It's been a good day.
I have mastered, I think, knitting with circular needles using magic loop so am making slow progress with my first attempt at socks.
Will be slow as needles are 2.5, the yarn is very Regia sock yarn, very fine, and I have two other projects ongoing, a second cushion cover in pewter Jaeger silk and wool yarn and a cardigan with lots of cable and pattern. Enjoying the variety.
Second good event today was when I was working at the local studies library where you may remember I am one of the volunteers involved in a digitalisation project whereby local planning applications from 1880s to 1960s will be on line. Today, the first application I did was for our own house, well and next door as we are a semi. Pixie Towers was built in 1934, and as far as I could see it had been built as the plans, except for the loft access hatch was shown to be outside the bathroom whereas it is situated outside bedrooms 1 & 4. (These rooms are actually next to each other).
Very silly to be so excited about a plan and a form but I was. Especially as we have a copy of the original sales brochure for this estate. The illustration on that matched an illustration on the plan.
Knitted sock on the bus coming home, circular needles are so much more portable than straight ones.
Good night readers.
