Just checking in
I've really enjoyed returning to my knitting. I popped into Twist in Woodbridge last week to just look and, guess what? I spent £13 I don't have on two balls of wool that just looked nice.
I had a lovely moment as I was wrestling my way out of the shop (toddler : buggy : red face). In the window was the shawl I made up for the Natural Dye Studio - the one that was featured in the Knitter - see below. Embarassingly I came over all flustered and emotional. I think the owner thought I was a bit confused and/or delusional.
Anyway, the wool is now being worked into my massive blanket. A replacement for the Sickie Blanket we had as children.
We have a very poorly toddler in the house - sleeping upright as I type.
It's just a cold, but my, what a cold.
She is now on Day Five. Days One and Two were grumpy and hot, Day Three was snotty and yesterday and today have been streaming, sneezing, glued hair, coughing, watery eyes and exhaustion.
In preparation for this period of sleeplessness, Dan and I had our family time-share last week - I was in Champneys for three heavenly days and he in Scotland for three drunken nights.
The hand-over of the pub is a week today.....
