Fun Day

Today was a good day.

It involved penguin coffee and a huuuge pastry for breakfast. Henri's of Morningside makes massive tasty pastries. My favourite is a swirly chocolate one:

Lunch was a multitude of ice cream and toppings. It was fun being practically on the Royal Mile but totally cut off from the tourists! The views were impressive:

After ice cream I wandered through the Meadows and joined the Ravelry group knitting in the sunshine. Admittedly I wasn't knitting but I was finishing off my new jumper. I'm inordinately proud of my new (and first) jumper:

Pattern from Needled:

Tip of the day: carry a camera and the tourists will think you are one of them and *not* ask for directions :)


  1. Thats really cute! Is the cloud a pocket? Also the sleeves are lovely, you are very talented!

  2. It is indeed a pocket :) Perfect for keeping fingers cosy. It was a really fun pattern to knit!

  3. I love it! That's a very nice blue you chose.
