The Letter C

I've been rushing around again...

Last week it was Cheltenham Stitch & Craft show - teaching patchwork knitting for three days

This week it is Cottenham - Textiles in Focus show. I'm going to be staying with Rosie at Cambridge.

I've also been knitting cables - Staghorn from A Fine Fleece.

And the only chocolate in the house is one of these (Rav link) it still needs its ends sewing in... made with two strands of orginal Colinette 4 ply in a muted brown colour....

I've also been spending a lot of time on the Charity Commission site some of my favourite documents are CC3, CC8, C35...

I've also been trying to keep an eye on calories - I really need to loose my extra pounds soon - less than a stone, if only stress and knitting were enough exercise to help :-)

And I've been drinking far too much coffee !!

Sorry there are no pictures, I will really try better next time (I think I've said that before !!)

One of the 'problems' of living where I do is that when it is snowy or icy you cant get out of the village easily.

This was taken last Friday - a day when we weren't meant to get any snow !! Very pretty it looked, but it is getting a bit boring now, planning when to go up the lanes with minimum slide factor...

Today the buses (what few there are) aren't running because there are too many cars stuck in ditches on the route and it is not safe to drive on sheet ice..

Yesterday I did mange to get out and ventured as far as Leominster.

We found a walk along the side of the railway with this amazing gate.

And with the house arrest of last week I have been knitting - I've finished the back of the aran, started the baby doll tunic (needed samples for Cheltenham show later in the week) and completed a tank top (or it will be once I sew in the ends)

Who knows I might actually manage to get some photos taken soon ;-)
