on winged feet. Seriously I have no idea where the time went, one minute it was Friday morning and then whoosh it was Monday.
I had arranged to spend the day with Chrissie at the wool shop. OMG it was a grand day, knitting, chatting, drinking tea, chatting about knitting to customers, drinking tea, demonstrating magic loop to a couple of customers, did I mention tea?
I also knitted away on my new cast on, a jumper in the round, I am totally winging this and making it up as I go. I will be calling it my Weasley jumper. That's because it will fit where it touches, it will be long and comfy with lots of wriggle room. I won't be putting my initial on the front though, too much like hard work.
I have decided on my Christmas Eve cast on, a pair of socks for me, I may have mentioned this before, I have some lovely hand dyed 4 ply that deserves to be knitted up. All I need now is a pattern, I will pull the folder and have a look through.
I saw a tutorial by Arne and Carlos a few days ago, promoting their new "Pairfect" Regia yarn. They put a short row heel in that looks so simple and smooth. I have the pattern for the Fish Lips Kiss Heel but I like the extra strength of the heel stitch flap and gusset construction. I am going to knit some bedsocks for a friend and may try a new heel out on them, after all they won't get any hard wear.
I will be shopping on Wednesday for milk, cream and fruit and veg, then it will be done till the following Wednesday. I will be picking Fran up from Neath station and can restock on the way home. I have eaten lots of Iffits over the past 5 days or so. The fridge and freezers are just about cleared of "leftovers dinners", it has led to some interesting combinations but there has been no waste.
I will not be doing much food shopping before the end of January apart from fresh produce and Ben's food. Once the Purple Sprouting Broccoli comes good I will be cooking it almost every day, I absolutely love it and the season is over before I reach satiation levels.
I am back in the wool shop tomorrow, and so looking forward to it. Our last knit and Natter for the year, we meet next time on the 3rd.
I think that it is time for a brew and a few more rounds of my jumper. I have enough things to photograph now, as long as I can get them loaded they will appear next time.
