A week in sunny Cornwall saw considerable progress on my Ink Circles project, though to the finish I was hoping for. All done except for the central circle, which will be picked out with a slightly pinker thread than the others. The end is definitely in sight, and one of my older UFOs is almost ready to be turned onto a FO!
I realised on the first day of our holiday that my beautiful new(ish)wellies were leaking. It wasn’t even raining, but we were walking the dog in a damp field when it became clear that I had a definitely wet left foot. I wasn’t best impressed, having paid what felt like a small fortune for Hunter wellies, which I was assured are wonderful, and really comfy. Comfy, they definitely were, but having failed in the waterproof department in just over six months didn’t impress. Unusually for me, I felt the need to pursue the problem. Emailed Hinter, and was really impressed with their customer service. A couple of photos were requested to show the damage, and evidence that they were indeed Hunter wellies, and within one working day, I was sent a link to choose a new pair. Delivery of shiny new red wellies should be on Monday, but in the mean time, I was sent detailed instructions of how to destroy the defective ones. It took an inordinate amount of will power to demolish them in the required way!
Last picture of the day, the early beginnings of my next shawl – one. Of the EZ 100th anniversary one. Really looking forward to see this one develop.
