Socks and Skating

Hello Folks!

I promised you another finished project and here they are.
Not that exciting I know, but they are hand dyed alpaca ~ by me ~ and very toasty warm.  These have been hanging around for a bit as well ~ year or so? ~ so it's good to get them finished.
I now need to crack on with my Temari Cardi and then I have a new project bubbling away in my head.

This morning Mr Clicky and me took Master Clicky to our local skate park, Rush.  Three neighbours'  kids came as well.   Rush is next to the Stroud Water Canal in an old warehouse.
Master Clicky took his scooter, but you can ride BMX or skateboards too.
 It is brilliantly decorated....
....with lots of space to ride, rails, steps and even a street!

 That's him in mid-air!
He had a brilliant time and wants to return.

This is our next door neighbour on his skateboard!
 All in a blur.
Whilst the skating was going on I crocheted a flower as I'm in the Spring Swap run by Jo at Three Stories High.  I just need to get a brooch back and then it'll be ready.

Righto, I'm off now, have a great week.

  1. Is the skate park new? I had visions of you knitting whilst skating, but I am almost as impressed by your clever dying skills! Excellent action photography too!! Looking forward to seeing the new project idea. Fiona x

    1. Yes it is new, in Brimscombe Port. No hope of me skating! The 8 year olds would show me up!

  2. Impressive dying results, Mrs. C!!! And brave Olympians in training? Hoping your week is wonderful :) xx

    1. Funnily enough, Mr Clicky said to me, "Snowboarders of the future here."

  3. I don't know how many hours I have spent at skate parks, I showed Master M the photos a and he said looks like a great park.

  4. Your socks are amazing.. and you dyed the yarn yourself? Wow! The skate park looks lots of fun. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  5. Hi there, Jo from Three Stories High has matched us up for the brooch swap, which I am very excited about! Sorry that I haven't been in touch before, you might have noticed from my blog that I haven't been able to be around for the last couple of weeks. Anyway, here I am now! Can you e-mail me and then we can chat about the swap and exchange addresses and so on? Looking forward to hearing from you. Amy xx


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
