The waiting room

I'm now in the waiting room for my flat purchase. Everything that can be done has been from my point of view, I now just have to wait for contracts to be drawn up, and then a completion date to be agreed! I have no idea how long this will take.

In the meantime, as I'm obviously in a period of financial constraint (even more so than usual) I'm going to have to reduce my yarn buying budget.

I think this will be a good (although challenging) thing though! It gives me motivation to use up all these lovely colourful scraps to make something:

Sorry about the slight blurriness of this shot. These colours are less of a tangle than they look - I did go to the effort of winding them all in some way! Can you guess what I'm going to make!? Well, I'll share a sneak peek with you on Sunday!

This is the stage my hexagon throw has currently reached. It only needs 2 more rows to be added, and the finishing and it will be complete!

One last thing before I disappear for a few days - I thought it might be nice to share some of the more impressive sites of London that I pass by in my peripatetic life! 

This is St Pancras Hotel. I pass this on my walk between King's Cross and the office each day, and this week, while peering up at the sky (wondering if it will rain or stay sunny!) I was reminded how amaxing this building is, so thought I would take a snap and share with you.

The hotel was renovated when the Channel Tunnel rail link moved from Waterloo to St Pancras a few years ago. I would love to stay in it one day!

Right, I'm off to work soon, and then to stay at S's place. I'll be back on Sunday, so see you then. In the meantime have a lovely weekend!

  1. It sounds like things are moving more quickly on the home front than you first expected Jen, although all the red tape can swallow a bit of time! All the best with it!
    Pity it means you curtailing yourself re yarn buying but as you say, you can still use up your stash!
    Gosh that hexi is so colourful and bright, I'm looking forward to seeing it finished.
    That is a beautiful building - it's a shame that we can become so accustomed to seeing such beauty that we don't pay it much attention any more! Thank you for letting us see it!

    1. Hi Joy, thanks! Yes it is a shame to be on a self imposed yarn-diet, but at the end of the day I have ask myself whether I'd rather have some new yarn or a bed to sleep in and a sofa to sit on! :o)
