Success, stars and WIP Wednesday

From yesterday:

1) Before we head to the supermarket, I make a decision to bribe the kids… “If I can take you round the supermarket with no arguments, then we’ll go past the bakery counter and you can choose something for afternoon tea…”. It worked. By the time we reach the car park, they have decided whose pushing the trolley when with almost military precision. The result: perfectly behaved kids, a trolley safely pushed with no arguments, and a yummy afternoon tea (doughnuts being the item of choice) when we got home.

2) It was a warm clear night, with perfect views of the stars above.

3) I’ve finally started on the next of my twelve projects from Debbie Bliss’s book The Knitter’s Year. For my first Autumn project, I’m knitting the Oddments Knitting Bag. I love the stripes, and it’s a quick and easy knit, with the striping adding just enough interest to keep the garter stitch from becoming boring. I also like the way the decreases create the angles on the bag 🙂 .

As you can see here, I’ve completed the first side. Casting on for side two is next on the list…
