Hello my friends, how was your weekend, my husband and I had a great weekend at Clevedon, very relaxing not doing much. We had a look around the shops in Hill Street, there are some wonderful little gift shops, then at the top of the street we found a gorgeous Bistro called The Cellar which served Tapas and Champagne, two of my favourite things!!!!!!!!!!! After having a bite to eat, we dropped the bags off at the hotel and walked down to the seafront, it was sunny but cold so my Spate Mitts came in very handy. I love watching and listening to the waves crashing against the rocks, I could have stopped there all afternoon but Hubby was getting a bit restless so we made a move.
Week 5 of the Must Stash Halele'a KAL ended on Sunday and I have finished the Copy Cat stitch, picked up and knit the button band.
Week 6 is all about the sleeves, I've cast on the second sleeve, the stockinette section doesn't take long as it's only a small portion of the sleeve then you pick up and do more of the Copy Cat stitch, I think I'm going to do the 3/4 length but I might change my mind, I'll try it on first and see what it feels like.
I finished The Husbands Secret by Liane Moriarty, it was definitely a page turner, I'm not going to give too much away but it's quite sad and I didn't expect the ending. I keep thinking, I wonder what I would do if I found out this life changing secret but saying that I wouldn't have opened the letter so the story would have been totally different.
I started a new book, last night called The Railway Man by Eric Lomax, its a true story about Eric Lomax who was forced to work on the Burma-Siam Railway by the Japanese and tortured for making a crude radio. It's been made into a film staring Colin Firth, one of my favourite actors, I always like to read the book before seeing the film, what do you prefer to do? I always find that I enjoy the book more than the film. Check out Ginny's Yarn Along, this week.
I've finished the first sock of the Gansey Diamond By Wendy D. Johnson, it's a nice simple pattern, easy to knit whilst watching TV.
I'll cast on the second sock soon but this morning, I had my three year old niece and she asked if I'd knit her a blue cardigan, how could I say no!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I gave her the book Labour of Love by Vibe Ulrik Sondergaard, full of gorgeous little girl knits and she picked this one, the Zoe Fan Stitch Jacket. She's picked the yarn she wants so I'll cast that on tonight, because every time I see her, she'll ask if it's finished.
Check out Tami's blog for more WIP's this week.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great week.
