Saturday spinning update: Castlemilk Moorit

This week I’ve been working on a bag of Castlemilk Moorit that I got from Spirit Trail. It’s another breed that’s new to me, bred from a mixture of Manx Loaghtan, Shetland and Mouflon. I’m enjoying the spinning, but I’m having trouble finding enough time to finish it up.

I did find the time this week to experiment with using won ton wrappers to make dumplings. Generally I’ve been making the dough myself, but all that rolling is very time-consuming. Last week I folded the won ton squares in half to make triangles, but it didn’t seem right. This time I used an Ikea cup as a guide to cut off the corners and make proper dumplings.

The verdict? Delicious. And there are enough left over for lunch tomorrow. I toasted up the remaining corners of the wrappers and tossed them with a little cinnamon and sugar for a tasty snack.

There was more creativity in the house this week, as a Rainbow Loom arrived for ZoĆ©’s birthday. She dove into it immediately, with only a little bit of problem-solving required.

And then success! I think Sam is attempting to shine a spotlight on this wonderful bracelet.

By the end of the night she’d already made 20. And tomorrow I apparently have to go shopping for more supplies!
