Here are a couple of happy scenes from the weekend.
The eleven-year-old is really into food- it's a serious pursuit for him. (Eating, that is.) So I'm trying to do cooking with him as often as we can. We spent a cosy morning making scones and biscuits and I think he can make them by himself next time. He was pretty proud of the result.
I'm knitting a cardigan, this one, which I chose because I had the yarn ready to go (from another project that never eventuated) and I like the garter stitch simple style. I might make the sleeves full-length though, if i have enough yarn. I've had this cardy on my 'would-love-to-knit' list since I first saw Amanda's version a few years ago. Isn't that colour beautiful on her?
Feel like a virtual trip to New Zealand? Here's a beautiful song + video for your Monday: A Break in the Weather by David Kilgour and the Heavy Eights.
