffee table.

Now for some projects.

Basic Blue Socks were completed then I totally forgot to photograph them. Thankfully K has sent me some. She blocked them on her smaller sock blocker so they didn't get too stretched.

Waterlilies is spun.

Fibre: Merino hand dyed
Spun on
: Majacraft Suzie
WPI
: 10
Weight
: 260grams
Originally I thought to do a EZ Baby Surprise Jacket but my knitting group informed me I have to do something for me as it is my first handspun so I've chosen Dulcie by Woolly Wormhead

I've also been working with some of my other stash from Queensland Spinners Weavers and Fibre Artists and the results

On the Spinning Wheel:

I have absolutely fallen in love with the colours. They are all muted except for the green which just lifts the colour. The plan for this is a 2ply sock yarn. We'll see.

And on my Kundert Spindle:
The ball is a very soft purple/grey mix which I'm going to ply with the grey. Not sure how many plies this one will be. Have been thinking to try and cable ply this. Again we shall see.

Well time to go and do some work. I thought about cleaning the house. Looked outside, looked at the dog, two children ,two cats and husband and thought 'Why bother it only look as bad when I'm finished'

Keep smiling :-)
