A lovely surprise






My husband surprised me with this beautiful bouquet of spring flowers yesterday. It was not my birthday or any other special occasion; he just got them to show how much he loves and appreciates me, so I was really touched.

Persuasion RAL


I belong to a group on Ravelry for fans of Jane Austen and the moderator of the group organises a read along from time to time, the current one being Persuasion. As I do not belong to an actual book club where one has the opportunity to discuss books with like minded people, I really enjoy being able to be part of an online discussion.

A bit of a catch up


I have not posted here for a while, but have been working steadily on the first of my Vanilla Latte socks and have also been working on my other WIP, my cabled sweater.
I have always tended to only buy yarn when I have a specific project in mind and so have never really had  much of a stash, but recently have bought some yarn for future projects, so am now starting to build a modest stash and will be keeping a record of it in my Ravelry notebook. I was out shopping this morning and while browsing in my LYS I found this denim blue 8ply DK yarn which I'll probably use to knit a couple of cabled tea cosies.
