Bold & Bright #Folksy

Well here I am back from my long weekend away. I use the term `long` loosely you understand, as it went far too quickly. We were out and about in the city centre of Milton Keynes for a bit of shopping. You`ll be shocked to discover I bought some yarn ..... Just couldn`t resist the beautiful soft 100% cotton yarn. I could easily have bought loads more but heroically I managed to restrain myself.
An enjoyable lunch out before heading back through the blizzard made for a lovely Saturday. Sunday was seeing more family and being fed a divine roast lunch. With great conversation and a glass of wine or two it was a great Sunday. Monday of course I travelled back home via the train, pretty much a repeat of Friday except heading in the other direction.
Over the weekend I also managed to make 9 pairs of fingerless mittens in different colours and styles. I worked out a new pattern that was really easy to do and much quicker. With the stitch I`ve been using lately, that I invented a while back, they are as stretchy as ribbing. Yay!!
I am going to try and make the effort to write the pattern down in a coherent manner and offer it for sale.
I may well ask for a volunteer to test it for me, I`ll see.
Nearly forgot to write about the blog. In view of the dire, dark and grey weather I decided to go for beautiful bold and bright creations today. I also chose Folksy as it seems to be their turn.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

A vast rolling landscape in monochrome,
spread out before me as I travel home.
A grey sky and white on the ground,
from the snow that lay all around.
Look at that house, how do they live?
Surely soon, something will give.
Perched up there, seeming to dangle
on the hillside at such an angle.
Before that thought really takes hold
it`s gone, disappeared in a fold
of land as the train whizzes by
this big metal monster that seems to fly.
Flying along with a rumble and clatter,
shaking the ground, the sounds that shatter
the peace of the countryside
these sounds are heard far and wide.
It doesn`t impact upon city or town
the noise there will easily drown
out this monster that chugs along
so very big, noisy and strong!!
