This is a bit of a test post on the iPad which suddenly seems to be letting me type posts having not done so in the past. We have been without a PC for a while, which is why there has been a lack of posts here! A lot has been happening this year, good and not so good. Bad stuff is that I had to make the sensible decision to hand the allotment back after my wonky hip got worse, but the good news is that this has made me get back to yoga class which I am loving. We are also having a lot of stressful issues to deal with with our sons so yoga is of huge benefit to me in that respect too. At the moment it's all about the knitting, yoga and reading so I'm going to link this to Ginny's Yarn Along. http://www.gsheller.com/2012/09/yarn-along-94.html.
I just finished knitting the 'Hogwarts Express' shawl. I am really pleased with how this has turned out and as I have never done any cable knitting before, I feel like I've learnt something too.
I've now started on a sleeveless wrap thing. I loved the colours of this yarn when I saw it knitted as a cardigan in our local wool shop, but I'm not so sure now - seems a bit 'old lady' so far. I will see how it goes. I'm reading 'Engleby' by Sebastian Faulks. After a false start with the audio version from the library, I've now got a paper copy and am enjoying it so far.
