We were planning to have a picnic at Greenwich Park on Sunday, but the weather was unpredictable, so we decided to go to the O2 (The Milenium Dome) instead. It was the first day of the Summer of Sport event and there were so many activities for my rascal, such as a sandpit, giant chess board, tennis, hopscotch etc. We also met some atheletes and the best part for me was when my rascal signed the giantic England Flag.
I’ve started the Airy Scarf from the Last Minute Knitted Gifts for my friend Gracie. Yes, I’m rubbish at keeping secrets, I’ve showed her the work in progress already. I used the Rowan Kid Silk Spray that I bought from John Lewis. I will then use the reminder of the yarn to knit one for myself. I found this yarn very sticky to knit with. What I mean is that it sticks to my hands and clothes. But its so lovely to feel and delicate. I’ll finish it in a few days Gracie if you are reading this.
I also found out why my husband scarve was taking so long….I used 4mm needles instead of 8mm (as stated in the book).
