School is BACK

Thank the powers that be. School is back. The 13yo is in high school and the 3yo has kinder. At least 1 hour of peace. The computer is fixed thanks to the 19yo wizz.

Now I just have socks to knit (3yo is nagging again). The third mystery shawl and the fouth mystery shawl also. I had to start this again.

Spinning a good yarn with my white merino but I have to start spinning for the blokes next jumper. I don't have any tops left so I will have to spin some raw fleece. Poor me. Nothing like a greazy fleece. I like it.

Unfortunately I awoke this morning and my left wrist is hurting, as if someone stepped on it. I wouldn't mind if I had been overdoing something but all I have been doing is watching Stargate Atlantis. No wrist action at all! Well I am now knitting and spinning and doing farm work. Hopefully the work will sort this wrist out as a rest hasn't.

Waiting for friday to see who wins the yarn. Keep your guesses coming as no one is on the spot yet. close though.

I am working on my Knit socks kit swap, needles yarn and almost the pattern. The bag is drafted up and I just have to sew it. I will post a picci a few weeks after I send it. Just in case my recipient has a look here. I don't think she knows who I am. I hope not anyway.

Bye, off to collect eggs now and hope that our new chookies have started laying!
Fingers crossed.

Can I put my 3 year old in kindergarten too? Pleeeease? He won't be starting k. until fall of 2008 (he'll be almost 6) because his birthday is so late in the year (mid-Nov). I'm gonna guess 2 weeks on the bobbin, esp. since you have a 3 year old! Lol! (And no, I have no idea how long spinning takes, as I've never spun.)

i guess it could be more like 3 hours 35 mins if it is from pre carded tops that makes it easier to flow thru and if you have the yelling and organising down pat it can be done easily in front of the tele

4 hours 10 minutes?

I said 4 hours 50 minutes but it looks as if BLOGGER swallowed my comment, so I'll repeat it. Hope it doesn't turn up of its own accord after I send this one too.
