If you look closely you'll see that I'm wearing another hand knit, a Kate Davis design, Owls, they just need eyes adding so at the minute they are asleep!
On my needles is a knitted bunny for a friend's baby girl and then after that I will cast on a birthday crown for another friend. Dave's mum has also asked for an Aestlight shawl in similar colours to mine, so I think I can happily say that my needles will be busy for some time. As for reading I am plodding my way through Understanding Exposure 3rd Edition it is proving to be a very easy and informative read.
It was Grandad H's birthday yesterday so they came to spend a day with us and share a tea time birthday treat, as well as bring other useful items from Uncle Bernard's house. This lovely man was a serious hoarder and the house clearing will take several more weeks to complete, but so many people have benefited from his tendencies that the positives out way the negative. One of the treasured items from today's visit was a set of dish ware from Aunty Monica (UB and Grandad's sister) to her mum and dad:
Aunty Monica lived in the states for several years and we think these beautiful dishes were from that time.
