Francesca has been over for the weekend but stayed in Cardigan this time, It was Kaitlyn's birthday party on Saturday and having Leo to look after meant that Cerys needed all the help she could get.
I drove over to Carmarthen station this morning to see her off home, it was a lovely drive. I went via Llandeilo and the A40, the sun was shining and there was very little traffic. In fact there were more cars milling around the village than there were on the A40.
I was a little early but had this to keep me occupied while I waited.
This is the No-Fuss Shade-loving shawl by Susan Ashcroft, a free pattern on Ravelry. The pattern gives direction for a chunky yarn but I am using Stylecraft Special Effects DK in Foxglove. I bought this to make another Shawl Linus but changed my mind. This will be a gift for Francesca, she has a walk from home to tube and then from tube to work, for the cold weather commuting.
I am using the little tennis playing bunny progress marker, as you can see I only managed a few rows whilst waiting.
Perhaps I should give it a try, not sure that I could stay in the bath for 5 minutes while it soaked in though.
Dinner will be a fridge bottom pasta sauce, with a pile of salad. It is far too nice to be cooking. I am now off to take my knitting out into the garden. Once I have made a brew of course.
I hope that you are all enjoying the bank holiday, whether out and about or chilling at home. To those who have to work, my commiserations, been there, done that.
