a scarf and flowers

Both the scarf and the house are finished. The house is wonderful. Sometimes I just have to sit down to take it all in. It's still a bit unreal - like being on holiday in a house belonging to someone else and not really knowing where things are or which switch turns on which light or how to use the oven. There is still a bit of unpacking to do but things are running pretty smoothly.

The scarf is, by comparison, less amazing than the house, but still good. I think the blocks of colour work well. It can look different depending on how it's tied. And I'm quite liking the shorter length  - so much easier to wear. Here's an even shorter, cuter one


And here is the start of my next knitting project. These little flowers are deceptively easy to make. I followed the instructions in Jane Brocket's book The gentle art of knitting. 

And, finally, some more Alstroemeria. You're probably over Alstroemeria but can you have too much of a good thing?  

Listening Birdy by Birdy + Reading How to be a woman by Caitlin Moran (funny, annoying, true) + Watching Girls (TV series, created by and starring the amazing  Lena Dunham) + Missing Louie - a lot.
