Jubilee Bank Holiday Progress

We've just celebrated a four day celebration for Her Majesty the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Fantastic stuff, loved all the pageantry and celebrations, although I didn't personally go to see anything. I really can't stand crowds plus I think, it would feel like I was going back to work, as the nearest bridges to me would be London Bridge or Tower Bridge (for the Flotilla) or trying to get to St Paul's, etc., as I work in the City. Too much for the Bank Holiday, besides I had a brilliant view on my TV set and I didn't even get wet!!!

However, I did manage to get a couple of photos of the boats beginning to congregate at London Bridge on Friday, (sorry not as spectacular as Sunday's Flotilla) but still quite exciting at this stage:

(Note: Tower Bridge is in the background):

Anyway, for this weekend I decided to finish off/work on some WIP's that have been lying around for quite a while - one for at least 18 months or so. A Beret and matching Scarf (my own design), which I did manage to complete yesterday and I am very happy with these I must say. I will probably publish more on this in a later blog.

I have also made much progress on my Lace Leaf Wrap, only 3 more pattern repeats to go, before I am finished and can I be honest?.... I can't wait for this to be done. It seems like its been on the needles forever, although actually its a lot less time than the Beret and Scarf. Here's where I am so far:

I don't think I've done so bad this weekend. I kept my resolve, although you don't know how sorely tempted I was to cast on something new- even winding some organic merino wool that I had lying around (as you do) into a ball - but no, I persevered with the older stuff, freed up some needles and now feel good for it.

Oh and I finished some socks.
