Two ladies and a whole lotta wool
So, nearly a month break from the craft blog! Shame on me. Moving has turned my life into a never-ending maze of cardboard boxes and thus the knitting slipped off the radar.
It’s a sad story, I know. Plus side is planting out veggies has been very much on the agenda – so at least one meditative practice has been adhered to:

Guess that means I best get on and pick up the needles again.
Here are some shots of me doing the stitch itself:
