4 down 1 more to go!

Thats right, im onto my last Giotto scarf! Boy am i bored with that pettern! Luckily the tedium was broken ever so slightly by one of the recipients deciding upon a different colour. Forgetful as ever i forgot to take a photo before that one went to it's new home.

Ive also been trying desperately to get River (Rowan magazine 38)finished as it's intended as a Christmas pressie for my closest friend. I thought she deserved something lacy! The yarn im using is a delicious laceweight mohair i bought from Jeni at Fyberspates ages ago. I think she has plans to make this yarn available in her shop and i can really recommend it! So soft! and the colours are so cheerful they knit up nicely - as you can see.

As with all knitted lace, this looks like a raggy mess right now but i just know it will be absolutely gorgeous when blocked. Cant wait to get it finished, just hope i make it in time. Well if all else fails it's her birthday in February.. im sure it'll be finished by then!

With the money my other half's parents are giving me to get myself something for Christmas ive been hunting ebay for a good bargain spinning wheel. Guess what! I bought one!
It's an Ashford Traditional and i won the auction at £61.00 including postage. The price is quite low as it doesnt seem to come with any extras like niddy noddy or lazy kate. They aren't too expensive though. Cant wait to play with it!
