I finished Mary-Jane's Pinwheel Sweater this afternoon. I was almost glad to get it done. I am wanting to see what it looks like on Mary-Jane but each time I go near her with it, she gets cranky. I am trying to ignore the rising feeling that she doesn't like it and that I will probably never see her in it! I will have my way!
We have had another relaxing day. This morning we braved the wind and the rain and went to Aldi in Whitehaven. I had seen some yarn on their website that I thought might do for MJ. They have had this yarn in before. I got two balls of orange with white and flashed of pink. Granma got her some turquiose chunky yarn for me to make her something. I found a pattern called 'Pettite Panache' by Meghan Jones, via Ravelry. I am on the 4th row and am wondering if the yarn may not totally suit the pattern. I will persevere as it will look good anyway. Hopefully.
No baking today. I am getting over my mental apple block. I'm sure by the end of the week I should be cheerfully be able to tell you that I have been baking cupcakes again. I am still pondering on making some more chutney. If I do I know I shall have to get rid of some, as I will have vast surplus. I feel that I will probably end up making some anyway. Unless I distract myself with other things.
Not too busy a week coming up. Mary-Jane is going to back to Playgroup Tuesday morning. Sugarcraft on Tuesday evening, sugarcraft guild Wednesday evening. Fobbles has a get together on Thursday, I can't see me doing anything more than popping in, rather than staying. HK has an appointment Wednesday and Friday. Another Macmillan Coffee Morning Saturday, and maybe a table top sale Saturday afternoon. So where do I get the idea that this week is 'not too busy'?!
