Month of Posts - Summer 2017 - Days 9, 10 & 11
I thought I would be able to get lots of knitting done on this blanket during the week but I've ended up spending lots of time in the studio and on the computer so the blanket is incomplete. I need a good hot/sunny day to wash and block it so I should get a move on really (blocking's when you soak your knitted item and then pin it to shape and let it dry; it then keeps the new shape you have given it.).
Our neighbourhood needs a few more trees, I love listening to their leaves, watching the birds amongst the branches and also, they're great screens because it's not great to look out of your bedroom window straight into your neighbour's garden/patio doors. So many people round here seem to absolutely hate trees, it's so annoying. My other tree peeve is when people start 'pruning' them (hacking branches off), to which the trees respond by sending out tall shoots, doubling in size and goading the pruners into cutting them down. Poor mutilated trees, gives me the rage.
