GREETINGS FROM NORTH YORKSHIRE!
Good evening! We are enjoying a peaceful and relaxing week here in North Yorkshire, but I thought I would just pop in to say 'hello', being as we had surprise visitors for the day today.
Little Sophie and her folks, including Scott, of course, came to see us. Oscar was VERY excited! Sophie is wearing the little jacket I made for her a while ago. It's had lots of wear!
We enjoyed a delicious pub Sunday lunch together and have then spent hours in the beautiful Dalby Forest. Needless to say, Mr Snoops and I are now in need of a relaxing evening at the cottage. So that's good news as it means I have time to talk to you, whilst he catches up on today's London Marathon goings on. The elder Miss Snoopydog's boyfriend and his sister successfully completed the course for the second year running. Alas the younger Miss Snoops was injured, but was able to defer her place for next year.
I packed a selection of knitting projects to bring up with me, but so far have managed very little knitting time. I have my 'Spriteling', with a few more rows completed but not enough to make it worth a showing this week, the 'Lilac Pool Socks' with no further progress and Sophie's little jacket with no more progress.
However, I have restarted the 'Cinder Block Socks' using a plain dye yarn. They do look so much better. I'm using some Wollmeise Sockenwolle 80/20 Twin in the colourway 'Sabrina'. The stitch definition is excellent and the pattern well accentuated.
That's about it on the knitting front. The weather has been so lovely, that we have been out and about for most of our stay, so far. Long may it continue, as I just love the warm Spring sunshine and new growth. I'll leave you with a few more shots of our stay, so far......
We're having a great time! Hope you have a good week too!
