Well hello! Sorry to have missed you last week. I had been away for the weekend and got home fairly late on Sunday evening. Needless to say, 'bloggy stuff' is a no-go area at the moment, as all the end of year reporting and transfer info needs to be completed at scholl, so very, very busy.
The sun was shining this morning, so we headed for the coast. I love spur of the moment decicions for a day out. We had a really lovely day, with fish and chips in Aldeburgh, afternoon tea at Snape Maltings and an ice-cream in Southwold. A relaxing way to spend a day!
There is very little 'woolly goodness' to report. I really do promise to do better this week. I have made a little headway with 'Almost Ovals' and my socks, but not enough to merit a photo.
However, I do have a very lovely BNKC swap parcel to show you, from my dear swap partner Katherine, in the U.S.
I received two beautiful skeins of sock yarn. A gorgeous skein of 'tosh sock' in the colourway, 'midnight in Manhattan' thought up by the owner of the store it was bought from, 'The Yarn Company' in NYC. We swapped a Knitspot pattern too. I received Hayrick Socks and once I have cleared a few other WIPs, I shall be forging ahead with them. The other skein is a pretty mint green merino by Hazel Knits. This skein is also destined to become a pair of socks, when there are 40 hours in a day!!!! Also included were other yummy goodies; some delicious tea, soem gorgeously fruity wipes and a very clever little pair of fold-up scissors. Oscar was included too, of course. He received a treat ball and some blueberry treats, along with a doggy smoothie, which is waiting in the freezer for a suitably hot day. Weren't we lucky! I have really enjoyed getting to know Katharine and we have already agreed to do another swap in the Autumn.
Before, I forget, I must show you some photos I took last weekend, whilst looking after little Sophie. She managed to find the most humoungous puddle ever.
No, it didn't all end in tears! She just picked herself up and continued the fun!
Have a good week and thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.
