Grey Skies & Spinning

We've had a few days of grey skies and drizzle, but it is making everything lush and green and I am adoring the grey/new green combination.
 Over the weekend in between our first outing this year in the caravan, we popped over to the Fort Frederick Market Fair - which I love and look forward to every year now.   At which I purchased this snugly soft stuff.
 'Cos I thought I'd drive myself batty having a go with this....
A lovely lady at the fair was so generous as to give me a my own personal mini training session.  For which I will be forever grateful.
 It's tricky and patience testing, especially since we have a new furry addition to our family, but I think with time and perhaps a stiff drink it will be very rewarding. 
 So far I squeaked out the tiniest ball of homemade wool and knitting up a few tiny stitches. 
It is ever so soft and snugly  just a shame it isn't a wee bit bigger!  I know with time and practice it will only get better and it is certainly way easier than I thought it would be!
I just need to remember to lock up a certain fur ball which might make things a wee bit easier.

Have you tried spinning? I'd love to hear how it went.

Sorry I've been gone so long. I've been preoccupied enjoying the arrival of spring....

....at last.
We stayed outside today till long after the moon rose high in the sky and enjoyed every second of it.

I hope Spring is with you too.
It surely is a glorious time of the year.

P.S. Yes that's the moon rising up between the trees.  The camera couldn't quite capture that glorious spring green of little new leaves sprouting on the trees.
