Stepping back in time

We went back to the 1940s today on a class trip to Eden Camp.

We survived the Blitz, went shopping with our ration coupons, learned how hard wash day was and dug for victory.

Catch up post.

Heck, another break from blogging. Not intentional. Going back to work has swallowed all my time.
Work is inconvenient. It gets in the way of my knitting, reading and other enjoyments.

I have been knitting. I log most of my progress on Ravelry, but here are the edited highlights:

Camouflage stole in Malabrigo Sock Yarn, Turner shade.
This was an easy knit and will be useful. I had knitted half of it and then had to pull it back again as the second skein was much darker than the first. The result is a camouflage-coloured evening stole suitable for your everyday combat situation. Nevermind. It feels nice.

A bag for iPod Touch. To hold it safely when on the Treadmill.

Russula beret in Twilley's Freedom Spirit. I think I'll get a lot of wear out of this during the winter and may just have found a hat shape that suits me.

Ishbel in Socks That Rock, Lover's Leap. This knit up amazingly quickly.

It feels like more.
