Pottering around...

It's been a strangely busy week or two. I thought I'd be a lot less busy at the end of July this year - the Cambridge Folk Festival has gone by without me this year, due to Kevin and Kate's imminent new addition to the family; and there was this book I wanted to read last weekend - three dribble-cloths and a baby bib's worth, as it turned out.

No spoilers - I know Nic for one hasn't finished it yet - but I enjoyed it immensely.



This weekend I'm knitting up samples for the course I'm teaching next week - it was extremely good fun last year. (There are still places, so if you're at a loose end Wednesday-Friday next week, do follow the link and sign up!)

Have also been finishing the latest Unbloggable Project and contemplating what to do for the next one...



And as a random but pretty image, I was given a phalaenopsis as a present from friends, in honour of something else I can't blog about yet... Looking it up, it turns out to be a Moth Orchid! Nice. I love moths, apart from the tiny minority of UK moths which enjoy yarn as much as I do... one of these appeared on the window on a very rare pleasant evening a couple of weeks ago, and I saw one of these fluttering around near work last Wednesday evening...

And now I need to go and proofread Mrs R.'s written directions for Chart F of MS3...

Thank you for not spoiling :)

Pretty moths! We've had hummingbird moths in our garden the past couple of years, but I don't think it's warm enough this year.
