.................And there was another week and we're now into October.......................
Today we have had a braai in the sunshine with my in-laws..........not bad going for the UK in October. It is my Father-in-law's birthday today, so we have all well and truly filled ourselves with good food. My poor hubby in the meanwhile is hauling our straw bales in before the rain comes and missed the whole thing.....ah, well we can all tell him how nice it was and he has a plate piled high with food when he turns in for the night.
This week, among lots of other things, I took my boys to a local newsagent, where they have a rack of acrylic at the back of the shop, and let them pick out some colours for a hat each.
Then when they chose their colours I made them change their minds to something more suitable!
Now there's a cheeky face eh!
Both hats were super-quick, although the dinosaur one probably needs a few extra bits, and middle's hat may well end up with a bobble on it. Both were Ravelry patterns which you can find here and here.
My granny stripe is growing well and looks more wonderfully stripey everyday.
So what does this week hold?
Well I treated myself when I was out with the boys yesterday to two new books, I never buy crochet books, and even now I am amazed I did, but sometimes it is nice to actually see something in print isn't it?
I am still feeling I was a little frivolous, but I could not resist the Christmas one and the other one came along for the ride
Anyway, I have a tonne of housework, washing, clearing...etc...etc...etc... to do and here I am rambling on again. I am looking forward to my Sunday evening of browsing through other people's blogs with a cup of tea in hand.
