bank holiday weekend

we had a lovely bank holiday. cold, but lovely. we took samuel to a farm! we met up with my sister and her husband and we saw lambs being fed, a sheepdog, cows, pigs, donkeys, goats, alpaca, geese and we had a picnic!

i had another moment of weakness and spent yet more money on yarn:

this one didn’t stay in it’s skein very long and all 1600+ yards of it are being wound (by hand, by me!) into a ball so that i can make it into a large shawl. i feel less guilty about buying it as i actually finished something this weekend:

it’s a small shawl, which is just right as a scarf for chilly summer days (like monday!). it was my first attempt at lace knitting and i’m secretly quite impressed with myself!

lastly, here’s samuel in training for the tourdefrance… or something.
