Life has been really busy over the last few weeks, I love being busy but alas I have not blogged but now that I am almost through all the orders and custom orders for my shop I have a chance to do some blogging and visit all your lovely blogs that I have been missing
Here is the finished spin, I plied it back on itself
We celebrated Michaelmas, sang songs, read stories and made swords and shields and dressed up as knights… Kye especialy loved this day and wearing his cape…(which he still wears).
Jen is also learning about Physics at the moment, here she is playing Do RE Me Far… with water in glasses and performing an accoustics experiment. She is trying the see if she can play the tune, Do Re Me Far… by varying the amounts of water in the glasses. She did get it right and this was a lot of fun. If a glass has a small amount of water in it, the sound is high when struck gently with a fork, if more liquid is added it will deepen or lower the sound coming off the struck glass
I have also finally opened my local South African online wool and knitted Waldorf inspired toy shop, it is called Pure Wool, besides my own handspun yarn, I stock yarn spun and also naturally dyed by many talented spinners and dyers around South Africa. If there is a yarn on this shop that you like and you live overseas, please email me to purchase, I do have Paypal avaliable for overseas buyers.

Have a great weekend everyone,
