England, A Boat and Heligan

Against all expectations, England won the football match this evening, in the penalty shoot out.  We are delighted!

We watched the match with the Munich contingent of our family reunion in their holiday chalet where this piece of art had pride of place. They leave tomorrow, so our three weeks of family time finally comes to an end. What a lovely time we have all had together.

Regular readers may remember that I knitted some blue squares recently. They were for the WildWork’s 100:UNEARTH production which started this evening and runs until  22 July, The knitted torpedo stands by the Well at Heligan  as part of the commemoration of the finish of WW1, 100 years ago. The torpedo was chosen as a symbol for the vast amount of knitting women and children did during WW1 and to commemorate the fact that women made many of the munitions used.
