I am trying to get back into more regular blogging, although work and life in general continues to conspire against it.
We had a busy weekend.
Our hall has gone from insipid yellow to 'Entrance Hall Pink'. I didn't know the name of it when I picked the colour, but it's nice to know that Farrow & Ball agree with me on what colour a hall should be. Unfortunately it's still covered in horrible woodchip, but at least it's a better colour now.
After picking the colour, I left Toby to do the actual painting, seeing as he's about 100 times faster than I would be. I indulged in a little garden centre shopping.
My plans for summer planting schemes failed miserably this year, but I had good success with my tulips in the spring, so bought some different ones to play with this year. I went back today and got crocuses and a few other things to naturalise in the corners of the lawn and under the hedge.
I have been doing some knitting as well. I've had Salina on my to do list for ages now and decided to make a start while we were on holiday.
I had some Felted Tweed left from my Hourglass Sweater that turned out miles too big and had to be frogged. I had washed the yarn and reskeined it and put it away to wait for a project. This seemed like the right time to bring it out.
I'm knitting the body in the round and have just divided for the armholes. I've added 5cm to the length but plan to do the rest as written. Must hurry up and finish it so I can start the Tangled Yoke Cardigan...
