A Jungle Holiday

A holiday would do us all good, they said.
Why not go somewhere new?
A change is as good as a rest.
Recharge your batteries.

Monty had always wanted to go to The Conservatory; maybe stay near the The Pond and do some swimming. We could relax in the tropical heat, climb up to The Windowsill and see the view, explore the jungles of The Pot Plants.

That’s all very well if you’re staying in a posh hotel, with all needs catered for, but we’re camping.
For me, this ‘holiday’ is about trying to care for the family in a place that’s more difficult than usual. There’s far too much daylight and it’s baking hot so nobody can sleep. I haven’t a clue how to cook the food here, there’s nothing I recognise.
If you ask me, holidays away just mean upset stomachs, exhaustion and nowhere to hang your washing. We’re going to need a holiday when we get home.

This jumper was brought to you by Hannah Sanguinetti, working with: John Arbon Knit by Numbers merino double knit in shade KBN 19 on 4mm double-pointed needles, paper collage, ink and brush.

I am lucky enough to have a fantastic yarn shop on my road, Be Inspired Fibres, and this acts as my extended yarn stash. All of my yarn for this project is sourced from this beautiful shop. For those of you who don’t have a yarn shop near by, why don’t you come to the Edinburgh Yarn Festival this March? There is more yarn than you can possibly imagine, and you could pop in to Red Box and take a look at my red jumpers too.

You can go and see this jumper as of TODAY on display as a table-number bottle in Red Box Coffee, 2-6 Spottiswoode Rd, Edinburgh EH9 1BQ. And if you can’t see it out, ask the staff!
