The Last Day of Summer
well that is it. The last day of the summer holidays is drawing to a close. We have spent it biking on the rec and then playing in the sunshine at the local park. I have to say we are very lucky as it has just been restored and even if it hadn't just look at those views.
We have a wonderful summer and I have had a very industrious last week of freedom. There has been knitting! Lillian is again on the needles.
A mystery booknits shawl has be cast on. The title of it is out of the darkness and I have again put my dyeing hat on.
Dyeing it slowing with a paintbrush at every stage. The first colour change is a little more stripey than I wanted but, I will hopefully be able to change that later. I do love the way the beads sparkle on the newly dyed yarn.
The other knitting has been this
The RowanTree Forum on Rav are designing our own blanket. This is my first block that I have designed for it I hope to have another up my sleeve plus of course all the other blocks that my friends have designed.
I hope you enjoy your first week back at school and I will see you next week.
