Weekend escape and some knitting....

It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted. It has been particularly busy at work and I have been too tired to do anything much when I get in apart from my knitting! 

We managed to escape for much needed R & R last weekend in celebration of my birthday last Tuesday. We stayed at The Belfry in Yarcombe which is lovely, fabulous comfy beds, L'Occitane products in the bathroom and smoked salmon and scrambled eggs to die for! 

Saturday saw us in Seaton, Beer & Honiton, I love to walk along the beach and browse around quaint little villages, you never know what delights you might stumble across, I did find a fabric shop in Seaton! The weather was kind to us, the sun made an appearance although it was a bit nippy.

 Can't believe its November, guess the empty beach gives a clue! 
 Look at that gorgeous blue sky. 

Sunday saw us in West Bay and a quick visit to Dorchester on the way home

 Not so sunny but stunning scenery. 
We plan to return in the summer and walk to the top of the cliff, sadly we didn't have enough time last weekend. 

Here is what I have been knitting over the last couple of weeks
 Fab light and warm tank top, made a little longer to cover my derrière. Looks great with a long sleeved t-shirt and leggings or jeans.
 A lovely cowl, knitting with supersoft Rowan yarn, ready to keep me cosy on my beach walks!
 Another pair of socks, these may well end up in someone's Christmas stocking. I can never seem to photograph these well, think I need to make a sock template for photos.

I will be back later with photos of fabric and makes.... 
Keep warm.

Sam :)
