Quick post!

My Summertime Tunic is now in hibernation due to a small problem with my ribbing only pulling in on the reverse, have no idea how I managed that. OTN now is Mazarine from Louisa Harding Swallowtails in Rowan Felted Tweed, I popped into the wool shop today to pick up a pattern for the Nautical Cotton and picked up 2 balls of the Felted Tweed. I got home and discovered that the cotton isn't DK weight after all, but realised that I could knit the cardigan in the Felted Tweed instead, need to call them tomorrow and reserve more yarn for it. I made coconut ice today or rather I tried to, when I added the coconut and beat it it went instantly dry, anyone got a different recipe? I used the one from the Dairy Cookbook.

TTFN, knitting to be done!

Let me try again!

I did start a post last night but I got about 3 words in and gave up, too many distractions and questions etc.

We start puppy classes with Alfie tomorrow night, this one is going to be hard work! We were blessed with Rosco, whilst he had he fair share of naughty moments he was for the most part good and easy to train (to be fair he pretty much trained himself). Alfie isn't exceptionally naughty he's just very busy and quick, he does sit for you but by the time you've gotten the biscuit out to reward him he's gone again. His new nickname is little shit because he has just got mischief written all over him and he knows he is adorable.

I had a lovely weekend, Saturday involved sitting outside in the sun (don't faint we did have some) drinking coffee and knitting and then a pleasant walk on Llanelli beach with the dogs, where they can run and play to their hearts content. Sunday involved housework, but we did manage to mend the washing machine, I didn't think I'd be so happy to hear that thing going in the evenings.

In knitting news the Summertime tunic is back on the needles, new ones at that, in the new blue yarn from Loop. I got myself some Emily in Blessed from Posh Yarn this week, my first 2 choices where gone, but I am excitedly awaiting this package of gorgeousness! I also managed
to score 2 bargains on ebay, the first being some Louisa Harding, Nautical Cotton in black and the second being some Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora in purple. I am quite fancying some Ophelia from Hipknits particulary in the Sunrise colour way, but first I need to actually knit one pair of socks before I buy anymore sock yarn!

I'm off to do a little more blog surfing and then a little more knitting of the tunic methinks

Fed Up!

It wont' stop raining, have ended up in damp clothes all weekend. Most of my knitting has now been frogged, today was the Jaywalkers and the wristwarmers I started last night. Oh well maybe tomorrow I will be in better spirits.
