Tomatoes were my top priority last week , no time even to share the little bit of knitting and reading I managed to squeeze in between kitchen and work. So here is the sweetest little Pixie hat I ever saw, all ready for the new little someone, which I did complete.
And for reading there was a book by a local author.
Mike Pannet was a policeman in this area, the places he writes about are accurate! But it has to be said he manages to instill a lot of drama into very little! Which is probably why we like living here in a low crime area. Thefts from farms and motoring offenses form the biggest part of his job , but it does portray life in Ryedale!
My Current knitting is
another little pink jacket- are you thinking pink? With three sons and two grandsons it would be so lovely if this grandchild due in September/ early October was female- she has a pink nursery waiting for her and a midwife who is 85% certain she is a she.. I still hear 15% boy and would be totally delighted with another little lad…but…pink thoughts!
Meantime of course late summer has become early autumn and the nights have a certain nip about them, the chimney needs sweeping before we need to light the wood stove. And this conjures up pictures of cups of tea before the fire and a GOOD BOOK to read.Saturday saw me in the library and oh do I think I did well.
A Ruth Rendell,which I have just started to be followed by the White Queen by Philippa Gregory- anyone else enjoy that TV programme?
And I borrowed this..
Who likes the Great British Bake off? I do. So was thrilled to find this book- bit annoyed when I got home to find not by Mary Baker- she writes a half page forward, but very very clear instructions and pictures- rather too many of children just playing..what’s that about? But clear recipes for some things I never made before.. will let you know how I get on.
And to round off my reading ,through the post came this..
Now I know I have lots of knitting projects still in the pipeline but one can’t have enough wool can one? And my favourite mail order firm has got some super new patterns and yarn. I’m wondering would my family think me odd if I requested knitting needles and patterns for my birthday next month?
