What I did this summer

Well... I am not blogging again. This past month was pretty hectic, not only from work point of you, but also socially. We had 3-5 afterwork things a week and I did make it to most of them. DB and me also travelled up north to visit the Peak district and Chatsworth (the house of Mr Darcy ;)). I was not really taken by it, but grounds are stunning, a must visit for everyone.

Knitting-vice I finished one pair of socks, started another pair, bought quite a bit of yarn, and selected my Ravelry-Olympic project. It's German Stockings by Cookie A. Something I long wanted to knit and something I know I will wear a lot because Anna socks have been worn extensively though winter.

I leave you with Kusha Kusha scarf pics ( did I tell you I LOVE it)
Enjoy the rest tof your knitting weekend ;)

Nice to see you come back! I started to worry :)
Scarf is interesting - would be nice sometimes to see it on you. I understand yarn is somewhat special?
Great that you are writing here again!!!

Lovely to hear from you again. My only visit to Chatsworth was over 30 years ago: the only things that impressed me (I was a teenager) were the shop and a carved fireplace. The house was just too dull.

Will you be coming along to Team Cambridge's Ravelympics launch (doesn't matter whether you're on Team Cambridge or not): we'll be at the Cambridge Blue, Gwydir St, from 5-7pm on Friday 8 August.

Bienvenida!! I love your kusha kusha, it really is such a great project. I envy your vacations too, Mr. Darcy's house!! (I'm a total Austen fan).
