Scavenger Hunt

I've won something!

Hello all, hope you've had a good week.
Despite that horrible rain I talked about last Sunday, it has been here, 
as in most of Britain boiling.
I've spent some time in the garden in my steamer chair just enjoying it.

I've had a couple of nice surprises this week.
1.  Leah from Faith's Craft Box nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award.
Thank you!  I will post later in the week, I need a bit of time to think of the answers!
2.  I won the giveaway that Tickety Boo was running!
What a lucky girl I am!

I've watched some more Rugby World Cup (although I'm not impressed by England's performance so far) and finished my Zooming scarf.
Our South Sea Island head ~ the perfect model ~ looks quite cosy doesn't he?
As promised the pictures of my Montague Vest.  I'm sooooo pleased with it.
Made in Rowan Little Big Wool which I got in a half price sale.
I love the lace pattern and the fit is really nice.
Whilst I've been in the garden I did a bit of a crochet
 (it's not all been snoozing you know)
these are the latest 'set'.
I've become quite systematic about I how make the squares, this is the total amount I can make with red and lime green adding each one of the other nine colours for the middle.
Now, I want opinions please, you see the pink centre on the  bottom right?  What do you think about the colour?
 You can see it in my crochet bag on the left.  
I feel meh about it.

I've got my friendship squares sent.  The red is not as dark as it looks here.
A few flowers from the garden.  
 and a Marigold, both self-seeded.

Well I'm off now, no ironing tonight, I did that whilst watching the rugby this morning, so just lots of knitting.
Bye for now..................Clicky Needles.


  1. I actually quite like the pink in your crochet but if you feel iffy about it I would leave it out.

    Congratulations on winning the giveaway.

    This weather has been glorious back to rain this week though me thinks and the normality of autumn.

    Have a lovely week.

  2. I too am quite liking the pink in your crochet squares, I think it just comes down to personal preference. Love all your finished knitting, especially the Montague Vest.

    Congratulations on the giveaway win,

  3. Sounds like you've had a lovely week with winning things and finishing projects! Your vest looks stunning on your :) Perfect fit! And the pin you have sets it off very well. As with the ladies above, I think the pink looks fine, but if you think you'll be unhappy with it in the end, don't hesitate to pull it from the bag. Let us know what you decide!

  4. I'd go with the meh feeling for the pink - it's a nice colour on it's own but doesn't seem to fit with the other cooler blues and warmer reds/purples in the centres.

    L O V E the montague vest - well done on a gorgeous FO x

  5. I like the pink colour, but it's all down to personal choice. I've found it really hard this weekend to pick up my crochet or knitting without getting sweaty hands in this heat. Your Montague Vest is gorgeous, lovely colour.

  6. Um I don't quite think the pink goes too well, but it is personal choice. What was the give-away at Tickety Boos? But as they say you have got to be init to winnit! You'll be OK for warm clothes now with winter coming on sooon they say. dojo x

  7. I just love your vest.. you have a wonderful slim figure! Congrats on TBs giveway.. what was the prize?
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
