Well, here I am back in London. If it wasn't sunny it would be a very depressing experience. Still, it is rather nice to be reunited with all my knitting and spinning things. I can definitely feel a spinning session coming on. I didn't realise how much I had missed it until I saw my wheel again.The alpaca fleece I was offered in Oz didn't quite make it to the house in time but will be there waiting for me on my next trip.
You may have noticed that I have gone back through my posts from Australia and added the relevant photographs.It seems to make more sense that way. I enjoyed how the lack of knitting progress made me depart from the usual subject matter of my blog. I need to think about how I will continue with this theme. I think travel will inevitably make its way in but there will always be fibre content.
Back to the knitting - I have finished the Noro socks.
There were times when I wasn't particularly enjoying them.The yarn has all the features that Noro's detractors cite - lumpy, stringy, annoying knots, inconsistencies, but having finished them, they're very pretty aren't they?
