All Change....again

I know.... it's been ages since I wrote in my blog.
There have been many happenings (and not happenings) since September.
Just a couple of weeks after collecting my spinning wheel; symptoms of frozen shoulder returned with avengence. My physiotherapist advised me to do as little crafting as possible. No spinning, weaving, knitting, felting. No computer work, no housework ( I can cope with the latter).
She doesn't seem to think it's freezing up this time; but just grinding and grumbling through overuse...probably all that stabbing with the needle felt, and rolling the wet felt, and spin, spin spinning !
It's all a bit of a 'b' really, especially as the seasonal craft shows season is upon us.

I managed to spin a few skeins of BFL / Silk ..... 

 And although I'm rather a reluctant knitter; I did conquer the art of knitting on a circular needle....

 ....This is the 'Meobius'. test swatch. One continuous ring with one twist. It has one edge and one side.
Mind boggling ! However, I still have the silver ring that I designed and made whilst at college; and had no idea at the time that it was a Meobius; which I could have sold several times over. The ring of infinity. No beginning, no end. 

Change is the watchword of Progression,
When we tire of well-worn ways, we seek for new.
This restless craving in the souls of men;
Spurs them to climb, and seek the mountain view.

(from 'The Year Outgrows the Spring' by Ella Wheeler Wilcox)


  1. Such words of wisdom Maggie! I like the look of your yarn.

  2. Cheers girlie. Yeh, it's quite a buzz knitting with yarn you've spun yourself. Hope you feeling better now. Your silver work is really fab x
