Jacob wool and riding through puddles.

Summer in Cornwall! Rain, rain rain and more rain (although it was sunny today)
Yesterday we (me mostly) were climbing the walls so depite the pouring rain we went off to the woods. On the way we came upon an escaped bull who was enormous and a buzzard who flew off as I got my camera out. Now K is riding the bike I have to run to keep up with him, at last all the walks we do may have a wanted side effect of losing weight! Within 5 minutes of arriving home the clouds blew away and the sun peeked out.My very own 2 ply wool :) OK it's a very very small ball but I span it all by myself.....
on this lovely spinning wheel......



and knitted it! Now I just have to keep on spinning that Jacob fleece and get on with washing the BFL.
I've seen a wheel in need of repair on ebay so hoping no one else bids!

Lovely wool, I'm bust spinning a Jacobs at the moment and making myself a scarf first.
Good luck with the wheel bidding!

Lovely wool. It must be very satisfying spinning it yourself and then knitting it. Where do you find the time?! Last time I checked the alpacas were still not shorn, but I'll be going again next week, so fingers crossed ;)
