In which I try not to melt in the heat, successfully spin cotton and weave a silk swatch for Level 3, avoid a measurement error that could have cost me marks, finish one sock and start the next, talk yarn bombing with Maureen Young of the Inglewood Neighbourhood Empowerment Team, and finish the outlining on the Tapestry. Thanks for listening!
