KNITTING

 At the FBG Knitters group last night, everyone was knitting, except me.  I just went to yak!  πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜†

But I've decided to find a pattern for a beanie, and next time I go I'm gunna knit.  

ABOVE:  I really like the look of this one... only I'd leave the top 'open' for me ponytail!

Probably the hardest thing will be choosing what colour to make it ... or maybe I can make several in different colours?  Let's wait and see shall we?  😊

ABOVE:  This is where we hold our knitting group.  St Kilda Cafe and Bistro in Cambridge.  It's a really lovely place.


ABOVE:  They give us our own room for the meeting... which is really nice.  Most ladies order something to eat, either a bar snack or a dessert, I haven't yet though.  Maybe next time I will.

So... back to today.  I will get onto Pinterest to see if I can find a free beanie pattern.  If not, I'll check out the wool shop in town, they probably have one.

I anticipate being a bit busy this morning, so I probably won't be back to check in here till mid afternoon.  So until then.... have a lovely day. 😊


3.15 pm:  And Stew and I are finally home.

We were in court.  It's been a LONG 10 months battling for RIGHT to prevail.  And it has.  We got EXACTLY what we were after at the end of the day.  

Stew and I had a late, celebratory lunch afterwards.  And now we are home, feet up, relaxing.

Well... I've spent the remainder of today just chilling out, enjoying a chance to finally relax.

So did Stew. 

Our lunch was our main meal of the day, so we had ... a donut for dinner!  

Tomorrow we are buying some more, cos we owe a certain lawyer a few.

  21. Wow. Glad this legal mumbo jumbo has come to a close. I have no idea what happened - but I hope it works out for all involved. It is stressful having things like that hanging over your head, so you can relax now that it is settled.
