Oh no! Just look at all those horrible ends. Not a pretty sight! I have to say, I do not relish the thought of sewing them all in. I did start off with all good intentions and for about the first twelve or so colour changes, I sewed in every couple of rows. Didn't last long though! The blanket still isn't quite ready yet. I still have yarn and think I'll carry on for a few more inches yet. Really, I cast on too many stitches and so, the blanket is going to be a downward ripple rectangle, if that makes sense. So, to compensate I'm going for a fatter rectangle :). THEN, I'll sew in the ends.
Yesterday, was glorious and after completing all my housey jobs in the morning, I sat in the garden ALL afternoon........ not feeling the least bit lazy or guilty, may I add........ and made this little 'Rainbow Bird'.
I think he's rather cute! The design is from Lucy's 'Attic24'. The tutorial is clear and very straightforward. He only took about three hours and was a very enjoyable 'make'. I took ages deciding on the best colour and size for his eyes....
I think I'll be making more! So, 'what's with the socks?' You may ask.
Well, to be honest, it's been a pretty relaxed weekend really. This morning I put my feet up (in my London Marathon supporter, Sport Relief socks) to watch the London Marathon. Our eldest daughter's boyfriend was running his first ever distance run of any kind!!!
Yippee! He made it!! Along with his sister. A great achievement.
Oscar's had a relaxed weekend too. His favourite puppy soft toy is nearly loved to bits... well, I think it's 'loved'! Anyway, he was exhausted after the fun.
It's been pretty dull and wet most of the day, over here on the east side of the country. Just the last hour or so though, the sun has come out and given us a wonderful, warm, April evening.
Let's hope the sun keeps shining. Have a great week!
