I've started knitting again!!
Inspired by the lovely Lynda, of "hookin' with laa laa" I decided to knit myself a scarf, but not a plain one, one with reindeer's on, which was quite hard when I've never knit with two colours before!! But after a few goes I got the hang of it
but then I realised when I wore it the reindeers on one side would be upside down !!
So I had to pull these little chaps out and knit them upside down which took ages but eventually I managed to finish it and I must say I'm rather pleased with myself. I'm not sure I'd tackle another one but it's certainly got me back into knitting again.
I put a pattern in the middle as you wouldn't see the reindeers when you wear it
now I'm waiting for a cold blustery day to wear it, not that I'm wishing the summer away just yet as I have a week off work soon and am planning a few days out somewhere nice.
Thanks for all your comments on the "York" post, I put all your lovely names into the hat, well a mixing bowl actually, and the one pulled out was.... The vintage gardener,
here's Gill's little parcel.
Monday was my friend Barbara's "biggie" birthday so us girls went out for afternoon tea at Wynyard hall where we had tea in the library
there was big squashy armchairs and settee's to sit in and we got the full works delivered on lovely china
see those lovely big bunches of sunflowers
There was a wedding on and afterwards we had a little peek in the chappel, love the blue walls and the marble pillars
then we wandered down to the lake to see all the ducks and take more photos, it was one of those lazy afternoons where you just didn't want to leave.
Tonight we're going on a "bat" walk, you know the little furry kind? We have been before and Ian the chap who organises it brought along a common pipstrill bat for us to hold, he had to hand rear it as the mother had died, and it was only 1 1/2 inches long so we've got the detectors ready lets hope we hear loads of them!!
Love Lucey x
