I love it, it is thick and warm and snuggly and not as heavy as you would think.
All the ends have been woven in, and these are the trimmings, very little waste and (I hope) enough left on the skeins to make a hat.
I am pleased with it and walked round the house wearing it until I was cooking.
My next woolly thing will be my Aran cardigan, it can wait until the morrow.
There were 2 of us for dinner today, and as I wanted something tasty and easy I pulled a Lidl brisket in smoky barbecue sauce out of the freezer. I served it with jacket potato, buttered savoy cabbage, cauliflower and swede and carrots cooked together, oh and some of my own sauce stirred in with the sachet contents. I cooked lots of veg as I fancy bubble and squeak tomorrow. There is plenty of the beef left so tomorrow is sorted.
It was an easy washup as well, so by the time I had cleared the draining board, wiped the tops down and whizzed round the floor I had lots of time to amble round with Ben. The rain has all but stopped and the temperature has risen.
I can happily ignore any amount of crafting mess while I am working on a project but my kitchen has to be "just so" before I sit down for the evening. I can think of little worse than facing dirty dishes first thing in the morning.
I have Kirsty recorded to watch, so I am off to make a brew.
