I've been busy making plans and enjoying myself in the process. The Fair Isle leftovers cardigan will not be finished this month, but it will be completed next week. The Fair Isle part of the knitting is all done, there's just the neck band and button bands to be picked up and knitted. So not much more to do. But instead of stressing myself about that, I've distracted myself by picking colours to crochet squares to make into another bag, like the one I completed last year.
A lovely rainbow of colours to brighten any grey day. This bag is going to be a vibrant mix of all the colours. I'm using the same motif as last time, as it produces a lovely dense square. It's called Rosie Posie Grannies Square and it's by Sandra Paul. I've made a start and completed a square!
I've also cast on for a plain grey cardigan for myself using my Olivia pattern.
My Kate cardigan (below) is a favourite with Eve.
Whenever she's home, she borrows it from me, so she's asked for a cardigan of her own, using exactly the same colours. I've now also cast on for that.
But the biggest and most exciting planning I've been doing is for a trip to London to see Eve. By the time you read this I should be on the train down, knitting away.
I've got a few hours in London before Eve gets home from work, so I'm planning on walking from Euston to Eve's flat in Aldgate (about 3 miles) and taking in some of the sights on the way. With Google maps I've got a route worked out, with a scheduled stop for tea and cake on the way!
As for the rest of the weekend, well it will just be wonderful to see Eve and spend time with her, but I'm sure we can fit in a visit or two to the amazing markets down there.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and I look forward to telling you all about my trip when I get back.
