I am very proud of myself for knitting the above items. I have never knitted with two colours and was very pleased and surprised with the results. I knitted them for friends and I had positive feedback from them. Thank you.


I made this for my niece. I actually finished it today. I am so pleased with it. It looks lovely in purple. I had knitted one previously in red and as much as I liked the red one I do prefer the purple one.

This blanket is the same design as the baby blue blanket.

cold and wet today

Well, what a weekend it has been. I started my weekend by doing my housework including ironing followed by going to lunch with a dear friend. That was great. We had a fabulous lunch, a good chat and a lot of laughing was had. It is so good to laugh. I came home and had a relaxing bath and chilled for the rest of the evening. Not a knitting needle and yarn in sight. :-) Today, I had a short lie in and decided I would have breakfast in bed and watch a movie: Think like a man. Great movie. I really didn't want to get out of bed but I finally did. I will be doing some knitting at some point today. Winter warmers are very popular at the moment.  Beanie hats and cabled thick scarves have been very popular.

Right! I am going to wrap up in my lovely knitted blanket (a wedding gift from friends) with a nice cup of green tea. xx

Lovely mittens. Perfect for those cold and wintry days.
This is a lovely red cabled chunky combined hat and scarf that I made for myself. It is knitted with merino chunky yarn, it is soft,warm and lovely on the skin. I love it.
