I still haven't finished the Vogue jacket, although I am hoping to over the next week - it's been rainy and dark this week, and I can't see well enough to sew in the evenings. I'm going to bring a lamp next to the desk to make it easier!
Instead I have started a new knitting project (even though I still haven't quite finished Mum's cardigan!). For my birthday my friend Rob gave me some lovely balls of wool, one of which was a Rowan Colourscape Chunky in Northern Lights:
I managed to get one more in the same dye lot, and then realised dye lots don't really matter too much with yarn like that, so bought another 2 in a different dye lot. I think it might be one of the most expensive yarns I've ever bought!
I'm making the Skye wrap from Kim Hargreaves book Amber. I've done one ball, and it's great to be knitting something nice and simple so I can work on it in movies etc. I don't have a photo of the project, because as I said it's been too dark and horrid!
I also decided to start a 365 project to take a photo everyday. To make it neater I started officially on 1st September, but as soon as I decided to do it I started taking more photos. Here are some of the chickens!
Margot laid a beautiful box of eggs:
She is also a bit crazy (I had some fennel leaves in my hand, and she wanted them!):
Georgina is a balancing hen. She just loves perching on things, like the arm of your garden chair, or a pot:
We love them!
Bye for now.

OMG!!!! I grew up on a farm and we always had chickens running around. Ours were white. LOL I love hearing about your chickens AND your knitting!

Your chickens are great! I've been looking into getting some, so I love to hear how things are going with yours. Thanks for including them in your posts! I'm looking forward to seeing more pics of your Mum's cardigan, the colors are quite lovely.
