How refreshing.

Despite being woken up very early with thunderstorms it was lovely to be cool again. Its been raining on and off all morning and its feels very refreshing, I can almost here the garden breathe a sigh of relief.

As I was awake I decided to get up and do a spot of early morning knitting and podcast watching. I am still working on my test knit and really want to get it finished.


I actually managed to get the body cast off this morning so its just the sleeves and button band. I cant capture the colour but it is a gorgeous golden yellow. Its a short version with a short of waterfall front. Something I would never wear normally but I am feeling the yellow tones lately. I have decided that if, upon finishing I don't think I will wear the cardigan, I am a fickle creature being a fat woman, the yarn is far too nice to hide away  so I will rip it and reknit into another garment that I will wear.  I am having one of those body versus clothing moments.  Lockdown led me to a style of comfort dressing so now I am going out and about I'm struggling with what to wear and that I feel comfortable in. The extra lockdown and working from home weight gain  is not helping at all.

This also happened this week


I had my hair cut short ! 

This may well be a contributing factor to the clothing issue, I feel bare... it was down past my shoulders, now people can see my neck and shoulders it feels very weird, but also feels cool and fresh. I was starting to feel like I had a pair of boring long grey curtains on my head  and the daily washing after swimming was making it quite dull. I'm sure it will be fine when I get used to it.

  1. I do enjoy the summer days but it's been far too hot for me just lately, I'm enjoying it being cool again. No rain yet here though. I bet it was nice having shorter hair through the heatwave. I really need to book a haircut, I don't go to the hairdressers very often, I usually let it grow and then have a good amount taken off when I do eventually go. I love the colour of the cardigan, I'm a yellow lover too.

  2. How brave to have your hair cut short - the back looks a nice inverted cut which will be cool and easy to manage - if you feel a bit naked, you could always wear a little cotton scarf until you get used to it! Thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. I think your hair looks lovely, that's a nice style. The golden yellow colour of your cardigan is very nice. We've not had any rain here and it's still too hot for me. I woke early and there was a nice cool breeze coming through the open window but sadly the breeze has disappeared and it's unbearably hot again.

  4. Your hair looks great. I expect you're glad of a shorter style in this hot weather, and it will be so much easier to wash and dry after swimming. X
