Small Girl and I came back yesterday from a too short week in Cornwall with my family. The weather was a mix of chilly pouring rain and a couple of days of glorious sun so it felt like a proper holiday. I cast on and started the Felicity Light hat with Lang MilleColori sock yarn, and it’s knitting up perfectly (albeit on the third attempt). It nearly came to grief last night when my cat got completely tangled in the yarn and set off at speed, only stopping when she managed to snap the working yarn on a dining table leg. Bah. I’m now on the last 1.5inches of the brim bit before starting all the increase rounds, which means it’s probably time to cast on a new sock for those school holiday moments when counting stitches for increases is beyond me.
Does anyone ever dream about Ravelry? I woke up a couple of mornings ago from a highly organised and satisfying dream in which I had finally (finally) stashed all my full skeins onto Rav. So guess what I’m doing next?
To finish, here’s a couple of photos from the incredibly beautiful and inspiring Lost Gardens of Heligan, which we visited on one of the sunny days this week. I hope you’ve all had a good week and a restful weekend.
