Monogamous Knitting

 I've been very monogamous with my knitting lately. I normally have several projects on the go because you need different knitting for different occasions but sometimes I get obsessed with a specific project and that happened this week. I do have other projects on the go but they're being ignored this week.

I was hoping to finish this pink blob before the weekend but even though I've been knitting like crazy, I don't think that'll happen. I may finish it by the end of the weekend, depending on what we do this weekend. This project is getting a big big for portable knitting now.

We're going to Creationfest next week. It's an annual week long Christian festival held in Cornwall. We're not going every day but we'll go for a lot of the sessions so I need some portable knitting. This weekend I need to cast on for a new design. I've got a yarn in mind. More later.

July was a busy month! Above is the photo I shared on Instagram as a July round up. Here are my July highlights

  • I had four designs published in two magazines including the cover of The Knitter. 
  • We had some fabulous family days including Vanessa's graduation, days out locally (the photo with the ponies was from a walk on the moors near where we live) and a trip to London and Southend on Sea with Vanessa.
  • I did lots of knitting of course and I released the Pimlico pattern - we've got a knitalong (KAL) going on in my Facebook group - Love of Lace Knitting (get 40% off the pattern if you join the group).

Last weekend we drove back up to Southend on Sea in Essex. It's a long drive from Cornwall and it was made worse by holiday traffic. The car was loaded up with all of Vanessa's stuff as she's moved up there for her first post-university job as a statistician. 

On Saturday before we headed home we walked down to the seafront (she lives 5 minutes walk away from Westcliffe seafront) and walked to the Southend Pier which is a mile long pier. We walked to the end of the pier but I've injured my leg somehow so I got the train back (yes there's a small train that runs the length of the pier).

August should be quieter than July. This week I've been trying to catch up on work and catch up with a couple of friends. Next week, we've got a week off so I'll be doing as little work as possible.

I do have one workshop coming up this month and that's for the St Aubin's Bay shawl at The Wool Merchant in Dartington, Devon. Contact the shop for more details if you're interested.

I haven't been in your site for many a year, unfortunately, I got back to your blog tonight - I do hope you have a wonderful time at your Christian festival - it 'sounds' like great fun and fellowship for all ages.
Many blessings to you and yours.
