We have a long weekend here in the UK and it is the 1st of May (and the start of Me Made May).
I have already sorted through my wardrobe and have a whole rail of clothes that I want to see if I am going to wear it and see if I need to alter or get rid of it. Anyway more about that potentially tomorrow!
I have done a fair bit of knitting these past two weeks.
I made great progress on my Soorik whilst at mum and dad's.
I am about at the waist, so now only a little to go before the colourwork part. I am knitting this in John Arbon Textiles Exmoor Zwartbles.
When we returned from m and d's I got a bit distracted! As we had had some work done in our bathroom I wanted to organise some of the bits in the bathroom. I looked at buying some baskets but instead opted for using stash and making some instead.
I did look at a free pattern to start with but then just made it up when I could see how you would do it - I knit a rectangle in garter stitch, then picked up stitches along each edge then went round and round in garter stitch until it reached the height I wanted. I used two yarns from stash held together to make a chunky weight.
Mecand Daniel went for a walk yesterday and saw lots of babies.
And a terrapin/turtle
We are going to go back today and see how they are all doing - these are just a short walk from our house which is amazing.
We also tried out our new pizza oven for a second time last night and this time was amazing itself. My husband (who isn't the greatest fan of pizzas) said it was the best he had ever had! High praise indeed!
