Rainbows and fleece.
The clocks went back an hour yesterday so night now falls with a great thump at about five in the evening. Time to close the curtains and keep warm. There might be frost on the roof in the mornings but our tomatoes are still ripening in the greenhouse. Feet have been finished and mitts have been made, a pair for Archie with less Frill than mine but the rest of the pattern stays the same.
It has been super rainy this weekend but the storm eased just enough to let this rainbow through, well worth getting soaked for.
I have almost finished spinning my first fleece, a gift from the lovely Julie and it is likely to turn into a cosy cardigan of immense proportion. One of my Spinning Guild gave me a Shetland fleece last weekend and on Thursday I met Kim who gave me two whole fleeces and a big bag full of mixed fibres. I'm not sure if spinners are an exceptionally generous lot or very clever people who want to lure us all over to the Distaff side. Either way, I have a lot of spinning to keep me company on the dark winter nights.
