Another long weekend here in NZ and the plan is for lots of swimming and chilling. The kids are busy covering all their books ready to go back to school. I must be showing my age as I mentioned how we used to use old wallpaper to cover my books and was met with withering looks of utter contempt. How times have changed.
The urge to knit, indeed do anything very crafty seems to have gone for a short nap. I have plenty of yarn, plenty of patterns and while I am happy to spend hours browsing all the possible things I want to make when it comes to getting stuck in, I just don't feel the need. I guess crafting was a little bit of distraction therapy, or a way to hide from the situation that isn't necessary anymore.
But I haven't given up entirely. I have a lilac skirt on the go which is 3/4 finished and I picked up this book from the local library and immediately knew, as you do that I had to have the peg bag.
It's an absolute necessity. The fact that my pegs live in a basket permanently attached to the line is no deterrent.
I have used a wool blend that was sent to me by my magazine swap partner last year and I am loving how the colour combo is working out. But then again they are my favourite colours.
Do you like the tablecloth? It's another new addition to the household.
