I didn't get as much knitting done as I had planned but I did manage to finish my Taproot mitts,
make quite a bit of progress on my Secret Santa, and spend "HOW MUCH!" (Richard and my father) money in a wool shop! I treated myself to some delicious Noro yarn to make another Shalom, but this time one that actually fits. I am at present exercising great self-restraint by not casting-on until all other projects are finished, let me tell you, it's not easy!
I also picked up some colourful yarn for hot water bottle cosies for the boys.
And of all people, my father spotted a fantastic used needlecraft book at an indoor market, so I quickly snapped it up for a small donation to the charity that was running the book stall.
The rest of our time was spend visiting local attractions, my favorite was Castell Henllys village where the boys learnt, amongst other things, to grind wheat and make bread, the stone age way!
I especially enjoyed spending time with family and my best friend (of 30 years!-makes us sound so old) and her brood...

I don't think this pub has changed one bit from the days of my grandfathers youth! (well apart from the orange plastic juice bottle)
|sawdust on the floor to soak up spit and spills. Lovely!|
Linking up with Ginny for this weeks Yarn Along.
