Guess what I got in the mail yesterday.
(Suppose I kind of gave it away with the post title, eh?)
Yep. I got Sophie’s new bobbins from Ron Antoine!
We are both so very pleased.
Here she is all reassembled with the small Kromski whorl and new bobbin.
She’s so much smoother and quieter now.
And also faster- I’ve got her on the 13:1 whorl, and things are going just spinningly.
In other news, I finally cooked up one of our Cinderella pumpkins from the garden-
and turned it into pie!
and sampled shortly thereafter.
This was a trial run on the “from-scratch” pie for Thanksgiving. (I’ve always used canned pumpkin before). And a mighty successful one at that!
I’ve also finally gotten back on track with The Man’s sweater. Sleeve #1 is about half done, and I think that I’ve finally got it right.
The knitting goal for this week is to finish both sleeves and develop a plan for the finishing….
Have a great Thanksgiving!
