These are finished and count as my 10th finish of the year. I have a tag above showing all items I have made.
I love the colours and they were a joy to knit, and quick as these are a smaller size than I normally knit. I am now pushing on with my jumper.
My wool order arrived, these are for the Leftie shawl, not normally colours I would choose, but they go well together, this won't be started for a while.
These just because I love the colours, plus they were on sale and took my order to a level for free delivery, I hate paying for delivery.
Hubby liked the colours in this yarn, I need two balls he is a shoe size 11/12, whilst I was sorting I found the leftovers from his last socks, and the heather will look good on the top, heel and toes.
These yarns were in my leftover bag, the plain green from hubbies socks and the mixed colour from my last pair. I weighted the mix colour yarn 40grms, so using the green for top, heel and toes, I have enough yarn for another pair of sock. Tell me how many pairs of socks does one person need, I think I might make some for Christmas gifts.
I have finished reading One good turn by Kate Atkinson, the story line is good, but the author gives each character loads of thoughts and memories, which often does not feel relevant, but the end was good, I never saw it coming, I will probaly not chose another of her books to read. I purchased the book below after reading about on Eileen's blog, it's her book club read.
I spent most of Wednesday in the garden, I painted my shed twice, and did some cutting back and sorting, we uncovered the wooden garden furniture. Hubby painted the top half of our bungalow white and the small garden wall, everywhere is looking good. Being outside in the sunshine is bliss, roll on summer.
Later fish and chips and a glass of red wine, perfect way to finish the day.
