Knit and Natter Friday.

So last weekend the garden was full of snow and a pheasant came to visit.

Then on Sunday it rained overnight and the snow was all gone on Monday. So I treated myself to some daffs.

Then yesterday it did this.

More than a little tired of snow now. Spring ,please. It has gone again today and the sun is shining. Is it Spring? How do the frogs know not to wake up yet, last year they arrived in February, I’ve not seen  a leg or heard one croak yet.

I have been tucked up indoors , and doing family history research. I am amazed at how an entire afternoon can vanish and just how excited I get if I find something new. You won’t believe how excited one person can get at the thought of two death certificates on their way and a nice kind man who says he will help me find an unmarked grave in Leeds, he has a map.

I didn’t succumb to my squishy parcel. Instead I have knitted a bit on the navy cardigan which now looks like this.

Just the buttonhole band and the collar to knit, then sew it up, choose buttons. Now there is another ridiculous thing I get excited about – choosing buttons. Then the squishy bag of yarn shall be mine, another thing to get ridiculously excited about.

Which makes me wonder , what things does everyone else get rather over excited about?

Plans for your weekend, any interesting things occurring, or a lovely quiet weekend?

I shall be happy if I can just go outside for a few minutes without freezing the matronly bits!

Have a great weekend whatever you do, please join in the natter in the post, it really is the best bit.

Be Happy,

Knit and Natter Friday!

We had snow yesterday.

Not a lot, but enough to keep me indoors, in my “office” reading and knitting.  The  Secret Santa knitting is going well.

Gloves are done, a bit plain in this picture but do not fret , I have added some pretties, however the first person to see them will be the lady who has been a good girl and deserves a nice squishy Christmas present.

Tell me how dense can partners be? I received a catalogue from The RSPB this week, full of goodies to do with birds. OH LOOK , I said thrusting it towards husband. They do a book of Knitted birds, how lovely is that, I would love a copy.

Three days later. Mr E says, ” Have you had any ideas for something you would like for Christmas?” Some days I realise I am just making noises and talking to myself.

Not only did we have snow but I am also full of a cold right now, and so hoping I will be well enough for the four and half hour drive to Wales to see my Mum and brother tomorrow. I am leaving Mr E in charge of the house, I have scheduled Tuesday for fettling said house on my return.

The crochet blanket has taken a bit of a back seat this week, as I am half way through knitting a matching hat to go with the gloves. Once again thanks for everyone’s help with the blanket project. It shall be done this year.

This Year- how quick did that vanish?

Meantime  the lovely Kate had a giveaway and this came through the post, thank you Kate,

Two lovely pieces of fabric. I must not just look at them and save them for a rainy day. I must make something with them, maybe cloakroom curtains or a cushion or a bag for my beach towel and paraphernalia. At the moment they are adorning a chair so I can look at them. Any ideas? Part of me does not want to cut them, but that is just silly.

The new French Windows should have been put in yesterday but this was put back to Wednesday next week. Oh life  has such a way of throwing plans out of the window. Tis only a door though, and worse things have happened, especially as it would have been very chilly with the snow and all that.

Meantime Nephew and Wife are expecting baby number 2 in June. Whoopee, more yarn required! 2018 will be ok.

Hope you all have a great weekend, please do share your plans, especially seasonal plans, above all

Be Happy,

Cathyx
