I did produce a couple of pairs of socks while we were in Italy, patterns and yarns I've used before so you don't need to see them.
Since we returned I've made this little wrap top for Pam's latest grandchild who was born on Sunday 03 June, the day of the Jubilee celebrations on the River Thames. I suggested the little girl be called Pageant but apparently they have gone for Millie. I need to stitch it up but that's not my favourite part of knitting, I've been spoilt by socks, so I've started a little bolero top for the baby too.
After a coffee and scone each in the cafe, gorgeous industrial architecture, we achieved the main purpose of our visit, to buy some yarn to knit Mr FF a new jumper. I really like supporting New Lanark, their yarn is lovely, using British wool and traditional methods and its as economic for us to visit as pay postage plus we get a nice trip out.
Mr FF chose the graphite dk with 10% silk he had for his last jumper, said he wanted exactly the same plain round neck he had before, simple.Wouldn't it be nice to sit down of an evening in front of the fire and watch some gripping drama whilst knitting away but oh no, apparently we are not much more than half way through the two matches per night stage of the competition, that boy might have a long wait for his new jumper.
