the weekend

Yesterday was about celebrating fruit at the Innocent Fate; listening to music in the sunshine while perfecting my ability to knit backwards.

entrelac

The yarn boucle. And verigated. And, er... 93% synthetic. My excuse? (a) I was on holiday. (b) It was on sale. (c) I knew it'd look amazing in entrelac. I'm going to have a lovely, super-soft, stupidly long scarf with pink-green-purple fairy-scales.

So far, today has been about sleeping, burning toast, enjoying the flowers my boyfriend surprised me with this week and filling in surveys on YouGov. But it is going to be about hoovering, cleaning the bathroom, finishing off the quilt and blocking the doubleknit scarves I've been doing for an old college-mate:

EDIT: both scarves are my own design, there are no patterns. I'll do proper FO posts about them when they're properly done and dusted.

Lovely, especially the double knit scarves.

Wasn't it insane yesterday? Obviously the good people at Innocent have a very different idea of "limited tickets" than I do!
