The sun shone today! So we snuck off early, kite and scooters in the boot of the car, to the coast. More precisely to Aldeburgh, home to this…
It’s great for climbing on and every visit prompts a discussion about the quote that is inscribed around the edge…
“I hear those voices that will not be drowned” from Peter Grimes the Benjamin Britten opera. Britten was a resident in Aldeburgh for many years and is buried in the local church cemetery. Incidentally, the sculpture itself was engineered by an Aldeburgh family firm… and one of the family members just happens to be a very very talented knitter & friend of mine 😉
The outing was also perfect for one of the latest projects ‘off the needles’. After wearing my Agnes pretty much non-stop since finishing it, a request was received for a ‘man version’. Happy to oblige I cast on with the much loved Lopi and with pretty amazing alacrity Monsieur Agnes was complete!
Perfect for beach lounging on a slightly chilly Spring day. I followed the basic instructions for the largest size and added extra length in the body and a longer welt below the pockets. It worked out fine!
Just the thing for kite-flying. Complete with cheeky contrasting pockets to keep precious beach treasure safe in…
Known locally as ‘Hag’ stones, if you string them through the hole and hang them up outside doors and windows, they are reputed to ward off witches!
(His & Hers – ssshhh, no one will notice 😉 )
With the sun dipping behind the shell and a piece of locally caught fish wrapped up for supper we had one last game of ‘see how many pebbles you can whizz off the shell’ before heading home.
The new Season is almost upon us… I can feel it in the air.
