It's been one of those weeks......

......when nothing much has been achieved. Winter made another appearance with overnight coverings of snow, and windscreen de-icing was the order of the day. I'm not quite sure where all my time goes - I don't seem to have as much knitting time as previously. It's probably because I'm still trying to sort things out around the house. It's not long until the Easter holidays now and I am looking forward to some knitting and spinning time. Time for me, me, me!!
I have finished the first of a pair of socks, knit in a wonderful yarn that I'll tell you more about once I have finished them.

I am test knitting some mitts for Marianne at the moment, it's a fun pattern, but I'd better not show you until she has released the pattern! I am itching to get back to my 64 Crayons blanket, but am going to get these two knits finished first. I had to pop into my local yarn shop yesterday as I didn't have the right size needles to get started on the mitts. Not only did I buy the needles, but I also fell in love with some Regia merino and angora sock yarn. The colour is beautiful, a pale duck egg blue, and it is so, so soft. When I came home, Mr JK asked what I'd bought besides the needles - he knows me so well!!

I made some delicious cheesy garlic bread today. Mr JK found the recipe on the BBC Good Food website. It's so simple to make but tastes delicious. I can definitely recommend it.  I made 12 sections rather than the 8 the recipe recommended. We ate ours with some stuffed peppers and salad. Yummy!

Florence has been mountaineering this week - she has discovered the mantelpiece and managed to break two ornaments! She is still wearing her collar, and it doesn't seem to bother her. We discovered this week that the magnet needed to open the cat flap won't fit over the clasp on this collar, but are hoping that she will accept the original style of collar now. Watch this space!!
Have a good week, whatever you have planned. I hope the sun shines in your part of the world! xxx

I don't know where my time goes either, and I don't have to go to work nor have I just moved house. Winter is still here and forecast to continue for the coming week, nothing to do but knit eat and sleep, fortunately I enjoy all of those. Hope spring arrives in time for your Easter break.

time has a way of doing that, doesn't it? my last week seemed to breeze by as well...
and we're in a blizzard warning today, although i think the brunt of it will miss us.

your meal looks so so delicious! that bread looks fantastic!

here's to a more productive week! (or at least a productive week knitting-wise!)

That garlic bread looks delicious! I love garlic bread with cheese. I always buy more than I planned to in LYSs. I like to think of it as supporting local business! ;)
