Colours and Scents
It seems a long time since I wrote on my blog, and I still have nothing completed. But I thought you might like to see a little section of my baby vest which I am knitting in a larger size. Isn't this wool absolutely lush! The colours really are as lovely as in the photos. I may have to knit myself something in this wool.
At the weekend we went to Kent to visit my mum. She lives in sheltered housing, and with a little bit of help from family and carers, is still (fiercely) independent. We had lunch out, and a shopping trip. As we left she once again gave me the cut lavender, picked from the communal gardens. Nobody else seems to want it. So I have spent the morning in a lovely scented haze in my living room removing it from the stems. I love the way that she has properly bagged it up. So now just to think of an interesting design for some lavender bags ...
