Work in progress
A is a yarn artist specialising in gloves. She showed us some of her finished work yesterday evening -- such beautiful workmanship. She creates a mixture of traditional patterns, many from Scotland and Yorkshire, and also creates her own, drawing inspiration from patterns in nature. The gloves are meticulous work, requiring much calculation for the design to work perfectly from wrist to fingertips. More details on her blog. In fact their house is so full of beautiful knitted items that I got an urge to take up knitting again -- nothing as complicated as this though.
Weather still horrible. We had breakfast and a wander round the garden, and then G and S chatted about their joint project before we set off for our next session of purgatory on British roads. But actually this was the easiest yet -- up to S's mum's via M62 and A1M. We timed it nicely, enabling us to stop at the Golden Lion in Osmotherley for a late lunch. I really like this pub, although I was disappointed they didn't have any of the best treacle tart in the world. Then it was less than half an hour to S's mum's.
We were joined later by S's sister R and husband H. Now we get some downtime after a hectic few days.
