|my knitting spot for the week|
One of the highlights of my holiday, was visiting a real yarn store, Jane's of Fishguard. I know - I lead a sheltered life. But there's more, I got to visit it without the kids or husband, who opted to stay playing footie on the beach. I've started my christmas knitting with the Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace, it' so lovely to touch but the going is pretty slow. I'm fairly new to lace knitting so it demands peace and quite which are in short supply around here
Tino has yet again asked for a hand knit!! A sweater with a fire engine on it. So whilst waiting for the yarn to arrive to make this, I cast on a Hitchhiker for myself. I'm using 4 mm needles, which is one size up from what the pattern suggests, but I just couldn't resist this wonderfully colorful yarn.

On my kindle, my new good friend, who'd of though it?, I recently bought You Can Heal Your Life. Only a few pages in, and despite thinking some of the ideas are a bit 'out there' for me, I think this is going to be one memorable read.
Linking up with Ginny for Yarn Along, what are your knitting and reading this week?
