These have to be some of the the cutest I've made. I just love the pretty colours! Yes, I know they are the easiest of easy, but I used Magic Loop for the first time, which I have to say will most definitely now be my first choice method for plain socks. I also tried to use the Continental method, but I have to say, I don't think it will become a favourite.

It's been a knitting free zone this weekend, as I have been to London to stay with my youngest daughter for the weekend and have some fun!

We set off for `borough Market nice and early to beat the crowds and enjoyed a lovely hour browsing and sampling the yummy food offerings to be had. Everything looked so fresh and appetising! I bought a piece of the Drunk Cheese ( last pic) for Mr Snoops. It's really delicious!

We walked along the South Bank on Saturday morning and by chance happened to be in the right place at the right time to catch the Red Arrows flying over for the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations. We had a perfect view!

We spent the rest of Saturday on and around the South Bank, doing what we do best.... mooching, coffee drinking, book shop and gallery browsing, people watching and generally enjoying each other's company! 

Our entertainment for the evening was provided by Femi Kuti at the Royal Festival Hall. He and his band and dancers were performing as part of the Guy Garvey 'Meltdown' festival. I love Afro beat music and we were not disappointed. It was brilliant!

Today, we spent time at the local garden centre, picking up some plants to make the younger Miss Snoops' garden look lovely! Who'd have thought she would have been interested in using her precious 'time' selecting and planting flowers! :-)

All in all it's been a really lovely weekend. I love family time!

Such SPLENDID stripes!! I love all the juicy colors, along with some "wild side" animal-like prints of the yellow, white and black blotches! LOVE seeing from your trip to LOVELY LONDON!! Oh, the food there... I feel so hungry now! Fun that you were there to see a bit from the Queen's celebrations. :) ((HUGS))

Looks like a fabulous weekend. Love visiting Borough Market when we are in London - all the breads and cakes are so tempting!! Your photo of the Red Arrows is brilliant! Impressed with those socks too, and I reckon if you persist, you'll find the Continental knitting gets easier! xx
