I’m afraid I’ve neglected my blog appallingly over the last couple of weeks! I promise to make it up to you this week though, and I’m going to give you a quick run down of what’s been happening now.

First off I’ve been buying loads of yarn. I have gorgeous photos for you, but I forgot to upload them on my blog before work. I’ll be blogging about them later this week though. They’re all gorgeous and I’m so excited to work with them!

Last week we took a short holiday in Edinburgh. My husband had his last exam on Monday and in the evening we headed down to the capital. We had a great time, although we were pretty busy!  On Tuesday we went to Blair Drummond Safari Park over at Stirling which was a lot of fun. We were really lucky that the sun was out and all the animals came out to sunbathe! We also went to Ikea, and although we didn’t get what we went in for (a spice rack) I did find the perfect knitting lamp (this one: Not) for £11 and plenty of other stuff came home too! On Wednesday we went to Dynamic Earth which was a lot of fun and well worth a visit if you’re in the city.

Thursday we headed home, then on Friday we headed down to my parents to see my aunt and uncle who were visiting for a couple of nights, and on Saturday we helped out at the village gala which was also fun and was a gorgeous sunny day – just what was needed! Sunday turned out to be our only full day at home. Today is my husband’s first day at work, so hopefully everything will go smoothly for him. He’s excited and nervous about it but I think he’s more excited.

I’ve been getting plenty of knitting done too, and I have a finished shawl ready to unpin from my knitting mats as soon as I get home from work. I have another 7 shawls planned and I really excited about them. One in particular is a sequel to Storm Warning and potentially a KAL project. Check out my group for more info on that!
