I won a prize.

I nearly fell off the sofa in shock this afternoon. I sat down to steal 30 minutes knitting and both dogs made a beeline for my lap. So plumped for a podcast instead, I was pleased to see that Ali from Little drops of Wonderful had put up a prize winners video. Ali ran the Strictly sock-a-long again last year, as I had a list of socks to knit I entered some of them in.
I have won a sock set from Foxy Yarns, it looks amazing and will make a pair for someone special.

I rested my back today, no more sorting and pressing, I just boxed everything that was done and shoved the rest to one side.
Tomorrow I want to work a bit more on the Karma Chameleon blocks, another 2 strips on each should have them nearly there. They are all pressed and trimmed ready to go.
It has been quiet here today, the SO is off on a job at the other end of the village and both dogs have been snoozing between their walks.
Dinner is on the go, a pasta sauce using the left over mushrooms from last nights roulade and lots of other veg.
BTW that was a wonderful meal, I will be making it again, the Budget Slimmers put lots of good recipes up on their channel.

Shopping tomorrow, I will need some more veg, fruit and some dairy, that will be all for at least a week. I really want to empty the chest freezer and run down the upright as far as possible.

I need to get the recycling bags and boxes out, our collection is on Friday and they are here anytime from 7 am.
