Here’s the yarn I plied yesterday. It’s one ply polwarth/silk, and one of polwarth/silk/shetland (from a batt).
It’s on my new oak niddy noddy that Mr M made for me. It’s a little tight to get the yarn off afterwards so I’ll have to wind less tightly next time.
I sowed a whole bunch of veggie seeds over easter and so far quite a few have come up.
Some courgettes, cucumbers, 4 types of tomatoes (plum, slicing, cherry and baby plum), lettuce and basil. I love the feeling of planting a seed that looks like a speck of dust, and it turns in to a beautiful productive plant.
I was also given some established strawberry plants by our neighbour. I put them in to our raised bed along with some herbs, and sowed more seeds in there (carrots and salads this time). It’s all looking a bit random at the moment, but I don’t really mind.
The window is there on purpose – it’s to stop the neighbours chickens from scratching the seed bed, and also to help give them a head start germinating.
