A pink cotton sweater finished and folded waiting for M. This sweater is super simple and knitted up really quickly in the last moments of summer. Like so many of project I undertake it was then left for ages and ages and ages waiting patiently to be sewn together. Finally sat down and sewed it up this past Sunday. It didn’t take very long and frankly I rather enjoy sewing up knitted pieces with mattress stitch. Go figure why this final step consistently takes me so long?
In those final moments of summer if I wasn’t outside enjoying the sunshine knitting then I was probably lying back on the banana lounge soaking in the glorious weather as I read Jonathon Tropper’s This Is Where I Leave You. I borrowed the book from our local library after seeing it on this list. So glad that I did. Perfect novel for those final summer days, a light and easy read that had me laughing out loud at times. Due for release as a movie at the end of the year, it was easy to visualise Jason Bateman in the lead role and there certainly is potential for a good rom-com chick flick.
Ah. Already I am longing for those summer days and we haven’t even officially started winter yet. On the sticks now is a much needed jumper for baby Ace. Loads and loads of rain this week so no more lounging about outside in the shade of the frangipanis, instead I have been curled up in bed wearing my new red and white polka dot flannelette pyjamas that I was gifted for mother’s day reading Philippa Gregory’s The Other Boleyn Girl for bookclub.
Linking up with Ginny.
