So its been a little while since I posted. ..I’ve had very little knitting time and even less blogging time! My last two posts were written throughout June but I didn’t get round to publishing them until now.
As I may have mentioned I started a new job 3 months ago. So after a 4 weeks unemployment (in which I knitted & blogged constantly) I was thrown into full time hours and intensive training.
This has been a time of upheaval for me since I was made redundant after 8 years and the shop I worked in closed down. I’m now working in a very different industry but now the training is nearly over I’m starting to get back to normal.
So I’m still working om Itaca, it hasn’t grown much lately but I’m nearly up to the colour change.
The weather scarf is being hurriedly brought up to date (thank god for the internet!)and is looking good.
I haven’t started the GOT scarf yet, mainly because I swatched it and couldn’t figure out the technique and partly because Itaca is the priority.
Also…Animal Crossing New Leaf came out and its stealing my life!
The walled garden was unfortunately locked but it sure looked pretty!
Then across the mini train tracks. ..
And down to the water
Here’s some wild rhubarb, unfortunately it had already been picked and was a touch wilted …
The terrain changes massively here…
Amazing stone pillar with brass map on the top!
Many people have made their mark on the rocks over the years!
We climbed to the top
Back down the rocks
Here some wild cotton!
Back through the heather and homeward
So last saturday we went for a massively long day out with a few friends.
Here’s some pretty pictures of all the super amazing stuff we saw…
Couldn’t help but be intrigued, who doesn’t want to investigate something in the forest called The Bear Pit?
Mysterious steps down to a little door…
The other side comes out in… the pit!
There are still a couple of bears left…
We found a swing and hilarity ensued…
Then we came to the bluebells…
And lastly The Warreners Seat
Then we drove to Thurstaston beach…
Found these little stone towers…
Then back up
And into the woods and home
