We've certainly been doing a lot of travelling recently. After a couple of years when we travelled very little, we've been catching up in a big way with trips to the UK, Sweden and Japan only a few weeks apart. It's hard to know what time-zone we're working in right now!
My dear husband Tim photographed it for me while we were there and I love this shot of his with it wrapped around a window. This is Enkō-ji temple in the North of Kyoto – a wonderfully quiet place with an open view onto the maple garden. We were there just at the start of the autumn season and the leaves were turning to amazing shades of orange and red.
However, the colours in Sweden were something special, with such rich yellows and oranges everywhere. So inspiring! I have actually knitted this bag about three times over as I keep getting about ⅔rds of the way up to the top and then deciding I could do something better and then ripping it out again. Well, you get more enjoyment per gm of knitting yarn that way don't you! (Ways to think positively while undoing several hours of work ....)
Anyway, the knitting for that is done now and I just need to add a lining. However, I need to put that aside for now and start work on making some mince pies for tomorrow!
So, here's wishing you all a very Happy Christmas/Holiday season and hope that you have a wonderful time with your families.
