English, you’ve gotta love it. Sometimes pronunciation can be tricky. You think it is one thing and it turns out to be something else.
How did you read the title? Wind with a short i as in a windy day or is it wind, with a long i, as in yarn winder.
Last week I had fun with some yarn winding, knitting, and reading. Towards the end of last week I started out with some lovely soft white merino wool by Cascade Yarns.
The first job was to wind it into a ball. Do you have a yarn winder? It makes a center pull ball of yarn in no time. I usually put the hank of wool around the arms of the rocking chair and wind from there.
The knitting pattern I’m doing is a mobius scarlet, found on Craftster. It’s knit on bamboo circular needles of 5.5 mm
I’ve also started another book in the Kate Shackleton series, Murder on a Summer’s Day. In this one Kate is asked to find a missing Indian maharaja. I’m not that far into he book yet but will be sure to share the review when I’m finished.
The wind, with a short i, is sending hundreds of leaves falling into the garden on a daily basis. The Autumn colours are gorgeous, but such a lot of work to gather up.
The night temperatures are dropping down to around 0 Celsius and we have had the odd bit of frost. Some areas in Ontario to the north of us have some some wet snow flurries already. I sure hope they don’t head down our way anytime soon.
