Hello there, hope you are having a wonderful day.
My mum knitted my cousins daughter a little purple jumper, well naturally she has to have a hat to compliment the jumper.
Three attempts to do this…….THREE, I lost count the first time and I had too many stitches, (is it stitches, or chain with crochet?) then the second time it was way too big, so third time lucky….I hope, I used a smaller hook, so now it is done ready to be picked up tomorrow….fingers crossed it fits her head, cos it is a surprise so I had to wing it size wise.
Of course I have to do an update on my blanket, I can’t help myself, cos I am still head over heels in love with it.
98 rows so far and probably at least another 98 to go, if not more, I want to make it a square one. You girls who have the Stylecraft Special DK will know the true vibrancy of these colors and I still bang on about how soft and unacrylic it feels……..
I made myself a mug of coffee and grabbed a bag of crisps and two after dinner mint biscuits that I made the other day, this was my lunch, disgusting really. The coffee tastes ‘off’ maybe it is the cream I put in it (really disgusting, I’m such an oink, oink) I will redeem myself tonight when I have roast turkey drumsticks with loads of roast and steamed veg.
Just had to leave for a few mins, had to hang up the washing, whilst I was up I tipped the coffee down the sink and made a cup of tea instead. Domestics have a habit of getting in the way of blogging don’t they..
I have said in the past that I would never show a photo of me again, well I have relented, I’m a woman, I can change my mind……..it’s only because my daughter was doing a photography assignment and she needed me to model (ooh, get me) for her and some of the photos turned out ok. I was laughing quite a bit because the sun was so bright and I was trying not to blink etc. anyhow this me in May when we still had some lovely warm weather, I have my ‘Bad Alice’ t-shirt on, I love it, but it is getting a few holes in it now 😦
We had to be very inventive with lighting, that is a table-cloth behind me drapped over the fence, then we had it drapped over the clothes horse in front of me and another one on the ground to get a bit of up light reflection going, no wonder I couldn’t keep a straight face, we were at it for a good while, she had to learn about lighting in this assignment.
Well my lovely ones, I am going to continue on with my blanket before the troops get home and want feeding, love you and leave you.
