I'm sorry I missed you last weekend. We spent the weekend with Sophie and Jess, having paddling pool and park walks fun and didn't arrive home until late on Sunday evening. But, I've found a little breathing space to drop in today.
HOORAY! HOORAY! HOORAY! There are only four more sleeps until school is out for the summer. I CAN NOT WAIT! It feels as though this term has gone on and on and on for sooo long. It's not that I don't enjoy being a teacher, because I do. I LOVE it! It's just that there always has to be so much extra 'stuff' to be getting done, all the time. As soon as one list is ticked off, another has already been written. It's always worse towards the end of the summer term, as there are so many ends to tie up and information to be passed on. Still, we are almost there.
There has way too little knitting going on here of late. As soon as the hols begin that will be quickly rectified, have no fear. I have been doing a very little mindless blanket knitting most evenings, but not enough to make a big impression. As you can see, the blanket for my eldest daughter's baby, due at the beginning of 2014 is well under way. It's just over half way and I'm loving the colour mix. Hopefully, it will be suitable for a baby girl or boy, as I don't think we will know before the birth.
I'm off to Fibre East next Sunday with Josiekitten and I'm so looking forward to it. There hasn't been a friend and fibre related road trip for a while now, with no Knit Nation happening and not a great deal else happening in our little corner of the world. So, hold your breath and expect a fun-filled, fibre packed post next time ( probably not my usual Sunday, but Monday instead).
I'll leave you with one of Mr Snoops' gems from the allotment....... a pair of Siamese marrows! They tasted just great, stuffed with tomatoes, onion, garlic and celery and topped with cheesy breadcrumbs.
You could say we got two for the price of one :-)!
