We've been cooped up inside this week with snotty noses and chesty coughs. Ed came down with croup over the weekend so we haven't been up to much at all except for one tiny walk outside because the walls had most certainly started to close in on us, and theres only so many times you can watch Frozen in one week without poking your own eyes out. Thats me with poking your eyes out bit- Ed seems to love it!
I thought Id share some pictures I took a couple of weeks ago at our local Sunday market. The market is there every Sunday, rain, hail or shine and has been for as long as I can remember. There are food stalls, fruit and veggie stalls, a coffee van, the baked potato van and loads of bric-a-brac stalls. I usually head there with my dear friend (the one who finds me all the sweet op shop goodies), we have a coffee, a chat, a browse and grab some veggies. Our favourite bric-a-brac stall is tended to by an fellow that reminds us of Walter Matthau. He’s funny, always up for a chat and his stall-or I think its his friends stall- has the best stuff. There were a few old sewing machines this visit and a box set of Dawson’s Creek that almost came home with me but I resisted.
I cast on the Anastasia cardigan this week and have done a bit of work on it while we've been home- watching Frozen. The yarn is Quince & Co Ospray. Its a chunky-ish yarn and its knitting up pretty quickly. I keep knitting off gauge, which is weird because I did a gauge swatch and it was perfect. When my fingers are cold I tend to knit a bit looser so maybe thats the problem. Oh well, fingers crossed it turns out OK. Apart from the gauge changing Im really enjoying knitting this pattern. Does anyone else have this issue with their knitting gauge changing depending on if their hands are cold or not?
