Helvellyn knitting

A quick Sunday-evening post. Took my knitting walking this weekend — up Striding Edge to Helvellyn. Too cold to knit on the top, but here I am, after part of the descent, making yet another bootee near Grisedale Tarn:

As well as enjoying a superb day’s walking, some very good company, and fabulous surroundings, we also managed a visit to the wonderful Wool Clip women’s co-operative in Caldbeck, where I bought some undyed, handspun, Herdwick aran for a man-sweater, and some hand-dyed rasberry pink Shetland aran for me. Lovely!
