Hello and happy Monday. Yay, we got through it! It has been so grey here in South Northamptonshire. It doesn't help that we live in a tiny cottage with thick walls and small windows - it's dark at the best of times. Today I have had all of the lamps on and candles burning constantly.
In all honesty, I have felt a bit pants today. I'm just getting over a nasty cold and feel very rundown and sluggish. I also have a bit of hormonal rage (TMI?). Nice combination. So, I took a bit of time out this morning to watch a couple of episodes of The Affair and do some easy knitting. Have you seen it? I didn't watch when it originally aired so I have two lovely seasons to binge on. I am loving it. Such a crazily stylish programme, I love Ruth Wilson's beachgirl wardrobe. It makes me dream of summer days in cotton dresses and tan leather sandals. It also makes me pine for a more simple life - Alison and Cole's beach house has that shabby but stylish thrown-together look. It is basically like watching a Toast catalogue brought to life. Heaven.
I have just finished a pair of gorgeous fair isle wristies but I didn't bother knitting a swatch and they are much too small. I am going to have a very cosy niece. I've also started knitting a pink Tess heartwarmer and will soon start the Martin Storey knitalong for Rowan. The wool should arrive from The Wool Sanctuary any day now. Yay!
Anyway, I didn't stop by to gripe about my day (although sympathy for my cold is always welcome), I wanted to let you know about the gorgeous whitestone pots that I have added to my shop. I planted mine up with hyacinths, snowdrops and lavender this weekend and they look so pretty and fresh in my conservatory. Have a little look when you get a mo.
Have a good week,
