So much for my resolution to update more regularly!
Not much knitting to show – the rockstar cardi has just reached the armhole shaping on the back so doesn’t merit a photo yet; I have also jumped rather late on to the bandwagon and started a pair of Jaywalkers in some Cherry Tree Hill supersock merino – this yarn is a joy to use, so soft and it knits up really evenly. The first sock is just past the heel so again, not much to show.
A belated Happy Mother’s Day to all you mums out there. I had a book from the girls – Sarah Waters’ “The Night Watch” which I had been reading in Waterstone’s recently but hadn’t quite got round to buying. I haven’t started it yet as I am still reading “Saturday” by Ian MacEwen.
My Mum received this:
along with a bouquet of flowers which were apparently beautiful (that’s the trouble with ordering flowers on-line or by Interflora, you never get to see exactly what you’ve sent). We also went out for Sunday Lunch, to a favourite place of mine called Birling Gap; unfortunately the weather was so foggy and miserable, as well as windy, that we were unable to go down to the beach afterwards

Three other items of news:
- I have to have an X-ray on my hip (it’s been painful for several months now and isn’t getting better on its own).
- I have had a picture accepted on to the V&A website! Check it out – yes, it’s the DACC (damned Aran chair cover).
- My brother and his partner have both started their own blogs – very different but worth a look – Michael’s and Sandy’s
