An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

We'll be driving for three hours tomorrow to get to Potchefstroom to watch cricket, South Africa versus Bangladesh. It's a Test match, for those who know about cricket, scheduled to last for five days. Our plan is to watch for two days and then go to Bloemfontein to watch rugby, South Africa versus Australia. Even I can't see myself knitting at a rugby match, but I definitely need something to do while at the cricket ground. I've been pondering. It needs to be something simple - imagine how muddled my magic square could get! Yesterday I remembered that I promised my daughter Penny that I would try to replicate a knitted headband she sent me a photo of. That would be just the thing. Penny says it needs to be knitted in a thick yarn, so last night I spun a skein and a half of thick wool. It's possible I overdid the thickness - here's one skein in comparison with a skein from my last batch of spinning:
Anyway, I'll see how it goes and show you when I blog again on Monday.
