They are slightly different as I was 'playing'.. one was done on 4mm needles and doesn't have the stripe between the cuff and stripey pattern, and doesn't have a terribly attractive decrease at the top, the other was done on 4.5mm needles, does have the stripe between patterns and has a much better wick decrease.
I quite like them, well to be honest I gave them a test run last night, wearing them to Oxford (Mat was playing at the Holywell and it's a long walk in from where we park) in the bitter cold that decesended on West oxon.
I'll think about it whilst I get ready to have the delight that is little Jake, who's coming to stay with granny for the weekend so's his parents can party.
Oh and before I go
Guess who walked past the little newsagents in the village and saw...'for sale spinning wheel £10.00'. So, of course I phoned the number and am now the proud owner of a single treadle Ashford traveller(in full working order) for..£10.00...oh I must have been good in a previous life....I know I already have one but can you ever have too many spinning wheels??
