Admitting Defeat


Shopping Trolley, originally uploaded by lyndsey-jane.

I was getting sick and tired of having to wait for Karl to get home from work before being able to go grocery shopping, or even worse, having to go at the weekend. I have real difficulties carrying stuff. I have always been limited in my carrying (before the ME, my blood pressure stopped me from lifting heavy weights) but it has gotten worse. I can however pull/drag stuff so the perfect solution occurred to me.

This is my new toy. It is the Marketeer Paris shopping trolley (apparently voted no.1 shopping trolley by Good Housekeeping). I will be taking it out for a test drive later this afternoon. I’ll let you know how I get on.

I may not have been busy blogging but I have been busy spinning.

Purple/Pink BFL – handdyed by me. 2 ply (one variagated pink, turquoise, purple, other semi-solid purple) Fingering weight

Turquoise/Green BFL – handdyed by me. 2 ply fingering weight

The Dyeing Art Dazzling Duos Superwash merino in King of Hearts. 2ply fingering/sport weight

The Yarn Yard BFL in Aurora. 2ply light fingering/lace weight

I am really pleased with these yarns and can’t believe how quickly I’ve improved over a reasonable small amount of time.
