Relaxing


I thought this would be a good photo to start a post with! Hello everyone, hope you are all having a fab weekend. I am having a very relaxing one, in an attempt to recover from the tiredness I was complaining of last week.

S and I have a really nice day yesterday, walking around Bulter's Wharf and Wapping. I thought I would share these pictures with you, as this area is one of my favourite places in London. This is part of the London Docklands, not far form Tower Bridge. The whole area was re-developed in the 1980s, after it had fallen into decline. These pictures are of former warehouses on the south side of the river there. They've all now been converted into trendy (and eye-wateringly expensive) apartments. I love walking around there. There is something atmospheric about these buildings. I love that they have retained their original names, some related to the kind of goods that were brought to land there - there is a Java Wharf - and some which sound like they are related to owners or shipping companies - New Concordia Wharf, St Saviours Wharf. It's a great place to explore anyway.




I also managed to finish something this weekend! Here it is, my completed scarf. I think someone asked for the pattern after my last post. It's called Netherton, and can be bought as a Ravelry download from Mrs Moon here.


I'm quite happy with how this came out, and it was good fun to make. The pattern wasn't nearly as complicated as I thought it was going to be looking at the picture on the front before I started. It was really fund making the bobbles at each end too!




I think I can feel another version of this scarf coming on, perhaps all in one colour...

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
