I have got so much tidying up and organising to do. At the moment, you can find yarn and unwashed/unblocked knitted items everywhere. I still haven't finishing sewing up my garter stitch cardigan (only one side to do) and I still haven't blocked my blue cropped knitted jacket. I need to sort out my book keeping for Intertwined Knits (this is naughty considering I'm an Accountant) and I need to list more items. Arggg....so much to do. Kyoko and I are planning a trip to Ikea one evening. She needs to get some storage for her bread making ingredients and I need to get some storage for my yarn stash and a new clock (yes our old one is broken).

During this time we went to the Museum of London to see their new gallery.
Such beautiful shoes and dresses. I can only day dream of wearing the brown sequin dress and the golden shoes at my ballroom dance classes.....sigh.....
We said farewell to a neighbour who are moving to North London, if you look closely you can spot her off to do their last shopping in this area. We are going to miss them.
Then over the weekend we cheered Kyoko at the 10k Bupa race followed by dim sum and Hagaan Das.
The last 400 meters towards Buckingham Palace.
Well done Kyoko! Read more about her run here.

Then there was a fraudulent transaction on my credit card of approximately £5,000 ($8,000). It took several phone calls to the credit card company for them to resolve the issue and then clear the payment and fees on my account.
If that wasn't enough, my daughter's optician made an error making her first pair of glasses. Luckily she has been refusing to wear them and we have not forced her to until her next appointment with the eye doctor. I went to meet the store director this morning who has apologised and promised to sort out the problem.
So it has been a little stressful, but thanks to family and friends (and some knitting) it hasn't been too bad. I've also taken three days off this week to relax and hopefully do some baking and knitting.
As well as fixing these things, I have also been mending some clothes and I've started a new project. I'd thought I'd better add some photos to this blog post. :)
My small haberdashery basket, a present from Gracie.
Have a lovely week everyone.

Over the long weekend we went to Bumbles with friends who knew the owner there.

All is done now, so I can relax and enjoy the long weekend (it is a UK public holiday this coming Monday). I'm just gonna eat and sleep. Hee Hee Hee!
Only joking. I'm planning on visiting friends and family and also do some knitting. I've just got the left front and collar of my beige cropped cardigan to knit up. I also need to block my turquoise cardigan so I can start wearing it. Then if I have time, make a start of my Ishbel (from Ysolda's first book). I went to Loop a couple of weeks ago to buy this lovely yarn:
Malabrigo Lace (100% baby merino).
Hopefully, mine will look as lovely as this.
Have a relaxing weekend everyone.

There was a man juggling whilst running.....truly amazing!
On our way to the pub we bumped into some friends so decided to have some Sunday roast together. The food was lovely and it was nice to have a relaxed Sunday afternoon chatting with friends and eating some good food. We then went for a walk by the river and look what we saw:
Did someone leave their knitting behind? ;) I've heard of a group of people who knit things and leave them around London, so it could be them. Or maybe someone did leave their knitting behind. What do you think?
Anyway, I have some good news.......I've made my first sale on Etsy. Yay! I was so happy, that I've been telling everyone. :) This month has sure been a strange one, I will talk about this in another blog post.
Have a good week everyone!
