Supervising & not looking

This weekend has been hectic. The girl has a better social life than me, mind you that’s not difficult.

Towards the end of the day she was playing outside with a friend. They’re still too young to be playing out near the road on their own and it was cold so I climbed into my trusty (not rusty) van and watched.

I’m working on some gorgeous soft storage pots in a super chunky merino / acrylic mix. It’s a great yarn, basically you’re knitting an i-cord and it’s really robust.

It was lovely to be knitting the Freyja pattern again. It’s got a wonderful rhythm to it. Also I can knit without looking, well for most of the time anyway. So I watched as they gathered up all sorts of stuff from the house, dumping it on the grass verge in some elaborate game. It was fascinating to watch but I didn’t want them to feel watched. Wouldn’t have happened if I’d been scrolling through my phone at the time….
