Sunday Sevens – May 28th

Joining in again this week with Sunday Sevens, which was started by Nathalie at Threads and Bobbins.

Last weekend Lovely Husband headed north to help his parents move house. Mr Hicks is getting to old to travel so far, so we stayed at home. With the house to myself, I covered ever available surface with brown bags and knitting kit production went into full swing for the summer season…

Last week was Ten Tors weekend here on Dartmoor. Ten Tors is an annual challenge in which teams of teenagers from all over the South West hike up to 55 miles over the rough terrain of Dartmoor, visiting ten nominated tors in under two days.
