Half Term Over

Hello All.

Half term in Gloucestershire has finished and it's wet and a bit miserable.  I haven't really done much, I did have plans to paint the living room, but that didn't happen.   This morning we took full advantage of BST finishing and spent the extra hour in bed with cups of tea.

Mr Clicky and me have had a trip over to France at the start of the week to work on La Petite Maison, you can read all about it here.  It was very tiring but we had lots of laughs and wine too.  We left DD at home and DS went to stay with my Mum and Dad.  A big thanks to them for having him and putting up with his incessant chatter.

I have got a few things finished. 
A One Row Lace Scarf ~ pattern here ~ made with a ball of King Cole Mirage which had been hanging around in the stash for a while.  I think it'll be a Christmas Pressie for someone.
  I've started the Olivia Jumper with the Woolyknits Aran that I got at Ally Pally.  The sleeves are an easy remembered pattern and I'm very much enjoying it.
I took my Abalone Waistcoat to knitting group yesterday, finished the collar and cast it off.  I had picked up 1 stitch for 1 row and the fronts were a bit wavy.  Romain assured me that if I gave it a good steam press it would sort out.  I tried that today and unfortunately it didn't work, so I've taken the collar off to knit it again.

That's about it from me I think, I'm not looking to going back to work but hey ho.

Bye for now, have fun...................Clicky Needles.
