In the grand tradition of knitting bloggers across the planet, may I present my latest sock project with scenic backdrop?
That's Loch Broom you can see beyond the trees.
FL and I are here on holiday. He has a stinking cold and as a result is thoroughly grumpy, but Hero and I are having a lovely time revisiting old haunts and finding new patches of heather to sniff.
There was a mix up with our holiday cottage booking, so we spent the first night at an unexpected house with the beautiful balcony you see in the first picture.
I could happily have stayed there, if only for the well-stocked bookshelves with plenty of old favourites to browse through. There was a whole row of vegetarian cookbooks, and a full range of spices in the kitchen cupboard: my kind of house!
Today we moved over to our "own" holiday home. We've stayed here before and it has everything we need. I have spent the afternoon knitting my sock and letting the dog set the pace on the hills. FL has had a sleep.
P.S. Don't forget - you have til Friday to enter the Pattern Pyramid giveaway!
