|Shameless knitter in the workplace|
I woke to find that FL had lain my birthday card on the pillow beside me. It opened to reveal pop-up butterflies... or moths, we joked, now that I am old and moth-eaten!
And on reaching the breakfast table, still somewhat bleary-eyed, I found... a spinning wheel!
FL reckons "it works" but I don't yet know where he found it, (no doubt a story for another day) so it will require some basic checks to ensure it has all the necessary moving parts.
Wow! A tad overwhelming, but wow!
|Um yes, I always pose for selfies at lunchtime, sir!|
It is Lush by Tin Can Knits - and it fits perfectly.
I love the buttons she and her daughter chose :)
I wore it to work today.
The best thing about a handknitted gift is that the Other Knitter is more likely than me to weave in all her loose ends - there are no mini skeins left dangling in either sleeve, unlike all of my me-made sweaters / cardis! LOL
|Is that a spinning wheel I see before me?|
In the end, I drummed up 41 goals.
I fully achieved 16 of them.
I fully failed on 5 of them.
The rest were "partially implemented".
Not too bad!
The 5 failures were an odd mix.
Would you believe that I failed to Walk on the Beach?
|No - just a time machine|
That would also contribute to my fitness goals.
Yeah... those were failures too.
But there are lots of positives to report.
Best of all, I was True to Myself.
And... I Learned To Spin.
Which is just as well under the circumstances!
