Scavenger Hunt

Sunday, 17 January 2016


Hello folks.

Well it stopped raining for 2 days and we had some frost.  Both mornings I forgot to factor in car scraping time, so was a bit later to work than I wanted to be.  Unlike other areas of the country today, we've had no snow, just gloom.  Cold miserable fog.  This poor old robin doesn't look to cheery does he?  Not to worry, the rain will be back soon, I'm sure.
Master Clicky let me off rugby duty today.  He said he didn't mind if I didn't go to watch his match, they would loose anyway.  Miss Clicky informed him, they'd definitely loose if that was his attitude but as it was, the prediction came true.  
Whilst the boys were away I went through all my clothes drawers and had a massive try on, sort out and ruthless bin of things I don't wear.  It was all very cathartic.  I now need a charity bag to pop through the door.  Next week ,The Wardrobe.

Despite the gloom I got some pictures of my Daybreak Shawl.  I started this back in June last year (!) and finally got round to sewing the ends in over Christmas.   I should have carried the main colour up the edges and then would just have the contrast to sew in.  I didn't.  There we go.
 The yarn, baa ram ewe Titus, is a joy to work with and I love the finished result.  Having said that, I didn't really get on with the pattern.
 I got some of the points to stay, some didn't.  That I suspect, was due to me not increasing enough or increasing too often.
 All that said, I love the yarn, colours and finished result.  
 Stripes! what's not to like?
Speaking of stripes, my fabulous stripy cardigan is on the finishing stages.  I've finished both sleeves now and I'm on the button band. :-).
Well that's me for now, I hope you have a good week.

See you soon.......Clicky Needles.
