My older daughter will be graduating in May, so there is alot going on with for that, the other week all of the Seniors had a day trip to York. Myself and a friend, who's daughters (twins) are seniors too, got to go on the trip.
I love going to York. One of the stops was the Minster I hadn't been in a few years. The details inside and out is amazing. Want to take a look?
Reminds me of the top of a fair isle hat.
There is some work going on in there, for the massive back glass window, that tells of the Apocalypse. There is 108 panels so its not a small job. There was a huge plastic copy of the window hanging in its place. I can imagine a lot of patience is needed for that job. You can read about it here if you want to.
Just to the side, you can see some of the scaffolding that's being used, that is a long way up!
Some more scaffolding just under the archway.
Well, now I need to go and catch up on some blogs. I have nearly got some little bunnies finished, they are a tad tedious, and at the minute I've not knitted their ears so they look like strange little bald things. I need to take some pictures of some knitting that I have done so I can show you all.
I have yet to cast on the 180 stitches needed to start a fairisle project that is patiently waiting. I think the thought of a 180 stitch cast on is a bit mind numbing, but I have heard of more. How many times am I going to have to re-count that? On the go too, is another blackberry stitch hat, by mistake I grabbed DK instead of aran weight but it seems to be going ok, and its for a smaller head.
I think I could do with cloning myself, and one of them gets to just knit, go to nice places, get lost in wool shops, and not have to pay attention to the time. But then I bet a scrap would break out amongst the clones. Cleaning clone and a few others would not be happy. But that is not going to happen, so I will just squeeze it in where I can, knitting that is, not scrapping with clones. ;)
