3. EVENTS
– The Mini Spinalong is extended until Christmas. You can use #minispinalong on Instagram. There will be random drawings from now until Christmas, in the spirit of #operationsockdrawer hosted by the Knitmore Girls, from the hashtag on Instagram and the chat thread on Ravelry.

4. A BIT OF SEWING
I purchased some floral fabric at Toto to make a skirt for my daughter and a Flora Dress for me.

5. A BIT OF KNITTING

I received a lovely package from Sara’s Texture Crafts, with some Odd Sox yarn for my daughter and me in the Iris colourway, and gorgeous merino and silk noils batts as a prize for the #minispinalong.
