Knitting! (Actually it is more than the last week, but I watched too many Fast Show episodes when I was younger)
I resolve to sew and then I knit? I wish I knew how my brain works and then I could trick it into doing the things that need to be done but I just can't get the enthusiasm for( like the ironing, and decluttering). It's probably a reaction to 2 + horrible weeks. It started with me heading off on the SUnday to Manchester for 2 1/2 days for a training course - and I did not sleep well in the hotel, came back with a stinking cold, the youngest child developed a violent stomach bug, then a cold and a violent aversion to going back to school (which has continued post half term...). Meanwhile my husband developed a horrible cold which is finally going after 2 weeks (the first few days he was mostly zombie like under Child 3's dinosaur quilt on the sofa.) So knitting was probably a good thing as apparently it produces alpha brain waves similar to those produced by meditation ( I wonder what the readings were when the knitter discovered a mistake in their knitting near the start and they've nearly finished?) as well as being portable for train journeys.
Anyway I finished:
a sock (shamefully this has been languishing for approximatley 2 years. I'm knitting them for my Dad, and as one sock isn't much use, I have cast on the second - and it is now ground to a halt - probably for another 2 years). Please excuse the photo - I haven't blocked the sock (I'll just have to do it again a few years down the line when I finally finish the other one) and I discarded the idea of asking my husband to model a single sock....
my swimming scarf (so called because I only knit on it at the children's swimming lessons - I started it in January so not too long on the needles for this one) - in King Cole Riot Chunky.
and a hat for my daughter (she loves purple and wanted stripes, and fortunately I managed to snaffle some Debbie Bliss Luxury tweed aran in the C&H sale) - that one I only started a week ago so I'm quite pleased with progress. Just needs the last two pom poms and it's done. (I also need to take a photo in daylight as it is looking very brown in this one)
And now? Now I really am going to sew something - could be that half quilted tree skirt, but more likely another swoon block
