Last night the rain was beating so hard on the roof that I woke; got up to listen to the waves rolling over the rocks by the shore and the wind shaking the tree tops. This rainy Sunday has been about good food, books and knitting.
As a child I read Enid Blyton's books of Famous Five and Secret Seven. My daughters have not read Enid Blyton but have enjoyed the Redwall Adventures of Brian Jacques. In all of those books quite a few words are used for tea and scones. We had scones while in England few years ago but the girls were so young then they do not remember eating them then. Today we got out the good tea china, brewed strong tea and baked scones and ate them with whipped cream and marmalade and butter.
Later on the photo shoot by the lake was chilly, the sock model was freezing and I had to be very quick.
These knee high socks were made of 170 grams of St. Ives (80 % wool 20 % nylon - four plied) sock yarn. Needle size was 2 mm and pattern my own.
I hope to be able to finish the candlelight shawl next week. It has been on the needles for so long now that it has to be the next.
