Me On Monday

It was a serious phone calls, driving long distances, fetching clean nightclothes kind of a weekend here, as Granny, my Mum, was taken into hospital on Thursday afternoon. I have very little fun to report.

I did do some knitting:


There is always knitting: calming and easy to carry; and, with self patterning yarn, there's always something to look forward to. This one pulls together such a nice collection of colours I'm thinking of ordering more to make an autumn hat. And after that maybe I'll dip into my new book Folk Socks by Nancy Bush, and try a few cables. This picture is a bit obscure on purpose, sorry: it's for a gift ..

So Deb, Helena, Eileen, Jane, Mary-Lou, Julia, Ladkyis, Louise, Krafty Karen, Ruth, Liz, Fiona, Sheena and Gail ll gave us a wave last Monday. I'm hoping all of you and all of you find a little something to look forward to this week. Have a good one.

Oh dear, that sounds like a worrying kind of weekend, I do hope she's ok and will be keeping you in my thoughts.
I do like the look of that wool - I almost feel inspired to pick up a pair of needles myself - as you suggest, it may soon be time for wooly hats!
