A wild and windy couple of days - horizontal snow much of the time and gritters on all the major roads. Why do I remember getting summer clothes and sandals at Easter as a child? Is that one of those trick childhood memories that turns every Summer holiday into a Famous Five book or is the weather really shifting so drastically?
We walked on the beach, dressed like we were walking across Antarctica, and drove up to the Heugh Breakwater, near my new school, to watch the waves in action.
What a person needs, when the weather is like this, is a bright, bright, bright cosy wool sweater:
Terrible picture, but lovely sweater. This is my take on Chinese Lace Pullover by Angela Hahn. My modifications were: longer body (about 3 inches more), merino dk instead of cotton/silk, added some rows of garter stitch around the neck as I felt the neckline was too low when I had finished it, only did 1 repeat of lace around the sleeves so they weren't too fussy.
