It's been a really lovely summer holiday, with good weather more often than not and plenty of trips, visits and visitors to keep us busy. As promised, here are a few shots from our time in Pickering and the surrounding area. We had beautiful weather and lots of little people to have fun with for the first week and then peace and quiet for the second. It was a lovely, lovely chunk of family time and time of relaxation and leisure. Priceless!
All too soon, the start of the new school year looms with a new class, a whole host of new challenges and exciting projects to resource and plan. I've made a point of sitting in the sun to knit this morning, as my head starts to be filled with 'school stuff'. I started a little cotton hooded card for Evie at the start of the summer, but have done very little on it. My aim is to complete it by next weekend!
It's a very simple knit, requiring no brain power which is just perfect! The colour is a much softer and lighter shade than my photo implies. I tried several times to get a better colour match but with no success. The back and one front are complete, so it's a possible time scale for completion.
