I haven’t done much knitting this week, I have been watching the Olympics and it has not been something to knit during. (Well not for me.) However, I did manage to finish knitting the Lake Reed hat for my husband. I loved knitting this pattern, so I have ordered some yarn to knit myself one. (I’ll show them when they arrive…oops yes another skein popped in my online basket at the same time oops.)
I added some extra rows as his head is quite big and he likes a hat to cover his ears. The pattern was free on Ravelry and such a pleasure to knit.
I planned to cast on my 2nd Quick Sand cardigan on Saturday but I watched the full final of the rhythmic gymnastics (thanks to our Discovery+ free subscription), then we watched the first 5 episodes of Cruel Summer! That constantly changes year so it also wasn’t suitable to knit through. I envy all those other knitters who can knit at the cinema etc.
My SUP arrived on Tuesday and I went out with a friend one day and we went right round Loch Achility and yesterday my husband had his first go on it. Here’s a photo he took of me. Our dog was not too keen on me being on the water, she howled from the shoreline and even went in the water slightly…this from the dog who turns round if there is a puddle too big to walk round!
I apologise to my fellow bloggers, I am very behind reading blogs. I have been totally hooked watching the Olympics this year and at bedtime I am reading Midnight Sun by Stephenie Meyer (Twilight saga). I’m not sure how I missed this coming out at the time, but I am enjoying it as much as I did the original books. I think the Olympics finishes tomorrow so life will return to normal.
