My Spinning Project

From this:
Beautiful Lincoln roving in natural colours.

To this:
I spun the roving, and Navajo plied it, to keep the colours separate.
It's over to the knitter now. I wonder how it will turn out?

My Fix

Apart from my family, one of the things I miss most about Ireland is Tayto Cheese 'n' Onion Crisps. There is nothing on the market here that even comes close!
I have a (very) few of these precious packs left....

New Toy

My latest acquisition is a Voigtländer Nokton 58mm f/1.4 manual focus lens. I have no idea how this compares to the Nikkor 50mm lenses, but I think I'm going to have a lot of fun playing with it. It should make a pretty good portrait lens for the DX format Nikon D200, with a field of view equivalent to an 86mm lens on a 35m camera.
