I don't often post in the week, but I had to pop in and show you the yarn I'm plying at the moment. It's the one that Florence was looking suitably bored at last weekend! She showed a lot more interest once she spotted a bowl with beads in it. I think she thought they were cat treats!! No such luck! I love the bowl; my parents brought it back from a holiday in Switzerland in the 1950's or 60's I think.
Needless to say, I had a little feline assistance again. Flo was lucky that she didn't end up with a bead or two plied onto her whiskers!! It's slow work adding beads to yarn as you ply - I'm using a crochet hook to add them singly - but I managed to get into quite a good rhythm and the bobbin is starting to fill up. More progress pics at the weekend. xxx
