We had a lovely trip to Twist yesterday for knitting group. There weren't many of us so we sat upstairs around the table in the shop. I started off well, and only bought some felting needles and the new Vogue Knitting. Then I went for another fatal wander and tripped over a box full of lovely colourful skeins of hand dyed yarn from a local Wensleydale flock. They were packaged up with a little instruction card for a shawl, and a nice pin. Local produce and yarn all in one? Yes please!
The two skeins are a little different, so after the first few rows I decided to alternate 2 rows of one then 2 rows of the other to mix them in. Going well (and quickly) so far, although it's a bit squashed because I'm trying to keep 187 st on a normal needle.
The green at the bottom of my road is looking spectacular at the moment, as is a lot of Dundee, because all the daffodils are out in force. They're looking the wrong way to see their faces and the view of the Tay all in the same shot, but who can blame them for wanting to face south?
Here's some Soad Bread I've just made, using the Town Bakery recipe. Super quick.
And finally for today, look what we've got in the office! It's great! Bea was missing proper coffee so she bought an electric moka...
