I have learnt so much this year both with the growing of fruit and vegetable and in my knitting.
Both hubby and I still feel just a little bit giddy that we came 5th out of 154 plots for best kept plot. I still think it was a fluke and that the judges must have been blind.
My knitting has come along in leaps and bounds. I don’t knit as much in the spring and summer as the plot takes up my thinking time, maybe this year I will be able to fit a little more knitting in, although having two plots now, I very much doubt it.
I was stunned to read Knitted Bears account of her knitting this year. How on earth does she fit it all in? So I’ve done a quick count up of my knitting and it does add up.
20 (ish) pairs of socks
1 baby jacket
2 lizard ridge squares
several diamonds (for baby blanket)
1 pair of gloves
3 pairs of fetchings
1 jumper for hubby
1/2 a cardigan for me
1 hot water bottle cover
My family and I have had a few moments regarding health but a comment that I heard recently, which made me smile sums it up, “there is more right with us than wrong with us”.
Thats all I want to say really, we have just had a two hour walk and I’m going to sit in front of the coal fire that hubby has just made up for me.
