Uh oh, I've started a new blanket.
Since finishing my African flower blanket I'd made a couple of (since abandoned) attempts at other projects. I've discovered that amigurumi is just not for me (sorry, it's just so boring going round & round in dc and I always lose count of where I am) and my muddy sock yarn is also not exciting me much either.
So, inspired by Andrea at Apples and Pears I have begun making a jewel blanket.
I just fancied something simple and colourful to work on and which can be picked up/put down easily.
It's also very satisfying to be able to take daft photos of all the little colourful crocheted circles as I make them (notice I am crocheting/sewing in the ends as I go this time!)
While in the garden I couldn't resist taking a couple more photos of the tulips as they're just looking so gorgeous this year.
I've also bought a chicken!
Not a real one, just this little embroidered one from Snapdragon. It came with a lovely postcard and some great stickers.
Earlier this morning, as it was such a nice day I took N in the trailer for a bike ride along the cycle path to the loch.
Hazy sunshine across green fields.
My bike looks tiny against this enormous cycle sculpture.
The view of the loch from the bench where we ate our icecreams (a Flake cornetto for N and a Magnum double caramel for me).
We then met up with a friend and her little girl and went for a wander.
Photographing the lambs.
Feeding the ducks.
Then back home. Jackdaws perch on a gate as we leave the cycle path.
I think this lovely weather is to continue for a few more days, it would be fantastic if it lasted over the holiday weekend. I hope it's good wherever you all are too!
