WIP Weds: Ravellenic Games continue, Handspun Heptathlon

Hello, nice to see you again! Come in sit down, have a virtual cup of tea, and we’ll get caught up :0)

Saturday, Beth and I went down to the Darlington Provincial park on Lake Ontario. We demonstrated Handspinning for Pioneer day. I don’t remember such a hot and humid day as this down by the lake. No we don’t wear costumes while doing these demos, too hot! We do this event every year. It is amazing that the park was so full of picnicing families on summer weekends. Almost all were new arrivals in Canada. I think there is something to be learned from this!

The local fair is coming up so I have to get on the stick with my handspun and knit project. As the games are on till the end of the week, I thought why not.

I bought this lovely stuff at a “The Gathering” spin-in at Port Hope, Ontario.

Seawool: 30% seacell 70% superwash merino 4oz $16.00 Cdn

Seawool by Dyeing for colour fibre Works

Singles Spun on my Lendrum, will be 2 ply laceweight when finished

Very nice stuff to spin! (not true colour in this photo)

I am still working on the new shawl design for the Fall.

It’s my tote around project.

If you would like to do a test knit please let me know in comments and I will e-you the pattern.

Progress with “Harley” my Gio-bike

First driving lesson on “Harley” yesterday. School parking lot end of our street, left turn, ok, right turn, rusty. Stopping where I want, this is a bit of a challenge…
Only real problem, drove two blocks to our house and couldn’t get it onto fork stand. I almost killed myself trying, lol. Kick stand only works on very level surface, not like our driveway.
Said to DH, I’ll meet ya at the coffee shop so you can park the bike ;0)
