Knit and Natter Friday
Despite the restrictions on normality, I am finding plenty of things to do and enjoy. I completed the crochet granny square lap blanket I was making in response to the request for some for local care homes. Having unearthed a larger than expected stash of yarn I was happy to make one. Now apparently one care home has said please could they have some single sized blankets-can you guess what I am crocheting now?
Duly delivered a week ago, and it just so happened that it was near my new favourite spot… that hill fort!
Next to a water trough, you can’t beat a good gate photo in my opinion.
And also spotted on the walk this caterpillar which to my mind looks just like the Hungry Caterpillar, but whether he will be a beautiful butterfly or a horrible moth I don’t know- hoping someone might know.
Our son suggested we join them for a family walk to the Cotswold Water Park. Now I have seen the sign for this park on numerous occasions, including when we lived in Oxfordshire for nine years. I had wrongly, it turns out, assumed it was a theme park. I feel very silly indeed. It’s lakes and walks and canal paths and loveliness.
We parked at Neigh Bridge and walked round the lake – twice- once clockwise and once anti-clockwise, because we’d paid for the car park.
As you do- well we did.
I took this pic for Yarn Along but to date there hasn’t been one this month- I can always edit this later if needed. Th elink has come up just as I posted this – Yarn Along can be found
The book was lent to me by the same son, and the knitting…….well
When I unpacked I unearthed the yarn and pattern for something I had totally and I mean completely and absolutely forgotten about , and it’s really quite a nice colour, and for once it is for me.
Not quite sure what the next month will bring, well none of us do. We had the grandchildren round fot a bit this week. Master T said I always find a positve side to everything his Daddy says so. Now I think if that’s true I am very lucky, and I will look for more silver linings this week.
Have you had any silver linings in your week- love to know.
