It’s a cold grey Sunday of a Queen’s Birthday long weekend, the perfect day to sit on a couch and knit. I’m working on the back of my cardigan and am about to start shaping the arms. I always love it when things start to take shape. Also the back was beginning to be unweildy, with it’s 108 stitches of 10ply, so I’m definitely enjoying this change in direction.
- pottering around in the garden, threatening my plants with a bit of secateur action (I love dead-heading!)
- a slow cooked dinner, on the stove top for at least 2 hours before it’s ready – mmm, that lovely thick unctuous syrupy caramalised sauce with stringy meat falling off the bone and melting in your mouth …..
- setting the alarm for an early morning bit of Soccaroo support, all from the cosy cloud of nanna-rugs on the couch and a steaming hot chocolate
- pots of tea, with chocolate
Hope you are enjoying your long weekend with your favourite people and things around you.
