Easter holidays are here, HOORAY! I love my job but I do love the holidays as well! I started today in my PJs with chocolate croissants, a latte and a magazine. Heaven!
Well, as soon as I got it out of the bag it was on the hook and I have completed my first wearable item! I just love the feel of it and yes, I know, it is now the wrong time of year for a scarf, but I couldn't help myself!
The pattern said to chain 160 but this seemed a little short and I wanted to be able to wrap it around my neck at least once so I chained 200. I hadn't considered that this would require more yarn and got quite panicky on the last round when I was running short. However a small adaption to the pattern and I finished it with 2" of yarn to sew in!!!
It is very pretty but not as large as the original and a little too deep to post without getting squashed, so I think I'm going to have to try and sell it on eBay.
***************I have really enjoyed viewing other blogger's photos of their garden's. I love gardening, used to practically live out there before having the children, but these days have to settle for short bursts of time and sharing my space! What was once my sole domain has slowly been infiltrated with swings, sandpits, trampolines... it's endless! We do have a big garden so I have managed to save a few corners just for me! Tomorrow I'll try and get out and take a few pics, particularly of the large crab apple which is just bursting with blossom.
Hope you're enjoying the sun too.
