Well, going through this week's photos, I have about ten posts worth of pics to share, but not many of them are yarny, so it would all be very off topic!
My ten stitch twist is still lurking in the background, although it hasn't had as much love this week as previous weeks.
At the beginning of the week, I finished off my Not So Big Snowy Owl
What a nice knit, a few new skills learnt, mainly using DPNs, which turned out ok.....lots more practise needed though!
I also learnt Kitchener stitch, using the brilliant tutorial on Purl Bee webpage.....this is super clever, and although mine is not perfectly neat, its hard to see where it starts or ends, which I'm guessing is the idea!
I am enjoying some knitting break on a new crocheted blanket, following Little Woollie's crochet-a-long, but this isn't strictly on my YOP list....ooopppss.
Anyway, totally off-topic, yesterday was our friends' daughter's first birthday, and the barmy parents asked if I would make The Cake.....no pressure.....all turned out well....but I was completely stressed out!
As well as The Cake, I made about 50 vanilla cupcakes and a batch of mini rose-flavoured cakes....oh, and a batch of malteser squares, as it would be rude not to, wouldn't it?!
The party was just perfect, and despite it being a bleak morning, the sun came out and everything was just glorious.....such a lovely afternoon....remembered for many years to come I'm sure......if I ask our friends, I will share some more pics in another post.
As I said it has been a busy week, lots of things to tell, but I may be pushing myself with so many non-YOP pictures! I would like to share just one though, taken at the beginning of the week, when we all enjoyed a day out in a beautiful garden.
Middle and Littlest boy enjoying the sunshine and freedom, in such a beautiful garden...........isn't this how everyday should be when you're a kid?
Another full day, making the most of seeing our far-flung friends all visiting for yesterday's party....post-party beach afternoon today....so sometime this evening when all has settled, I will look forward to catching up with everyone else....thanks for your lovely comments....how wonderful you all are!
Hope you all have some carefree moments in your weeks.x
