Hello there! We came back from Pickering on Friday to find our Magnolia tree had begun to flower. It's so beautiful.
Can't believe it's Sunday evening again and two glorious weeks of Easter holidays have come to an end. It's back to school tomorrow :(. I've had a really lovely two weeks, pottering, knitting, crocheting, holidaying, dog walking, enjoying family, countryside, sunshine, good food and ale. Can't expect it to go on forever, but it would be nice! It's been relaxed and stress free; good for the soul!
- So, here's the knitting........
This is the first of my 'Rainbow' socks. The yarn is leftover from the little Rainbow baby jacket. There's a link to the pattern in my last post. The Trekking XXL yarn is gorgeous to work with and the pattern very easy to memorise.
The second sock may take a little longer to cast on and complete as I don't have any more long car journeys planned until the summer. Captive knitting time!
'Special Baby' is due to make her appearance next month and I still have the 'Special Ripple Blanket' to complete. Sue, from 'Mrs Twins' asked me how it was getting on, a couple of weeks ago. Well, this weekend, on return from Pickering I suddenly realised how much there still was to do! HELP! Luckily, the sun has been shining and the garden has beckoned. Jobs done, sun out, .......
- ........ here's the crochet!
It's about two thirds complete now and then there will be all those ends to sew in. I did start off doing them as I went along, but needless to say, it didn't last long.
I am hoping to complete it by next Sunday evening! I have to crochet at a rate of at least two stripes each evening hmmmmm!
- Here's the countryside..... Pickering, in North Yorkshire...
We visited Castle Howard and spent the day in the beautiful grounds.
Oscar had a great time too....
In fact, it's been a really, really lovely two weeks. Not long until the summer!
Let's hope for a sunny week :)
