My few of my favourite things are yarn and books ,so Ginny's yarn along is a great way to spend an hour reading what others are reading and making with yarn
I joined the Natural dye studio rainbow club awhile back , and this is my selection all lined up. I seem to have one month missing ,I cant find it .I have a lot of yarn and I am usually very good at putting this club in the right box but hay ho , I am only human.
I usually bribe the Mr as I have that terrible carpal tunnel thingy I make him feel sorry for me and I always bake him a cake but when he saw the scale of yarn he said "Not on your Nellie", charming!!
Incidently, if you are admiring my gorgeous hand crafted skein winder I bought it from here.
They also make Nostepinne” or “nostepinde” .It is a Scandinavian word that means “nest-stick.”; the original Ball Winder. It is a tool used to wind a center-pull yarn ball. A nostepinne is portable, easy to use, and creates a center-pull ball that can be used without changing the twist in the yarn. I know you it is easily to the wool winder but there is something nice on occasion about using the old fashioned way. It connects me with the way women did it hundreds of years.
After all that I have decided to continue with the rainbow club. I really want a full spectrum of the rainbow. I will of course share my new purchases as soon as they arrive, yes, that's right I have been shopping and now added some more skeins. I can't wait.
I am reading this novel is accessible women's fiction, with a darker edge. It's narrated by Saffron Mackleroy whose husband was murdered 18 months earlier. Saffron has a lot to cope with: her 14 year old daughter has just shared a big secret, Saffron has a difficult relationship with food, and her husband's killer has started writing to her and threatening her family. Can she hold her life together and recover from her husband's devastating death?
