Thank you for all your kind comments about Kiri. I am really happy with it (the perky colour really cheers you up) and glad you approve. I hope to get to the Knitting Meetup on Tuesday to show a few folk in person.
This week I've been finishing off the fingerless mittens for the Charity Sale (in aid of Childline) being organized over at K1 yarns. I knitted a pair in Rowan Kid Classic in Spruce, with a wee oddment of Lilac Ice used too. I enjoyed knitting them but I would observe that if I ever knitted them again I would go down a needle size for the rib, as common sense would dictate, and that I only used about two thirds or so of one 50g ball of Kid Classic. This first time around I followed the pattern provided to the letter. I hope the sale goes really well, but I won't be around to see it myself.
I wanted Kiri to have pride of place in the last post so I didn't say anything about my latest baking. In between posing on beaches and clearing out the stock of the Gem Shop (which has a great but tiny yarn department) I rustled up some honey and lemon cookies. They sound a bit medicinal, but they were yummy. They were from the same book again, Cookies Galore. There were far more than you can see in this picture but I wanted to leave some space to show my lovely Bavarian plate which belonged to m-i-l.
Thank you again for the comments and compliments. x K
