This year Skip and I went up to Port Perry for Canada Day. It's about 25km NNE of where we live and has a nice park that slopes down to Lake Scugog.
A couple of my knitting friends were there with their spinning and weaving guild, demonstrating wheel spinning. I took my drop spindle along and joined them for a half an hour or so.
It was really windy so I had to make sure the roving was downwind from the spindle so everything didn't get all tangled up.
I enjoyed the YarnHarlot's Canada Day post where she opined about what Canadians are.
I finished the Dianna shawl and need to get it blocked. Pictures will follow.
With the Dianna shawl done, I needed to start a new project (not that I don't have a bunch of UFOs to get at) so I knit another water bottle cozy for Skip. His golf buddies have been teasing him about the unsightly one I made him a couple of years ago so I decided to replace it with a handsome dark green one. I added a black golf hole and white flag. After I'm finished felting it, I'll stitch a yellow flag stick. Here it is before felting.
There's still too much stitch definition so I'll have to run it through the wash a couple more times. Front loading washers aren't the most efficient for felting but with the 2000rpm (for real!) final spin cycle, they sure get a lot of the moisture out of the clothes - supposedly 25% more than top loading washers.
