I needed space and time away from the house this morning. I have been in self enforced house arrest for months, apart from going out to work that is, I'm allowed out for that. This morning I built a little tunnel out to my car and escaped, yes it was short lived as I had to work in the afternoon but oh my it was glorious!! Not the weather of course, but I kind of like it that way. The wilder the better. There were a few fellow escapees making the most of it, dog walking, surfing and like me just gulping in the sea air and the view. My beautiful Cornwall rewarded me with a rainbow, it was saying hey Chickpea good to see you. Who needs a pot of gold when you have golden sands.
I am on the emotional rollercoaster of house selling still, it has brought a few tears and a lot of uncertainty but my feet are firmly on this path now so I have to see it though to the end. No offers yet but a steady stream of viewings and a couple of second viewings, we have not found that special place yet so no hurry.
Late at night when I can't sleep I have been watching a series called Outlander set in Scotland, I also caught a programme set during the Viking period called The Last Kingdom, anyway it is not really about the programmes but the knitted accessories......yes I know I'm a bit weird, looking at the knitting instead of following the story ......I wouldn't tell everyone that but I'm sure many of you out there will understand. There are the most beautiful shawls and wrist warmers, I would love to know who the amazing knitters were who designed and made them. Has anyone else seen them? It got me thinking, I have started on a cardigan for myself but I am such a slow knitter that it will take forever and I am losing heart already. I am using fine alpaca wool doubled up but it is still very fine so is growing very slowly. So I'm afraid I'm going to rip it out and make something else, any ideas for accessories anyone? Oh and the male leads in the programmes did catch my eye as well :)
Thank you for all your supportive comments, I know the blog has gone to pot lately and I haven't had a lot to share but that is my life at the moment, the good, the bad and the boring. I don't blog to get lots of followers, but I do appreciate those who have stuck with it, and to those who have unfollowed, your loss, I was about to enter my followers into a million pound draw (only joking) It's a bit like friends really, the true ones stick with you through thick and thin.
