Hi, sorry there was no nattering last week. Usual story- very busy indeed. Trips out, walks, hospital appointments (Mr E), gardening, talks on family history, local history and psychology, to say nothing of messing around with glue, getting side tracked with cross stitch and some sewing.
Time to draw breathe a little. Our best trip out was to Fountains Abbey.
This time we also made sure to visit Fountains Hall
It now houses a display about the Settlers’ Society, which was formed in the 1930s as a training camp for boys to teach them employable skills, not what Mr E said which was ” cheap labour “.
There has been some knitting, not a lot , but I can now reveal that the grey and very cuddly thing was not as Lynne so wickedly suggested a chest hair wig but was in fact the most cuddly and ludicrously big
I am not sure it even looks like a seal, but I checked and rechecked that I had followed the pattern correctly, it is huge, and cuddly. Not quite sure he is suitable for the newborn babe I was going to give him to. I may need to rethink that one.
As it is Go Wild month this June in the UK I decided to knit something from the book I received at Christmas.
I am knitting a swan which is considerably smaller than the seal. Imagine a pile of white indeterminate shapes if you will which is what it looks like at the moment. I may even complete this by next week if I don’t distract myself with a hundred other things.
Thought you might like to see my last cardigan with dress on Little Miss F ( picture by her Mum)
A tad big !! Her comment was that her Nana was good at dress buying! I shall bathe in that compliment at least.
So what is everyone up to this weekend, you know we love to read all about plans. I have another big adventure lined up for tomorrow. I need good weather again! So excited. And if weather holds and I survive the big adventure I have a walk planned for Sunday which should be good.
Thanks for coming by, have a great weekend,
