I’m back at my desk this week and hoo boy howdy is there ever a lot of work to catch up on. Normally, this being a podcast week, I’d be totally freaked and worried that it won’t ever be done on time. This week, however, finds me unusually sanguine about the whole thing. There’s a very good reason for this and I am looking forward to sharing all the whys and wherefores in the podcast.
To sum up the last couple of weeks that are, truthfully, already becoming a blur, a photo montage of what’s occurring:
Tonia and I built a fence at the end of the garden, to keep Truman in.
Zach helped me clean the pond, and I finished rebuilding the rockery.
I didn’t quite manage to complete the garden tidy, transplant the day lilies, or make a place for a really big bag of really good dirt.
But the flowers are still gorgeous in the golden autumn light.
Look at it.
Just look at it.
Heather left for the Craftlit Knitty Tour. Tonia and I caught up with the tour, and met many delightful knitsibs in Cardiff.
Obligatory boozy pub photo, chosen because I look less boozy than either Heather or fellow podcaster, Marie Irshad. Even though I was probably more so.
With the tour we visited Dylan Thomas’ Boathouse in Laugharne, had lunch in Tenby, and visited the Wool Museum. Amy and Philly came home with us and stayed a while. Now we miss them.
I have a small case of post-vacation blues, but am finding solace in working out the details of a new sock pattern.
It looks like this.
Later today I’ll be knitting some Driving Miss Daisy fingerless gloves from this yarn, so I can take new pictures for the newly revised pattern, to be released very soon.
Though it has to be said, there is increasingly less space on my lap these days for knitting.
