A-frogging I will go. I got the join tangled and produced an inadvertent Moebius, so I frogged this and am starting again. I lost count of how many times I've cast this on now - I keep, well, losing count as I cast on and I find it very difficult to count stitches on a circ. This will be lovely eventually, honest. It's going to be a razor-shell cowl.
And thus it came to pass that as Our Hero was tidying up his beard/shaving the sides, I, His Wife said, 'Go on then, shave it off'. Our Hero perceived this as a dare and proceeded to, well, shave off the beard, leaving him clean-shaven for the first time this decade, this century and indeed this millennium. Hmm. This is the result.
I'm working on him to grow it back 'cos I like the beard, but he says he'll give being clean-shaven a try for a few weeks. Probably sensible given the warm, muggy weather at the moment.
Yum. My friend Bee had decided she had too much yarn/not enough time to knit it all so was selling off some 'licious and luscious yarns. So I bought a hank of Blue Sky Alpacas alpaca silk with which to make something lovely for me. Dunno what yet but it'll be lovely when it's done :-D.
My card reader is defunct. I have about a squillion pictures on both cameras and I can't get them off the camera and onto the 'puter. The new camera does have a cable to do it directly but the computer doesn't seem to like it and it runs the camera battery down in no time which is a nuisance. So the frustration continues.
The kids' great-great-aunt and -uncle were up from the depths of Englandshire, so there was a big family get-together at my brother-in-law's house. It was a lovely day so much of the afternoon was spent in the garden.
This is Miss Mouse objecting to having slimey hands after having an ice-lolly.
The Boy and his cousin making 'bzzzhhhh-bzzhhh' noises.
I love this picture, even though it's a bit blurry - the Boy was so happy just running around, oblivious of anyone else.
It was the Boy's school's Fun Day today. Miss Mouse rode what she calls 'a pony-horse'. Apparently it was 'purple'. I think she's referring to the harness etc. My beloved took this picture as I was manning a stall.
'My' stall was the tuckshop - a nice day so we did a roaring trade in drinks! My two were among the first customers. I did take this picture.
The new oilcloth tablecloth I'd ordered arrived, so I had to do some tidying. And after 6 months lying on top of the tumble-dryer the pinboard finally went up - and I only blistered my finger a little bit screwing in the hooks..
Once upon a time my friend Bee told me about 'project 365' in which you take a photo a day for a year. I wasn't that disciplined about it and it took me one year and 3 months to reach Day 365, but it quickly became a habit of sorts and also a record of my year. So I've overrun but I continue with it anyway!
