Odds and ends

Modelling the new scarf on a dog walk today

A busy week has come to an end… I spent yesterday teaching a statistics class, so poor Mr Snail got neglected and had to stay home and do chores (I couldn’t persuade him to come along and learn how to analyse simple comparative experiments using the t-test – I’ve no idea why!). But I was able to make up for it a little by finally being able to present him with his local, organic wool scarf. I’m rather pleased with the result and it’s done just in time for the weather to warm up.

It was the end of another project this week as the raffle that I organised to raise funds for Denmark Farm Conservation Centre finally came to an end and the draw was made on Thursday. A list of winners can be found here on the first blog post that I wrote today (now you know why this one is later than usual). Many thanks to all of you who bought tickets… I just wish you could all have won. I have now retired from my work as a trustee of Denmark Farm, and this was my last big contribution to their work for the time being.

So, what with one thing and another, I’ve not had time for many big creative projects and, instead, I have been enjoying making scrunchies from oddments of sock wool and other yarn ends. The collection is growing and will make a good display on a stall I think. I love making these because I don’t have a pattern – I just do whatever I feel like and so each one is unique.

The coming week is set to be less frantic, although Max is going to be groomed on Thursday and that can be a bit of an event (he’s not keen and I have to accompany him to deal with the temper tantrums). So, hopefully I will get to work on the water dragon destined for Ms Pauline. I might even manage to do some work on the long-neglected sofa covers. Plus, now that spring is in the air there are more seeds to plant… one of my all-time favourite occupations… happy days!
