In my continuing effort to catch you up on our hectic lives …
We have finally been back on the motorcycle! This took a little more effort than usual as we had to get her out of winter storage first, then we took her to the beach.
Those spots you see in the background of that shot is the air full of kite surfers. Would you like to know more?
As some of you might remember I was working on a scarf in hand painted alpaca. Being a luxury yarn, when I ran out of it, and still wanted more length to the scarf, I had to come up with a plan.
And plan I did! I got another alpaca yarn in a corresponding colourway, and some beads which would draw on the colours from the hand painted yarn. Then I delved into my stitch dictionaries because I wanted to make a feature of the ends and show off the beading. Would you like to know more?
Hi Everyone! Did you miss me? We have lots of adventures to catch up on next week, but until then let me catch you up on all the things I’ve been knitting!
First there was this hat which I made for Himself in a neat 2×2 rib to go with the scarf I’d made him earlier this year.
Now that the weather has finally turned, he’s wearing it all the time! Would you like to know more?
I have been working so hard at this hat! In later rows you can even spot where I evened up my tension! I was trying to get it finished before the cold really set in. So far I’m doing ok, the days are hovering around 10C at the moment. Not into single digits yet!
I was delayed in my work by a particularly nasty gash I inflicted on myself while washing up one night! (That’ll teach me to wash up!) But I’m back into it now! Would you like to know more?
Lots of things have been going on, but not much to write home about. We are grateful to have amazing and generous family who have been kind enough to purchase us some new outdoor furniture for our balcony.
Which we have put to good use while the weather is so wonderful by having breakfast for hours in comfort. Would you like to know more?
