Well, technically, on an estuary(ish) is fascinating. I looked out of my bedroom window this morning and Wales had disappeared again. We have several theories in this house as to why Wales disappears, ranging from UFOs to a Brigadoon scenario. But more interesting (this morning anyway) was that the tide was going out and so the water was quite obviously flowing from right to left. Later on in the day it will flow from left to right. This gives the feeling that although we are on dry land we are moving slowly as upon a large ship. Quite exciting really

No, really I slowed right down. To pretty much a stop - and I don't move fast at the best of times....
I slowed down to the point where I collapsed and got treated to a huge bout of spasms (not great!) so back to the Dr I went and Oh! Quell Surprise! my meds were too low.... (My fault, no one noticed, it happened so slowly) So 6 weeks on higher amounts to see if it makes any difference...
Well of course it has!
I have now to be patient enough to wait for my body to catch up with my brain which is already hatching patterns both weaving and spinning.
I should point out here that speed is a relative concept and what I am at the moment so impressed with, still didn't stop me being unable to work out how to use a knife this lunchtime, but is does mean that now I am aware and can ask for rescue! Everything is relative!

The views from the cafe are fantastic, right across the bay to Minehead. really rather splendid.

I fell off the wagon, I weakened, I bought sock yarn. An entire squooshy scrumptious heap of sock yarn. Or 7 pairs worth, to put it another way, which should last until March.... I'm not sure why, but whilst I am perfectly willing, if not thrilled to spin my own yarn, there is something about the instant spiffyness of self patterning yarn that pops into a category all of its own! Also, socks are relatively quick and provide the knitting equivalent of instant gratification (some would argue hats, others baby clothes, but for me it is socks!). So now I shall sit and gloat over them, trying to decide which ball to knit up first. Whilst finishing my current pair of socks. (Classic Sock Pattern by Nancy Bush in the most fabulously disturbing shades of purple which was a birthday gift from my friend Anita). I do have other knitting projects on the go, but a distinct inability to be monogamous at the moment.
I have also started weaving on the Mighty Wolf. The action is very different from the LeClec, but there is a good shed and it is smooth and easy to use. very pleased with the way it is behaving so far. Now If I could just remember all the things Freyalyn told me about my birthday yarn (which is the weft that I have been saving for ages for precisely the right project) I would be set today. Can't remember for toffee!
