Another glorious day, in fact a bit too glorious. I had to throw in the towel at 11 this morning and stayed in until around 4. A little weeding, planting and potting on took place and there will be watering again tonight.
I do have hose pipes in situ for both front and back but there are several plants that I prefer to give rainwater to. Everything in pots with ericaceous compost and the honeyberries, the soil here is quite acidic but every little helps.
I have finished the back of the cropped cardigan that I started at Knit and Natter, the yarn is 25% cotton and a dream to knit with. The sleeves will not go as fast, they are full length, I did wonder whether to shorten them but could not be faffing around working it all out.
I will try and take a photo of the pattern later, it is very shiny so may not work. I will take one of the yarn though.
I have set my strip sets to one side for a day or two, I am not feeling it and may chop them all down smaller
Ben has been going in and out of the house all day, sun bathing till he is almost cooked and then coming in to find a cool spot to snore in. Right now he is snoring on the other end of the sofa.
I had salad for dinner with a jacket potato stuffed with leek, mushrooms and pork in a sauce of blue brie and a little jellied stock to slacken it. Delicious, I must make it again, with whatever cold meat I happen to have. Or even without the meat and a few extra mushrooms, this was just leftovers.
Now I am going to drink my tea and get outside.
