Been a hectic week all round, trying to do the catch up patterns for the GRANNY SQUARES and the FLOWERS wk 9, 10 and 11 so that I am not behind......
SO OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS I SHOUD HAVE ALL 6 PATTERNS POSTED........
With Phil not being well and at home, there have been lots of get well phone calls and lots of visitors and lots of insurance forms to fill in too, holding up the pattern creation, he is well on the mend now, although still very tired, we are going for short walks to build up his lung strength.
He says thanks for all the get well messages xx.
Holiday crochet....I managed a short sleeve and started to work down the front, not great progress, but we had so much to do on board.
A 2 round, 2 Colinette Ribbon motif joined in a hexagon shape......not sure who's bum that is in the picture, lol
The 3 motifs on the left are the beginning of the front opening and on the right you can see the short sleeve.
Added a few more motifs to the red piece too....
While on holiday I also managed to read two more of CHRISTINA JONES'
wonderful books, almost caught up with all her books, just a couple left to read.
The cruise was great until Phil was taken ill, and that bit I wont dwell on, not a great experience.
The food was fabulous on board, the crew were wonderful, terrific shows, a great ship and the weather was suny although a bit breezy at sea.
We did 3 trips, which we and a lot of people thought were a bit rushed.
We found a fantastic shoe shop on La Palma....beautiful shoes in every colour and in Morocco I loved and bought a couple of pairs of the Embroidered slippers.
I will do a post with pctures about the holiday asap.
I AM KNITTING TOO....very slowly hehe!
Not a keen knitter at all.....but I have promised to make my son James a
cardy in navy blue for his Birthday in April....crossing everything that I will finish it in time, definitely a daytime project though.
Watched a you tube video and thought this isn't right!!!! Wanted to give up at this stage, but watched a second much better video and thought it an easy, all be it slow stitch for me.
Thanks Sue and Richard for all the help, I am still trying to get the samples done (oh! boy am I a slow knitter!) so James hasn't been able to choose between the Cashmere or the Cashmerino yet....the cashmere is beautifully soft but the cashmerino is a little easier for me as an inexperienced knitter.
He had every Navy blue they had out to look at and compare lol.
Catching up slowly
Hugs to all x
