Weird weather

I just don't know where I am with all this weird weather.  I spend ages looking from my wardrobe to the window trying to decide the best thing to wear - will it rain, will the sun stay out, will it get warmer?  I've given up relying on the Met Office or the weather man (who boldly stated on Saturday lunchtime, "Well, it's a rather pleasant day out there...."  Me and HP turned to the window in baffled bemusement as we watched the rain tip it down!  I got it wrong yesterday and was too hot and today I'm sitting here with the fan heater on *sigh*.

Still, this rain has done wonders for HP's garden and we had some of his lovely homegrown produce last night for dinner.

I've always been dreadful at gardening, so I'm most impressed with HP's green fingers.  We've owned our own house for over a year, so this is the first time he's been able to properly grow his own produce.  I've also discovered he has a talent for DIY, which is always a bonus for a wife!

I've been throwing myself in to my knitting quite a bit too.  I've only been knitting for a couple of years and a lot of what I've learned has been self-taught (thank you YouTube!), so I'm not the fastest knitter in the world and it takes me months to finish a project.  So, I'm now starting to see the drawback of having a crafting blog; I just can't show many projects very often!

I'm working on a simple lace top right now.   It's a simple 4-row pattern.  Initially I managed to make some mistakes and had to restart a few times before I got it right.  That doesn't bother me too much as I enjoy the process, although it's always nice to finish a garment too!

The pattern is from July's issue of Knit Today.  I have to say it's my favourite knitting magazine as I always find so much in there that I want to make.  I'm going to have to knit much faster to achieve them all though!

I've only got 7 days left in my job too - yay!  Now, if the sun would just come out......
