TWO YEARS (and a bit…)!

Springtime Rambling

Hi friends! How was your weekend?

We had glorious weather yesterday — the result of a much talked about heatwave (initially, I was skeptical, but it did get warm … even hot!).  And, as luck would have it, we had plans to meet up with two good friends for a bit of a ramble.  Originally, we had our sights set on Ingleborough, but with weather so nice, we knew lots of people would have the same idea.  So we opted instead for a bit of walking among the fells in South Lakeland, outside the small village of Barbon.

A beautiful walk on a sunny day sounds perfect in almost any situation. But add to it that it’s spring, and the ewes were out with their lambs in the fields, and I was as pleased as could be.

Let the Sock Swapping Commence!

Hi friends, and happy Monday!

Phew, where did the weekend go?  I spent most of it working, so today I’m playing a bit of catch up today.  On my to do list?  Play with stash sock yarn and find some perfect treats for my swap partner for Kat at Felinity Knits‘ Sock Yarn Stash Swap!  I’m really excited to take part in my first swap!
