Stepping into cardigan design territory.. (And some holiday snaps)

This is a quick post, but I just wanted to say hi! I’ve been on holiday for the last week, and only now after 3 days back am I getting back into normal life!

This weekend I’m on the case working on my newest (and biggest) design – a lovely hooded cabled cardigan in Rowan Wool Cotton.

That isn’t the best picture, but as I say this is a quick post as I feel I should be spending more time working on it than taking photos!

In the meantime, here’s a snippet from our little road trip in Spain – Cantabria to Galicia and back 🙂

Sardines, yum!

Oh I do Like to Knit Beside the Seaside!

This week will be mostly spent knitting on the beach, perfect! We’ve handed our house over to our trust friend Nic for the week while we get some rays in Cornwall. And I don’t want to jinx anything but so far the weather is like summer!

This is the first post I’ve made by phone – we have no Internet in our little slate cottage, so while Chris is spending time in the surf I have been knitting, taking photos and exploring some lovely beaches!

This is the third beach I’ve sat on this week, watching life go by, dogs chasing frisbees and the tide come in. I’ve been knitting a lot, however I can’t show you any pictures as it’s for a gift and I know the recipient will be reading (hi mum!)

It’s been really lovely having a proper taste of summer! We managed to time our trip with the clocks going forward, so not only has the weather warmed us up but it’s now light til 8, finally 🙂

We had our first BBQ of the year on Monday – some local mackerel caught in the morning, potatoes we cooked in foil on the coals and some veggies. The bottle of wine we bought from the pub was so awful we made some sangria out of it, which washed the lot down a treat!

So I don’t really have so much to say today, I just thought I’d share these pictures. Knitting photos to follow soon!
