Scavenger Hunt

Saturday, 30 July 2016


The first week of the summer holidays has been a good one for me.  The last week at school was chaotic and stressful and I'm glad it's finished.  

Miss and Master Clicky went to a Greek Island with my brother and his family, leaving Mr Clicky and me at home.  I have pottered about, had some late lie-ins and we've gone out and about a few times, to the cinema to see Star Trek Beyond ~ absolutely amazing.   They arrived back late last night, bronzed and with lots of washing.  Two people, I discovered don't produce much washing at all.  Four, lots.

My Afmaeli sweater has come on.  I got to the very exciting bit of joining the body and arms and working on the yolk.  I am still loving this yarn and pattern and I've made such good progress I've started the ribbing at the neck in the cream.  Unfortunately I've run out of yarn!  
 I did a quick order to Wool Warehouse and whilst waiting for it to come started sewing in the ends.  I'm giving you a sneaky peak at the back, not showing the front until the proper Ta-Dah! which shouldn't be that long because....

my new ball arrived in the post this morning.  It's a different dye lot but I'm not concerned.  It even came in a dinky Wool Warehouse organza bag, I've only had H U G E bags before. :-) 
 Me and Mr Clicky are off to France to work on our little house tomorrow.  That leaves my Midwinter Yarns Linus on the Line shawl being the perfect car knitting.  Nothing like long rows to eat up those miles and miles of French motorway.
That's me for now, in France we're preparing walls and hopefully painting them too, but experience has taught us no job is ever as quick as it should be.

Have a great week, I'll see you next weekend.

  1. I am very excited to see your multicolored fair isle knitting. I bet the yoke is pretty! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. What a fascinating glimpse of knitting.... Do you weave in all those ends or just let them felt themselves?

    Bon voyage et bonne peinture! (Really rusty college French.) :)

  3. Ooh - that's looking good - even viewed from the back of the work. Don't envy you sewing in the ends though ;-)

  4. Oh wow, I've been thinking (thinking only) about knitting one of those jumpers for ages but I'm too chicken to do that!!

  5. All I can say is this looks beautiful! All those ends though, wow it reminds me of my FairIsle jumper which I still have about 600 ends (no exaggeration!) to sew in! From your most recent post, it sounds like Framce went well! XxxX


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
Please leave a comment ~ I do appreciate them.
