Knitting in the dark at 30,000 feet

Posted on

No blog posts for a bit as I’ve been on holiday and chose to remain away from tech for the duration. My adorable husband booked us a surprise trip to Mauritius – I celebrated a special birthday whilst we were there and it couldn’t have been more perfect!   It’s been such a treat to escape the winter chills of the UK.

I rarely go anywhere without a knitting project , even on a flight. Unfortunately I can’t have been thinking straight (blame it on excitement about the trip. I have plenty of experience of knitting whilst on the go).  My yarn, pretty, black with silver sparkles .. what was going on my head? Why didn’t I pack something lighter and brighter?

At least the movies were good though!

 

I’ve actually been back a few days now, the tan is fading fast and reality is starting to kick in – especially as here in Kent we have a snow today.  I plan a stay-home knitting day! hurrah!
