Hello there! Phew! After the whirlwind combination of the end of term and little Jessica's arrival, we are now relaxing in our regular cottage hideaway in north Yorkshire. As you can see, Spring is slowly beginning to appear up here and we have felt the sun's lukewarm rays; so life affirming after weeks of snow, ice and dull winter coldness.
We had quite an eventful trip up here on Friday, as Mr Snoops absentmindedly began to fill up the tank with unleaded rather than diesel. This led to a two hour delay in our journey, as we had to be taken by breakdown truck to a recovery depot for the tank to be drained!!! He was not the most popular!
The lengthy journey did give me time to complete 'Potter', the cute little romper for baby Jessica. It's from the Rowan 'Just Baby' book. I realised that if I didn't get a move on, it wouldn't fit her!! I used the suggested yarn; Rowan baby merino silk DK. It's very soft and great to knit with.
Hope she likes it!
From the same book, I've cast on 'Dahl', a pretty little girly sweater for Sophie, so she's not feeling left out. She is a great fan of pink in all it's varieties and I promised her I'd knit a PINK one!
The plan is to try to finish this before we arrive home on Friday. Watch this space to see if I succeed. I may find time to post a few finished (well almost) kitchen pics too.
