I hope you are all well, and coping with the fast approaching Winter, it's really woollie warmer weather now.
Well, it's been a hectic few days here, what with getting our kitchen done and the concert, I'm tuckered out, but thankfully getting back to normal, whatever that may be, now. Our new cooker is being delivered tomorrow and I'm excited about that, not that I'm planning wonderful meals, I try to limit my cooking these days, but I just hated the old cooker which was in the house when we move here. The grill was in the oven and that was just pants.
Then there was the concert, which was brilliant, and well received, so a lot of hard work paid off, but thankfully, we won't be doing that piece again for a while. Gearing up now for our Carolthon in December and this time around the charity we are collecting for is the Children's Hospice, so I hope we do well for that. The Carolthon is a big sing throughout the day on Saturday 19th, and it's all Christmas Carols, easy peasy after the African Sanctus. So for all you Inverness folks, if you can come along to the Eastgate centre and you will here us sing. Of course if you want to come through, come across, or come up, you would be more than welcome.
Now for my colour work;
A pair of cosy socks for a friend, who now has them and getting some wear, with a few rows of colour work, my first time ever giving this a try and I have to say after having taken the cuff back about nine times I finally got the hang of it, I was knitting the selvage stitches into the pattern, silly me. So having been successful with these, I decided on this;
Arne & Carlos BaubleA free kit in a knitting magazine, made in the round, isn't it pretty, and so easy, I hope to make some more of them. The most difficult bit was stuffing it, and I can see I've not got it completely spherical.
I love these little projects, Alistair hinted about a Fair Isle jumper, fell on deaf ears though.
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my last card, very kind of you to take the time to visit me.
Time to put my feet up now, hope you're doing the same,
