Tour De Fleece Day 11 (12.7.11)

'In The Sky' back on Tour!  I plied the 'Rainbow Scraps' with 'Old Man's Beard' and made 'Scrappy Beard'!  I had 110 winds around my Niddy Noddy and I think that is about 170 metres.  It weighs 89g.  I will plod on and make more.  I think I will knit a swatch and see how it felts, I think it would make a nice bag or felted slippers.  It wouldn't be everyone's 'cup of tea' but I like it!  I am delighted that bowl of foul water turned into something fairly pretty.
Lord only knows what he is playing at!  He thinks he looks cool!  I think much more of that Tom Foolery and I would be sewing trousers!  It's a good job his Mother loves him!
Pink Tie Number 2.  He had another great day working with Reception children, aged 4 and 5.  He was reading 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' and making paper airplanes.  He seems very happy and is getting quite a little 'Fan Club'.  One little kid made him a one winged paper plane, we are not sure how he managed that!  I am just delighted it is going well.  Tonight he asked me if I could buy a lollipop for every child in the school for his birthday on Friday.  That is probably a tall order!  I think I will be busy baking cookies on Thursday though to be shared in the Staff Room.


  1. Just look at that pretty hank of rainbow colored goodness! I think you've done a wonderful job turning the the Old Man's Beard into something you like :) Hopefully it works up well for you. Your son also seems to be doing pretty well for himself, kudos to him! Between all of your spinning, mothering, and baking, don't forget to take a moment (if even only a moment) for yourself and breathe!
    Best Wishes!

  2. I think your rainbow beard yarn is wonderful! Bravo! And I'm so happy that your son is having fun with his job! How brilliant he is to bring them treats, he'll be "in like Flynn" with them AND the staff! Awesome!
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. oooooo rainbow goodness! It's lush.
    Glad he's enjoying his work experience :) he looks happy. Rule number one of in my experience (when I was training) keep staff on side you never know when your going to need them! Share the baking love (remember it's not the kids who write your report!)

  4. More rainbows! Lovely.
    Glad Henry is still enjoying his 'job' and he looks very smart again.

  5. I think he looks cool, too! Sounds really to be something for him, working with kids, isn`t it?
    Love the yarn!

  6. Wow! Your rainbow yarn looks amazing :) Do you know what you wil be making with it yet?
    Your son looks "too cool for school" too - it's lovely that he is enjoying himself with all the little kiddies....I couldn't do it, so fair play to him!
