And Happy Bank Holiday weekend , everyone. For once we seem set for some decent weather for the holiday weekend. In British terms this means , it won’t rain, or hail , or snow and for at least ten minutes a watery sun may appear. In this time garden furniture will be set out and the BBQ lit! And we will say what a glorious weekend it was. Us Brits know how to make the most of sunshine.
Here in Yorkshire, we have a cycling event, born out of the Tour de France which several years ago started here, we now have the Tour de Yorkshire. This will pass my way on Saturday afternoon.
The bunting is out.
Not just any bunting, Just any bunting would not be mentioned in a Knit and Natter post, no these are knitted cycling tops.
Aren’t they just so cute? I didn’t knit any, but I do admire those that did.
It’s been a busy week here what with one thing and another. The crochet jewel blanket had a few more rows added, the knitted scarf took a back step and I finished the left front and nearly all the right front of Little Miss F’s newest cardigan. All of which you have seen many times. So I thought I would share some rather nice knitting books that have come my way.
Now this one came from a book shop in Whitby. My DIL spotted it, and said I must go in and look at it. Well I did and out it came with me. The patterns are just adorable.
Now all I need is a new baby girl to knit for, as the patterns really are only for babies.
Last week I made mention of naughty Amazon who tempted me with knitting books to which I succumbed like a nitwit. They arrived.
Are they not amazing. Here’s an inside picture of one.
Now do you think I know a little girl who thinks her Nana can make anything might like one for her birthday in the Autumn? Or maybe she would prefer
A suitably Halloween creation? How about this person?
Fabulous or what?
I don’t think it is any wonder I fell for these three books. So I was wondering whether you had fallen for a book recently, knitting or otherwise that you just had to have, do tell, and do please feel free to leave a link if you posted about it.
Right I need to get on a bit, middle son and family coming for the weekend, well three of them are plus dog. Hurrah. Floors to be washed, food bought and lawns cut! Then cuddles for me.
Have a wonderful weekend,
