Come my friend , sit down with me

and have a chat and a cup of tea , ...... with perhaps a big slab of cake, or a scone with butter and jam, maybe a pancake(drop scone) , or just a plain digestive!
How I love food!
And Knitting !
This is Possum Handpainted yarn , that I got at the SECC in March , it will be a beret. How I love these colours !
How I love yarn !
Handspun , hand-dyed , Scottish angora from Skye , by teohandspun from Di Gilpins' shop in Perth .
Was visiting Perth at the weekend for an 80's Party , but had to do a little shopping beforehand , so visited Di Gilpins' shop in George Street . So much temptation , but I restricted myself to only 2 skeins , the angora and this ...!
This is the second one - Colinette Iona in Monet colourway , it really is the colours of Monets' paintings , so divine ! It is surrounded by my Froth Scarf , done in Rowan Kidsilk Haze , colourway ? why Heavenly of course!
And how I loathe , I mean love to Spin (no not the cycling exercise) , lookee , some yarn on the bobbin at last. Fibre is courtesy of New Lanark , and is really lovely. The chocolate brown fibre has longer ....fibres , and is a little courser but spins finer. The cream fibre is merino with shorter...fibres , and I keep spinning it quite thick. But am improving.
I think Kiwi and I are going to get along quite fine !
