Knitting, Lavender and A Blue House

05 Jul

1   In Penzance this morning, it amused me to see the Ice-cream seller knitting quite a complicated pattern while waiting for customers.

2   We were on a fascinating Guided walk with Anna through Penzance and it wasn’t easy to stop for photos. This little lavender container caught my eye at one of our stops.

    Being a novice knitter, I cannot imagine how I would mess up that pattern if just one customer came up and distracted my attention!

    So, you we’re out and about pirating the streets of Penzance again. I remember the other posts. Guided walking tours, are fantastic, those not on a time schedule even better. But your probably like I, the eye of camera always wishes for more time, so you will always find us lagging behind. Have not been left behind -at least yet.

    I’d find it very hard to pass up an ice cream cone sold by a lady who knits -now that’s street level marketing wisdom on her part. I can imagine the conversations.

    “Pardon me, where did you get that ice cream cone”
    “Down and around, from the women who knits”
    “Thank you, I’m off to get ‘me’ one of those”.

    Thank you for another taste of Penzance.

    One would want to wait until she finished a row before ordering. 🙂

    Can you retrace the guided tour with your camera? I am trying to place the blue house photo, do those steps run up from the inner harbour?

    She must get quite a bit of knitting done while waiting for customers 🙂

      I’d love to have a blue house but ours is stone and it wouldn’t be right to paint it. I bet yours was lovely. 🙂
