The temperatures are low, there is snow in the South but my garden thinks the winter is over. I was so pleased to see this cheery yellow bloom brightening up the dreary outdoors.
On the knitting front I have almost completed the left front of the cardigan, so will then do another page or two of the Quaker Christmas. I seem to maintain momentum better with short bursts like .this, besides which there is a deadline on this cardigan so I must keep up speed. I am knitting in NZ merino 4 ply yarn which has an immense mileage per ball. Unaware of this I bought 15 balls and will only use around 8 for the current project. What to do with the remainder has been perplexing me for some time. I even read a couple of Elizabeth Zimmerman books to see if I could design my own?! However, my faithful English Womens weekly magazine had a pattern which will be perfect for what I want and will use this yarn so I am happy. A short sleeved cardigan is on my list of wardrobe planning for The Great UK Trip.
So all is well Chez Nous and the DBEM has just consulted her calendar/diary to tell me that she hasn't had a "good Saturday" since 17 June. So she is Very Happy.
