Holidays and running

I've been on annual leave this week and so managed to get some things done, including a few sewing be blogged soon.

But most excitingly today we did our first running session. We went and got trainers yesterday, the one hurdle we had to get over before we could start on our mission. Well its my mission really and Ben is kindly keeping me company. You see I want to run a marathon. Its one of those things that i think would be a real achievement - more of the mind than the body but I'm sure I'll be telling a different story once I'm complaining of all my aches and pains.

I'll let you know how we get on....


I've been meaning to upload my knitting projects for a while now but have only just got around to it. So I present the Phillie collection!

This one the beret from Kim Hargreaves collection. It took me a few attempts to figure out the instructions and even now i think its smaller than it's meant to be but I like it

The weird ballet wrap type thing below is another Kim Hargreaves design and yet again I had a few attempts and I'm still not sure about it. Its that chunky wool that makes it a bit,.. well..... chunky. As Ben said, its the wrong season for it, so its gonna stay in my wardrobe until winter and then we will have to wait and may be re-incarnated. Watch this space

The anarchic gloves, or peace gloves depending on which way you hold your hand - are owned by a lucky Bento. He says the fingers aren't quite long enough so I need to work on another pair..and this time make sure I have enough wool to finish them this time

I can't resist it....floras again

OK this one is growing on our balcony, it only just opened. The colour is amazing! I like it and the good news is there are plenty more which have yet to bloom
