As I have mentioned many, many times on this blog - I adore Jo at Limegreen Jelly's fibre. Over the weekend I spun up 2 1/2's of two of her plaits into singles. The pink is my birthday pressie from Jo and is merino/baby alpaca and silk and the silver is cashmere/merino silk. I have 50g of the silver left to spin and and about 15g of the pink.

Inspired by a lady I met at the spinning tent at the Spring Fayre at Ardingly show ground on Sunday I have a plan for this yarn rootling about in my mind and have the urge to experiment with the textural side of the singles. I see a cast on in my not to distant future.
Mmmm more flowers from M - such purty colours.
For those who know me IRL and especially those who know of my recent hair deal with a mutual friend.....I did it! I cut myself a number 3 last night - totally my natural colour. The description 'skinhead-badger' comes to mind. I also remind myself (a wee bit) of the baddie lady in Blake's 7, which is rather bemusing - I'm not as striking looking as her but the evil bit is pretty spot on.

Oooh, a Servalan haircut! I wanted one at the time, but was scared by the thought of not being able to hide behind my long hair. Silly, innit? J x
