Knitting and spinning as usual


i started with a new spinning project, this time again some baby alpaka
you see a little fluff pile of 50 gram :D
and the start of the spinning


The knitting goes slow, it wont be much to show each day now, as it takes a few hours for just 1 row
but i spent the morning at the doctors, and was able to knit quite a few squares

Yesterday was my Birthday


i took it really easy, nice food, nice wine
some chatting and hugging with my guy
some watching tv

and some knitting, not much, but i couldnt do without Smiley mit geƶffnetem Mund
i worked out, it takes me 6 minutes to make 1 square
the whole 2 meter lenght is made of 40 half squares, so the first row has 39 squares – just about 4 hours for it …. uff
and i will need 800 squares !
so working without break, 8 hours a day, it would take me 2 weeks
but – i want to enjoy it, and its perfect for enjoying, its a brainless knitting, goes really easy and smooth
so i dont rush myself, and have no clue when i will be finished

and some spinning, it just had to be Smiley mit geƶffnetem Mund
its the 3rd bobbin of my future angora 3 ply.
