We’ve been away on holiday this week, and it’s been lovely. We had our first experience of Butlins and enjoyed all the activities on offer – swimming, shows, fun fair, archery and mini-Segway, as well as plentiful food and time together as a family away from electronic devices (as much as possible) and spending time playing board and card games and reading instead.
I was glad to have a knitting project with me and that hat has grown considerably, progressing from a rainbow spiral brim to mini stripes of glorious vivid rainbow flashes. And oh, how happy I was to be done with the teeny tiny 2×2 ribbing and switch up to stockinette on my preferred Knitpro interchangeables!
I’m in a hurry to get this done now, as I’ve just promised to make a baby blanket for a friend who’s due in April. Better get a move on!
Turns out, when you’re not out at rehearsals/shows every night and at work every day, you get time to do other things. Whodathunkit!?
It’s slooooow progress, cos these are teeny tiny 2×2 ribbing stitches on less than ideal 2.5mm fixed circular needles (can’t wait to switch up to my knitpro 3mm for the stockinette section), but it’s definitely growing.
I havent knit for months. Work has been crazy busy since November, first panto, and then stage managing a show. Life was kinda crazy busy before that as well. February at last grants me a little ‘me time’.
Cuddlebums had a sale on. Somehow I couldn’t resist and these two skeins of sparkle sock yarn fell through my door last week.
One of them is destined to be a hat – I’m currently trying to decide between sockhead slouch hat and Wurm.
Anyone got a preference or a recommendation?
Now I just have to find the time and energy to wind them into balls.
