Another hat, and weekend plans
|The Steam Fair's in town, hurrah!|
I'm sorry the blog has been so quiet lately. I've mentioned in the past that I do freelance stuff on top of the day job, and I've had a massive stack of extra work lately, which has left very little time for vintagey fun. However, I finished my last chunk of writing (for now!) last night.
While waiting for the yarn for Sarah's wedding cardi to arrive I have cast on yet another Fair Isle hat from my favourite pattern. I like knitting those. Not sure what I'll do with it – I don't need another one – but I'm sure it'll find a home eventually.
Mr Robot and I have a weekend of FUN planned. Carter's Steam Fair is in Bath this weekend, so we plan to go into town on the Saturday, visit the 'Laura Ashley: The Romantic Heroine' exhibition at the Fashion Museum, enjoy a few whizzes round on the rides at the Steam Fair, and round the whole thing off with a bevy of beers. Mr Robot is even more suspicious of all things 1970s than I am, so I'm looking forward to seeing his expression of horror at the exhibition.
Looking further ahead, Bill Bryson will be coming to Bath in November. He's doing a talk on his new book, One Summer, exploring the America of the 1920s AND he'll be doing it in Bath's gorgeous art deco Forum cinema. We've already booked our tickets! If it sounds like your thing, Toppings are selling tickets for Bill Bryson in Bath.
Anyway, now I'm going to relax before another avalanche of responsibility lands on me...
