Cornwall is lush and green at the moment, which means we've had a lot of rain lately.
I finished my Noro Silk Garden design on Sunday. I've got to cast on for a new deadline design today but for the rest of yesterday, I decided to knit a bit more on my Kettle Yarn Co Pandora circular shawl. This is coming out to play between deadline projects at the moment and is progressing nicely after the big 'frogging incident of 2015'. I think this will be my Most Frogged Design ever. But I'm happy with it. I'm aiming to finish it on our trip to Cumbria and Scotland so I can get it published in July.
I managed to sit in the garden at lunch time yesterday. It was just warm enough to sit outside to knit for a bit. Our dog, Sam, is enjoying being outside in the sun too.
Yesterday afternoon, Simon, Vanessa and I headed down to Looe, which is the location of my autumn retreat, Mastering Lace Knitting. Don't forget to book your space!
We walked around the town and headed out to the Banjo Pier. Took lots of photos of the sea and of each other taking photos.
We had an ice cream by the beach. And yes there were people on the beach and even a few kids in the water. It wasn't that warm though.
We strolled back by the river, past the fish market. The hotel where the retreat is being held is directly opposite the fish market on the other side of the river.
It was a relaxing and fun weekend and I'm ready for a busy few weeks ahead. How was your weekend?
