Washing gets dry super fast;
Makes my tomato plants grow; andGood weather for Glastonbury Festival
So, we didn't go to Glastonbury but we saw some of it on the telly - Florence & The Machine were my fave:-)The traffic past our house was at a standstill on Wednesday morning and the bus home from work was packed on Wednesday evening, lots of festy goers and a happy happy vibe, love it:-}
Anyway, it may be scorchio outside but our little cottage is nice and cool inside due to our three foot solid stone walls. So we have mostly been hiding from the heat. I have completed one of the edges of the Old Shell Shawl, here it is....
There are 29 "bumps" in total. Next I have to pick up and knit 270 stitches along the flat edge; that's one stitch for every 2 rows of the edging. I'll be off to You Tube to see if there are any top tips on how to do it neatly.
In my last post I completley forgot to tell you all about a beautiful piece of equipment I got recently. It's a yarn swift.....here it is
It's made by hand by Claire and Richard of Sunflower Swifts
I looked at quite a few swifts and didn't fancy any of them really plus I wanted one that was free standing as aposed to one that clamps to a table. This one folds up nice and neatly and is beatifully made out of solid wood and it smells lovely as well; thank you Claire.
