Another week, another update on my Year of Projects work!
I've been plodding on again with my Plain and Simple Pullover, it's a slow process round and round and I have to keep reminding myself that at least I won't have to repeat the process as I am doing the back and front all at once....can't be bad!
I must start measuring carefully now, I think I will probably take the sizing off a jumper that fits me well.
There has been no other knitting this week as my evenings have been busy, which is the only time I sit to play.
Although not strictly a YOP piece, I am happily whizzing along with my Little Woollie stripe blanket.....it feels so nice to pick up the pace with a bit of crochet between the slow-plod sessions on my four-ply sweater.
The coming week is already shaping up to be a busy one, littlest starts back to school on Tuesday which will mean some car time for easily-put-downable-pick-upable knitting or crochet....maybe I'll start to think one-a-day again.
The weekend has been wonderful, with an impromptu meal out on Friday....what a surprise... I was just about to start cooking, and then my hubby says 'fancy going out instead?' I didn't need asking twice!
We had a lovely meal, a game of pool while we were waiting (I don't think I've played for over fifteen years) and a sit on the sea wall watching people going by afterwards. The kids were positively sparkling with excitement! Well....so was I to be honest!
Look at the setting sun picking out the rowing boat.
Yesterday was football (Big's team lost), sheep moving and sorting and then crabbing off the pontoon in our village (no pictures as I was too busy fielding children teetering on the edge and stopping Chester from eating the bacon-bait)
Today, a walk on a different path through
our my favourite woods.
It was a slow one, as there were plenty of blackberries to be foraged......the boys weren't the only ones hunting.
Have you ever seen a dog like it.....he's picky too, he carefully takes the black ones and leaves the red ones behind.
Anyway, hope that you have all had a good week whatever you've been up to....looking forward to reading all about it soon. Faithx
