Another week has flown by.
I'm not sure where time goes.
The first thing to show you are the squares that I've received in the Friendship Blanket Swap I'm taking in part in on the Phoenix Forum. I've decided that I'm going for a blue blanket and these lovely squares arrived this week.
We're making 2 squares a month for a specific person. These are the ones I sent, also this week.
With those out of the way I picked up this blue aran yarn. It was given to me in a swap quite some time ago but I really didn't know what to do with it. It's Lorna's Laces Bullfrogs and Butterflies, a wool and mohair mix.
I cast on last night...............
............and finished this afternoon. It probably took 3 hours all in all. The yarn really is lovely and although described as solid you can see it has variations in the blue. DD is modelling it and may be keeping it ~ I'm not sure.
It certainly won't be for me because (as you can see from my pic) I've curly hair and hats and me do not mix (and I don't need them because I'm so well insulated with the hair!)
I have finished another project which has been on the needles for far too long because I decided I didn't like the pattern and oh, it didn't fit me :-( (I'm keeping somebody in suspense over this one) ~ it's blocking right now so no pics at the moment but I will get some on asap.
DS had another lovely day at rugby ~ I'm not sure if the team won or lost but he certainly needed a shower when he got in!
I know this is an unusual occurrence but as the kids are getting bigger we can leave them for a bit and indulge in the company of good friends. We went to a local pub called the Weighbridge Inn where they make a
2 in 1 pie.
On one side you get cauliflower cheese and on the other whatever filling you like. I had beef and mushroom, it's topped off with melt-in-the-mouth pastry which I have no idea how they make but is sheer heaven.
Yummy, yummy, yummy.
Anyway I need to have a bit of a think about what I'm going to cast on next for the 'big' project, my Flip-Top Gloves being the 'small' thing.
Hope your week is a good one.
Bye for now......Clicky Needles.
P.S. I have just read this post back and found loads of grammatical errors. The fingers aren't typing what the brain says.
Let me apologise I think I've changed them all now.
