Remembrance Sunday

I have to confess that we had forgotten all about this and were heading off to the park when we came across the Remembrance Sunday march. So we stayed and listened to the service.

The piper was good and there was also a brass band. Glad we saw it really. Girls were thrilled to see all the soldiers and had lots of questions about it. They have poppies which they got at school this week. Will be having a 2 minute silence on Tuesday at work at 11 o'clock as well. (11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month and all that)

They were lucky with the weather too because about half an hour later the skies opened and it has absolutely thrown it down since.

Have finished my Waving not Drowning socks for the UK Sockknitters Nov Kal and will wear them for work tomorrow I think.

Pretty chuffed with how they turned out. Used Chameleon Colorworks Evolution yarn in a colourway called Taos. Was a gift from my last sock wars victim. Very nice too.

Thanks for sharing that Remembrance moment. The 11th - Vetrans Day here - is also my mother inlaw's birthday...

Lovely socks!
