I’m going to be very British and start this blog by discussing the weather. It has been very wet and windy here in London. As a result we have been staying at home a lot recently. This should mean that I have lots time to knit but my daughter got the chicken pox at the start of the month. She had to stay away from school for one week and I spent a few days working from home. Most of her spots were on her back and she had a few on her face. Poor girl, but she is better now and I finally have some to catch up with my blog and knitting.
As promised here are some progress photos of my knitting. First photo is my Ishbel (designed by Ysolda Teague), I love this malabarigo yarn so much.
I can’t wait to finish the shawl and start wearing it.
Next is my Kat (Kim Hargreave’s design) which is a bit slow to knit and I find the yarn (Rowan Kid Classic) a bit itchy to knit with. Hmm…. I hope it won’t feel itchy on my head.
Now that my daughter is better, I managed to get some time to do some shopping at Bond Street. I promised my daughter that I’d get her some biscuits to have with her milk when she gets better, so this box of Swiss Chocolate Biscuits from Marks and Spencer are perfect. The box is beautifully designed and the biscuits are small which is a perfect excuse to have more than one.
I think it is time to put the kettle on and do some knitting now….
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
