Knitting Bee Bounty.
Knitting Bee this month was at Marianne's house. Another chum, brought a bag of unwanted yarn with her in an attempt to increase her cupboard space. I managed to resist most of it except for some 4ply pure wool yarn in a colour I can only describe as Gentleman's Sock Grey. Enough however for many socks for me and a chance to practise my dyeing skills.
Here is the result, it was probably a mistake asking Magnus to model it for me. I'm beginning to understand how the pigeon felt. The nice thing is, I showed the yarn to Anne, the previous owner and she thought it was some exotic silky expensive stuff.
On the continuing saga of the tail, I'm afraid the vet has decreed that it has to come off - not the whole thing but definately the bit that doesn't work any more, ( see first picture for details. ) Archie is already sharpening the axe!
