We spent our time in Sheffield with Grace.
A relaxing canal walk...
and a very refreshing pint in this atmospheric pub.
I also started knitting a new cardigan (no, I haven't finished the last one, but Fair Isle doesn't travel well).
Before arriving at Grace's, we dropped Eve off in Cambridge. Her college has a lovely pond frequented by ducks and moorhens. The babies are so cute.
And on the way home we stopped off at the new Hobbycraft store that has opened in Aintree. I bought a mound of yellow yarn and these lovely balls of cotton.
Back home now and I'm feeling suitably refreshed and full of inspiration for new projects. That cotton is calling to me so I'd better get my crochet hook and start making!
