I went to the fabric shop in the Quadrant ready for a 10:00 opening, it was 25 minutes before the chap toddled up to unlock.
I had a look round but there was a dismal array of cheap and not really cheerful stuff. None of the Christmas fabrics were really Christmassy and there were no yellows that I would want. In fact if somebody had said that I could have what I wanted as a freebie I would still have left empty handed.
Never mind, I will go off to Cross Hands later in the week, and there is always the net.
I have done a bit more knitting, the sleeves are now 10" long and I hope to do some more tonight.
I still have quite a bit of increasing to do and may have to buy some longer needles. I do like to knit both sleeves together, and the fronts as well, that way I am sure that the increases and decreases are consistent.
I am convinced that I do have some longer ones somewhere but will only find them if I buy some more.
I recorded Bedknobs and Broomsticks earlier, I have seen it before ages ago, I have watched some of it and realised how similar the music is to Mary Poppins, I will still enjoy it though.
I had to stop and get dinner started, just a fish pie with a topping of mashed cauliflower with green beans and sweetcorn. Later I want to make a couple of Banana Cakes, I will use Nigel's recipe and add dark chocolate and chopped pecan nuts, they are not both for me I hasten to add.
I went through the fridges today and gave them a clean, I will only want milk and some more fruit and veg at some point this week.
Tomorrow I intend to empty the tins and jars cupboard and tidy it up, I have just been pulling what I want out and then stuffing everything back willy nilly. Now of course, I can not see what is in there.
Oops, just noticed what the time is, back soon.
Right now I need to get into the kitchen and clear it up, dinner was delicious, I finished watching the film and enjoyed it.
Ben is giving me the "take me out woman" look so I better do as he says.
