It is indeed the february “ski” holiday, two whole weeks of children home from school.
We are currently hiding out at a friends house, a few kilometres up “the hill”, it has a fab view over the city and is very calm and peaceful. This is in part due to the fact its a big sprawly kind of house and when the kids disappear, you can’t hear a thing, bliss. So I have been spinning, knitting and catching up with some british telly. Now considering I haven’t seen UK soaps since 2002, what on earth is going on in Emmerdale?
It is the house where the dogs think the sofa belongs to them, so yesterday I did spend quite a bit of time sandwiched between a Rhodesian Ridgeback and a Labrador, it was a bit chilly, so I think they were just trying to keep me warm. Of course as soon as I moved they just spread out a bit, cheeky dogs….
I finally started knitting Juno from Rowan 40, I bought the yarn for this, Rowan Scottish Tweed Aran in a lovely blue colour, on a shopping trip at Libertys with Yvonne. It is knitting up pretty fast, though the yarn is a bit hard on my hands, I am hoping it will be better when washed.
I finished spinning up my december fibre from Amy, it is very bright and will make some more very loud socks. No pics though. More soon……
