Thank you all for your lovely comments on Sunday's post and it was so lovely to hear from some of you who haven't posted before. You still have until tomorrow if you wish to enter the draw.
The Easter break is upon us already and Day 2 sees the briefly controlled laundry raging out of control once more. Yesterday was a day filled with beautiful spring sunshine and the children spent all day outdoors, isn't it great when messy things like painting can be taken outside? I even took my seaming outside (yes, that's right, still seaming, keep managing to be distracted by other things....). Today is not so good but at least it isn't raining.
The image at the beginning of the post is my current project, the silk shrug from Erika Knight's Classic Knits. I am using Debbie Bliss Silk dk and a really strange colour choice for me, it is a sort of silvery shade but I like it, not sure what on earth I will wear it with, perhaps I will have to buy something.... I do like the colour though and while reading trashy magazines at the hairdressers (actually my main reason for going to the hairdressers is to read all the magazines that I am normally to embarassed to buy, having my roots done is just a pleasant bonus), I was pleased to see that metallic shades are the thing to wear this summer so my cardigan should be the height of fashion if not its wearer.
