Well, I'm being a (tired) early bird this morning, getting my update done before the start of a busy day. We are out to a family lunch, and with church first, time is limited to sit in front of the computer.....however, I will be sat with cup of tea in hand, reading everyone elses progress this evening.
This is my ten-stitch twist which I took to the beach yesterday, while the children played......I think I'm getting very brave, as I do have a little bit of a 'thing' about sand getting near my yarn.....but yesterday I couldn't pass up the window to knit.
This is it again this morning, a little further along. I have to say, I'm not sure I will have the patience to make a blanket, as although easy, I'm finding it a bit slow......I am kept going with the changing colours, which always make things more interesting, but unlike crochet, it isn't instantly gratifying. The pattern is simple and clever, the way I like it....... maybe it's just my technique isn't as slick as it should be.
This is really all I've been working on this week, a little dabbling of my toes into some simple crochet, but I've definitely had my 'knit head' on, in the main.
We've had beautiful sunshine these past few days and have loved it......farming and sunshine brings on the mad dash to get the crops in, so yesterday the combine harvester turned up to cut our winter barley.
This is a photo after a small break down (this too, is typical and is all part of the fun of harvesting time!) which with a drill, some hammering and a bit of blue air, was soon fixed .
As the combine was on stop, it was very difficult to dissuade two small boys to leap into the cab....it was brief and highly supervised though as my hubby and our neighbour had their fixing-fingers in the header at the time.
Well.....as ever, thank you for all your lovely comments from last week....I'm looking forward to catching up this evening, when boys are tucked up and all the days events are done....probably with a bit of the Olympics in the background.....who knew it would be such addictive viewing!
Have a great week.x
