A Summary into Winter

Yeah - my aim at posting once a week has rather fallen by the wayside.  Since coming back from Iceland, I had a couple of months of horrible stress.  It's levelled out a bit - but I suspect it'll be back soon.  

  • I spent a weekend with my sister (which will be a separate post, somewhen).

During the evening, people were sharing their knits, via social media.  This was my favourite:
