Listening to: ‘Songs of the Baltic Sea’, sung by the National Youth Choir of GB. One of those CDs we can’t remember buying or why, probably because we heard an excerpt on the radio. Very calm and melodious.
(I spoke too soon. The children have just arrived so it’s got a lot noisier.)
Reading: ‘The Chapel on the Edge of the World’ by Kirsten McKenzie. I haven’t really got into it yet, so the jury is still out.
Watching: The Vuelta, and Inspector Montalbano. Just like last week.
Making: the modular scarf is finished, finished, washed and blocked. And provided you don’t look at it too closely it looks good. It ended up over 2 metres in wingspan, so I could have stopped a row of modules earlier and saved myself a lot of aggro.
The second scarf is making good progress, as the knit one, slip one purlwise is now implanted in my brain. (The pattern suggests working all rows from the same side, which means there’s only a knit row to automatise.) Both scarves are darker than they appear in the photos: Wensleydale says this one is mediaeval in colour.
Feeling: better. Progress is definitely being made on the unhelpful relative front. They don’t like it, but it’s happening.
Anticipating: live coverage of the Tour of Britain starts tomorrow.
