Beads, wool and spinning

Last week I was ill, it was the horrid flu-y, chest infection thing that everyone else has had and I promised I would get. It wasn’t very nice at all, and even after a week on antibiotics, and two weeks of large doses of Vit C and eating as much garlic as possible with every meal (I haven’t really minded that) I still have a little bit of a chest infection.A few years ago I would have loved the idea of spending a week in bed watching Tele, but I got really bored. It did give me time to do some indoor crafts though, I’ve been meaning for a while to try making a seed-bead Christmas tree:

And I un-did all the knitting that I had done and started again, it looked to me like I had dropped a lot of stitches but I had only dropped one along the way.

I started on my first ‘round’ as well, using four double-pointed needles. I did think that I would try knitting a whole mini sock as practice but after I looked up how to knit a heel I gave up, as I had nowhere near enough stitches. I also got chance to carry on with my drop spindle.
