Reading Round About a Pound a Week (excellent), How to Knit a Love Song (cheesy), a lot of stuff about 1930s architecture (geeky), The Knitter and lots of Ideal Home magazines (both from now and the 20s/30s)

Eating home made fajitas (best accompanied by board games), courgette muffins, toad in the hole and tons of purple sprouting brocolli from the garden.

Watching Brick by Brick (fascinating architectural history), New Girl (just ace), The Apprentice, and You’re Fired (is anyone else with sky+ amused that it reads in the listings as ‘The Apprentice: Yo’?)

Visiting Alice Kettle and Jules Findley’s exhibition Loss at Chichester Cathedral, Aspex Gallery in Portsmouth (for the art and for the tea and cake alike) and lots of 1930s houses.

Knitting a super Jaywalker sock (what a great pattern! I’m afraid its twin will have to wait though.) I’ve also cast on for a Deco cardigan in a lovely moss green, and am working on a hat.

Making lists and project plans. I’ve also mended a fair few shoes, bags and a catnip mouse that was an unfortunate casualty of war.

Listening to a great soundtrack of Imelda May, Hugh Laurie and Catatonia. My podcast playlist has included lots of The Moth and TED, some Cast-On, some Craftypod, and (hurrah, she’s back) Never Not Knitting.

 

How about you?
