Spinning weekend

I've been away a few days as it was our yearly national spinning weekend.
The weekend is held in a conference centre in the middle of the woods. We even heard the red deer at a distance as it was toward the end of the rutting season.
I did some spinning (Hampshire Down)
and knitting (commercial yarn, that I had dyed with cochineal some time ago)
The weather has been exceptional this last week, braking all records for this time of the year but it is getting back towards "normal for this time of year" weather now. It was lovely whilst it lasted.

The cats were very pleased to have me home again, following me everywhere the first day home!
