|02:48 pm - warning picspam ahead. Scotland and knitting|
was nice, in that I got to
- do a little shopping,
in ( Gretna )
and ( Moffat )
and ( Dumfries" )
- a little fresh air and exercise along the
( Solway Firth )
- helped MWNN track down the final resting place of
( some ancestors )
- and to meet some 'live' distant cousins from the
( Elliot clan )
- enjoyed a lot of rest and relaxation in a fabulous farm cottage where I finally finished the first tea cosy I’ve made in over 40 years.
It'sa ( BIG tea cosy )
It fits the big 6-mug teapot that always comes out at luchtimes Chez Hesadevil and is especially needed now that I've passed the cold from hell to MWNN. I am pleased with how this turned out and how easy it was to knit. I used a strand of each colour together throughout. I even remembered the burgundy colour perfectly when buying ribbon in Annan, having forgotten to take some yarn with me to the shop.
