Hope you're all well.
Thanks for your good wishes for DD's overnighter in a tent in the gales!
She was less bothered by the wind than the two other girls who she shared a tent with. She was on the bottom of the slope and consequently they rolled onto her, so not the best night's sleep. They were then woken at 6.30am to do P.T. which didn't go down well! They were bridge building, raft making, making a fire etc, all for the Uniformed Services course she is doing at college.
Yesterday Mr CN, me and DS went to visit some old friends who live in Sandhurst. I volunteered to drive home but Mr CN drove there, so I got out some 12mm needles and the Plassard Zoom that my friend B sent me back in May after she visited the Plassard Factory Shop in France. (What a lovely friend I have!)
A chunky garter stitch scarf, what a great bit of in car knitting.
I carried on this morning whilst watching the Rugby World Cup, about the only thing I can knit whilst watching because I do tend to shout at the TV and can't concentrate on anything more.
Coming along nicely.
I've completed another square for the friendship blanket, I'm particularly pleased with this one.
Vogue Stitchionary 2 was well worth it!
You'll be pleased to know that I have sewed that button on my Autumn Cardi and it's blocking now so pictures next time.
I went to Gloucester on Friday to take some of my hand dyed yarn into Miju Wools and had a tootle around. I found myself in BHS (to use the loo!) and spotted this across the shop floor.
I was drawn in for a closer look.
I stood deliberating for some time.
Did we need a new lampshade for the bedroom?
Yes. Yes. Yes.
Not to everyone's taste I know but I LOVE IT.
Mr CN proclaimed it to be a 'Disco ball' ~ it is quite sparkly.
I can't quite believe I'm up to 59 followers now ~ how exciting ~ and thanks for all your lovely comments I really enjoy reading them.
Righto I'm off to read some blogs and then an evening of knitting.
Have a great week.
