I did consider not posting this week, as I've been dilly-dallying, running here-there-everywhere and generally not really achieving much.
Last week's update caused some differences in opinion over which blanket was better suited for my cousin's new baby. I must admit to carrying on with the pale green shell-stitch blanket, as I still feel that knowing the mother and it being her first baby, the plainer blanket would suit better. However, I will buy some more stylecraft and finish the other one too as I do love bright and colourful!
I also showed you the start of a cat (please note I said cat, this may prove useful later) the pattern taken out of a book borrowed from the library.
I mentioned last time how much I LOVE this yarn, it is Juniper from Sirdar (in mulberry) and it is divine! It is thick and thin and swirly and multicoloured....it is also in short supply....if only I had enough to make a garment out of it....... I have maybe 6 or so balls left but it doesn't seem to go far.....maybe when the weather gets cooler in the autumn I will make a cowl.
Hmmmm......can you guess what it is.......
I'm afraid it is not really as it should be....but hey-ho, it was fun to make and it is beautiful to look at!
Our week of birthday celebrations for biggest boy culminated in a bowling party last night with a group of friends.....phew I'm relieved that is over!
Today we've been enjoying the sun again....and it seemed we weren't the only ones.
This young lamb was taking full advantage of the sunshine and a relaxed mummy......our lambing is just about over now and the weather has been very kind to us. Our normal season of lambing seems to throw everything at us, even a bit of snow a couple of years ago.
D'you know I really do enjoy to read your opinions, having other people's creative input is invaluable....thank you all.....
Anyway, to catch up with other year of project work, please check out the Ravelry page here.
