lovely news.

My friend has had her baby, a little girl.

Boo Hoo no acrylic 4ply yarn.....................yet.

We had 2 lots of rain...................................not enough but it is better than nothing.

The long scrappy socks are done and delivered. No photo as I finished them during a 10 minute pop in that escalated to a 90 minute chat a long.

The pdf pattern is on the fabric and cut out. I feel no need to "kiss and tell" as it could have just been my cack handedness.

I will, however, not buy any more from that designer, I will stick with Tilly and the Buttons. I have her first book and have sewn just about every pattern with no probs. I did not buy the new one as I am not keen on stretch clothes, that extra "cake room" is far too dangerous.

The dogs had all but 5 minutes of their walk in shade, the sun hid behind some clouds, and it was far better for them and me.

Dinner last night was a green Thai curry, stuffed full of veg, and so Ab Fab.
We finished off the fruit crisp, or should I say that the crisp finished us off.

Tonight I will be making something up with mushrooms, courgettes
and sweet potatoes.
If the oven goes on I will make a SW quiche as well, in fact I will do that. I have some extra large eggs  and some bits of peppers that need using up.

If it keeps dry I will possibly be painting later, once the sun moves round.

There is some ironing, but not enough to drag everything out for. So there might be time for some sneaky knitting, I am half way through the heel increases on the latest socks.

That's all for now folks.

  1. Oh that is lovely news. I hope Mummy and baby are doing well.

    Good to hear that you got the PDF pattern sorted and can actually use it. They scare

    Have a lovely day.

  2. Lovely news indeed. I thought I had found 4 ply pink yarn in my stash but it’s actually baby DK so probably not what you are looking for. It’s King Cole varigated which was bought to make DD a scarf and she rejected it!

  3. Just wanted to say hello, and to let you know that I really enjoy your blog - you got me introduced to Arne and Carlos and they in turn got me back to knitting and crocheting which I haven't done since I was a teenager some odd 30 years ago... I was taught the "Norwegian" way of knitting growing up and I had sort of lost the knowledge, so Thank you! :-) I might just attempt knitting socks again thanks to you.


I love to read comments so take the plunge and join the conversation.
