Yesterday we had a really lovely day out. DH took me to the East coast to the seaside for the day. The nearest beach is 100 miles away from my home. The weather was beautiful, the sun shone and it was quite warm We even had a paddle in the sea and a walk barefoot along the beach for a mile or two.
A very BIG little boy decided to wade in a bit too far and got his jeans soaked... boys will be boys LOL. Out at sea a wind farm has been put up, there are 53 windmills along this stretch of the beach. Some people are against them as they say they spoil the view, but i personally think they look really spectacular and i'm all for way that we can create energy. Would you be against a wind farm near you? Does it make a difference if its out at sea on inland? What are your views on wind farms?
The double knitted socks on 2 pins are finished, they knitted up so quickly and easily. They are nice and comfy to wear but i am still needing to try the 4 pin method.
I did actually buy a couple more balls of 4 ply wool in preparation for next winter as DH was so thrilled with the ones i knitted this year. I am determined to have a go with 4 pins before next winter so he can have warm and toasty feet again, i've got about 9 months to practice and get a pair knitted up for him LOL
Today is reveal for the monthly challenge at Stitch and Stash, this time we did 'Be True' from Plum Street Samplers. You can see the other finishes this month in the album here. According to the post counter, my last entry was number 500 on the blog. In celebration i've decided to give away my pinkeep version of the design to a blog reader. If you'd like to have it, please say so on your comment and i'll draw a winner later in the week.
Last night it was time to put the clocks forward an hour, losing an hours sleep is not the best news but lighter evenings will be very welcome, DH can spend more time in the garden tending his lovely plants, did you all remember to alter your clocks? Hope you had a lovely weekend and are ready to welcome in April and Easter later this week.
