Thanks for popping over and having a peek at what I've been up to.
I decided to challenge myself this week and try something completely different, it dawned on me the other day that I had never used a 4ply yarn, to be honest it scared me a little, I was worried that it would be too delicate and fiddly and above all time consuming ( I do get bored quite easily) .
I love wearing scarves though and have seen some really pretty ones on Ravelry, so I took the plunge and found a beautiful pattern , you can find it here.
I can't believe how easy, enjoyable and quick it was to make. After the first 6 rows it was just a case of repeating 2 rows over and over again until I reached the desired length. I'm itching to do another in a different colour, but will have to wait as I have a few hat and bootie orders to do.
I was delighted to find this weekend that things were beginning to grow in the garden....
...... some yummy strawberries. I will be keeping a close eye on these, as last year a certain little girl picked them all whilst they were still green and ate the lot.
Ooh whats this hiding amongst the leaves.......
......he he he, it's a tiny courgette!!!
I've also noticed this morning that I have some blossom growing on the tomato plants, how exciting !
WARNING !!! If a child's play slide clearly states for over 5's only there is a reason why.
Oops , bad parent, thought she would be o.k with Lucie.
Well caught Lucie !! I will add she didn't go down the whole slide like this, she only fell off Lucie's knee on the last turn, and guess what she wanted to go "wheeeee, again, again" .
Just to prove she wasn't hurt in any way, these photo's were taken later on in the day....
....still the most adorable perfect face, not a slide burn in sight.
