We changed to blogging these on a Monday to give ourselves more of a chance of actually putting them out on the day that we said we would, and yet here we are blogging a day late again. I’m not sure what happened to Monday to be honest, like most of the days at the moment it made a nice woosh noise as it went rushing past us!
Getting back from Blackpool on Sunday wrote off most of that day and the beginning of last week was just spent catching up with life and organising the week. Nikki is much better at that and it normally results in a nicely laid out page in her bullet journal…
Here is her month page for March (seriously how is it March already!):
Nikki is still keeping up with the lettering practice and is experimenting with different mediums. Here she is trying out the watercolour crayons that we own (for some unknown reason):
If you follow Pippa on Instagram you might have seen that she decided to cast on a Carbeth sweater, both marled and colour blocked! Mason Dixon Knitting had chosen the pattern for their knit-along trying to produce a sweater in the shortest month of the year.
This sweater is now finished and seamed up 🙂 but as you can see is being modelled here by Nikki as it proved to be a little bit small for Pippa (that will teach her to go off-piste and try and change the proportions to suit her style better. But what can I say it looks so squishy and snuggly here, hopefully it will get lots of wear.
Pippa seems to have got some of her sew-jo back and managed to wrestle the tight fitting block, from Melissa Fehr’s Sew Your Own Active Wear book, into submission. And now she has a nice long sleeved base layer top made from lovely viscose knit from Tia Knight
Unless you have been living under a rock you will know that this week the UK weather has been dominated by snow! Thankfully here in Southampton we haven’t exactly had that much compared to the rest of the country but for Southampton this is a LOT considering we very rarely have snow actually settle on the ground here maybe once every 5 years! Although it did play havoc with busses and trains for a few days, the cars got going quicker than the trains. I had a friend drive down from Glasgow on the Friday but another friend couldn’t make it to Southampton from Portsmouth because not a single train was running!
And well when we are snowed into our house there is only one sensible course of action. Fried Brunch:
