Here's my Wee Peggy wheel.
I did mention a while ago that I was going to sell it, and that I would let you know - well, the time is now. So if you are at all interested, please get in touch, and I can tell you more. It is listed on eBay at the moment, with the auction due to finish on Sunday evening.
This is a nice little wheel - it is one of the originals, made in 1984 by J Rappard in New Zealand.
I shall be sorry to see it go - it has been my first wheel, after all - but one does have to move on.
I find myself, yet again, knitting something that I can neither show nor discuss. It is, of course, for Rowan, and it is, of course, rather gorgeous.
The knitting is very enjoyable - lovely yarn, beautiful colours, and an interesting stitch pattern. But this situation does not make for interesting blog posts. My deadline is the end of this month, but I shall be getting it finished as soon as I can.
In conclusion, I should just say that my rather prolonged silence here does not mean that anything is wrong - quite the contrary, in fact.
Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while will know that I have been dealing with a pain condition for a few years now, about which the least said the better, really. Over the last couple of months I've been getting used to a new combination of meds which has turned out to be really helpful, but has also turned out to have the side effects of making me rather absentminded and forgetful - and that's putting it mildly. Perhaps I should just say, rather spaced out. As you can perhaps imagine, this hasn't been conducive to coherent thinking or writing, or indeed very much writing at all really, hence the long silences.
Fortunately, these side effects seem to have been temporary, and I think I'm about back to normal now. However if you should notice me being rather more incoherent than usual, please feel free to blame it on the meds. ;)
