We seem to have been battered by nightly storms all week. Monday night our power went off for several hours (only a week since our last power cut). Our power came back on sometime in the middle of the night but the village remained out in the morning and on arrival at school we discovered it closed for the day, no power and no heat. Delight for the children and disaster for me! A day of cleaning, wrapping, shopping was replaced by a day of playdough, sticking, drawing and picking up toys, ah well.
My current knitting project is in keeping with the stormy weather but I have to say I much prefer the grey of this Yorkshire Tweed to the sky outside. Sadly this is the last of my Yorkshire Tweed stash but I think I will have to visit Ebay and remedy that. I do so love this yarn, 4ply this time but knitting up surprisingly quickly. The project is Salina, from Vintage Style. The pattern calls for Felted Tweed but somehow I got gauge?! The grey is flecked with creamy white which lifts is tones into something relaxing and calm.
I have plenty of other things to show you but all require photographs and the lack of light prohibits photographs for the moment.
