I got my Ravelry invitation on Saturday evening ! My name is Merinomills - original eh?
I had started a new project on Friday (I told you I'd break some of my resolutions by the 13th January! lol) a little shrug for our friends wee girl - I need to get a move on , as it is for her birthday - 2 weeks ago! Was feeling good as it was from stash and not a new purchase - its DB astrakhan in powder blue , and is dreadful to knit with , but both looks and feels great . Had been checking my email to see if there were any invites , but nothing !
Spent a wonderful , albeit cold, Saturday afternoon at Pollok Park and the Burrell Collection with DH and the children . Saw the Highland Cattle out in the fields next to the house. Then walked very briskly to the Burrell Collection to heat up and have a look inside , or if you are small boys , run around , then demand to go to the cafe for some overpriced sticky cake of sorts! It is a great museum to visit , most of it on the one level , and everything in order and well spaced. There was also a lovely exhibition of Joseph Crawhall's Watercolours , on Reynard the Fox ! The kids showed a little interest , then ran off to buy bendy erasers from the museum shop - very cultured , my lot , NOT! lol
After I got home , and fed the masses , was about to settle down to some more knitting but thought I'd check my inbox first , and there it was .... my invite .
So .... three hours later , the children went to bed in disgust at their mother growling from the computer - "DO NOT DISTURB ME!" Their Father was sat happily in front of Sky Sports!
