Mmmmmmm!!! Delicious

The little one and I are en route to a family birthday by train! Exciting times! We have our magazines and newspapers and we’re waiting for our connection.

Looking at the live information from the train company it’s standing room only so I’m grateful we have seats booked. We’ve got felt tip pens, paper, colouring books at the ready and that’s just for me!!! Haha! The small one is in love with Moana at the moment and is pouring over the Moana magazine; and me?

I’m enjoying a Starbucks decaf flat white in my mug muffler prototype… I love the matt black finish. What do you think?

Measuring-The Many M’s of Makery

Yesterday I made a beret; people have been asking for them on the stall and I thought I’d have a go. I was too in the moment to write the pattern down as I knitted. That and I was waiting to busk when I started it; standing around waiting for more than more than half a dozen people to be in town! I get impatient and am liable to start to early if I don’t have knitting with me.  Later I was just enjoying the knitting and taking a break from an Aran Cape-u-chino I’m working on

So now is the business of measuring.  How much yarn, how many rows, what EXACTLY did I do and do I want to change anything?  How could it be better… you know that sort of stuff.  And this design is probably going to be in the ‘Home Spun’ range I’m working on – so it’ll probably need reworking in that yarn but this is a good start.

Thats all going to have to wait until later. This is the last weekend of half term and it’s going to be a lovely lazy day.  Lots of making probably involving glitter and pipe cleaners and maybe some baking and definitely some pumpkin carving.  Oh and the clocks change tonight, not that that’s going to make any difference to us as a family, but it definitely feels like winter.  We like winter…
