I think that I manage fairly well not to feel too sorry for myself – even though husband and children are still enjoying island life.
If I were to rate last week I would give the weather 7/10 skeins. I almost got burnt in the sun.
The temperature in the water was quite enjoyable – 20 degrees Celsius. So that´s 9/10 skeins.
My attempts to grow salad, dill and possibly some radishes (hard to tell in that wiltered state) were – as the kids would put it – an epic fail. 1/10 skeins.
Nope, I can honestly say that I have never ever considered giving my day job up to become a gardener.
But I can make pretty mean kanelbullar.
8/10 skeins – if I may say so myself.
I also tried my hand at knitting. I got fed up knitting the lace cowl (nearly 500 stitches in each round) in record time. So then I started on a new hat. Inspired by the folk costumes in Dala-Floda I picked red and green from my stash of Loopy Ewe Solids. It´s very nice to knit with.
I was happy with the border, but I didn´t think it suited the rest of the pattern.
So I ripped it and went back to the drawing board. 5/10 skeins.
And that was all that I had time to do last week.
This week I´m so busy meeting friends in the evenings that I have NO time to stay at home and tidy up the flat – which was my original plan. Shame isn´t it?
But if I have done my sums correctly the result of last week allows me to buy a total of 30 skeins.
