WIPs and Books and a TATTOO!

KNITTING: Nuvem by Martina Behm using Garnstudio Drops Lace
READING: The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce
After finishing off a couple of projects (look out for another FO on Friday) and unravelling the Chevron Lace Cardi which was too big, I'm adding some incredibly loooong rounds to Nuvem and wondering what to cast on next. I have a few ideas (maybe a stashbusting Moonshadow?) but will probably wait until after half term and our trip to Wales. The most exciting Work In Progress today is definitely this one.....
.....if you follow on Pinterest you'll have seen me pinning lots of tattoos for inspiration. I was really lucky to get a cancellation slot for today as Jack is booked-up many months in advance. I'll post another picture when it's healed.
In the last week I've become addicted to a really really stupid show (it was cancelled after the first season so I hope it doesn't end on a cliffhanger!) I'm watching it via SkyGo on the iPad in bed or while doing the ironing - if you have a Sky subscription and an iPad this app is a must, there are lots of great things to watch, not just this kind of addictive rubbish! As a result, I haven't done much reading but I'm still enjoying Harold Fry's pilgrimage.
As usual I'm linking with Tami and Ginny today. Enjoy.

  4. Oh I love that rose! I keep looking at tattoos but I just can't decide what I want or if I can handle the pain. But that is lovely.
