Sow seeds Saturday

It was a lovely dry sunny morning so I got out to do some gardening just after 10am. I managed to sow some Swiss Chard Bright Lights, lettuce + Cosmos, tidy the garden for two hours and fill three bags of rubbish; not bad for a mornings work. Oh and planted up the pansies I bought last week. Great timing as it's now pouring down with rain! I hope you have all had a nice Saturday morning. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Amanda x

I haven't managed any gardening yet today, and it's looking like rain now so I don't know whether I'll get anything done or not. Sounds like you made the most of a nice morning.

All the fresh air and walking the dog made me tired so I had an early evening nap on the sofa! It's turned colder again :(

Definately older here today - we are due to go to Catterick - probably in the van - a bit too cold for the motorbike.
I want the garden rubbish to be burnt so my raised beds can be built! Being realistic I don't think it will be this year as we have so much on our plates and hubby is doing DIY stuff. Still managed to plant my potatoes in the small plot behind my greenhouse.

Hi - have come here via a comment on my blog at projectforty - I read your title and it's a list of all the things I love! You've reminded me to sow some chard - thank you. Lovely photos.

cables without the cables (Birch Trees scarf)

Earlier this year I came across this lovely Birch Trees Scarf knitting pattern over at Hand Knitted Things. Its one of those patterns that you just have to try because its so pretty and very practical and looks far more intricate and complicated than the 4 row pattern suggests. I like to call it cables without the cables, such a clever pattern thank you Julia Marsh.

 I'm knitting mine on vintage no. 7 needles (kindly given to me by my mother-in-law) and using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino charcoal out of my yarn stash that was meant to be for Ian's scarf! shh don't tell him! I use DB yarn all the time, picking up bargains in John Lewis and eBay but its the first time I've knitted with Cashmerino, and it isn't going to be the last. It gives you great stitch definition and the softest yarn ever, I love it. So here is my scarf in progress. It has been sitting in my car waiting to be loved again after I accidentally knitted the moss stitch border wrong. I know how can you ge…

traffic jam (crochet simple granny triangle shawl)

I got stuck in the office on Monday night, not the best of situations but this estate I work on does get congested frequently and not helped by lorries breaking down blocking one lane of two. Anyway all was not lost because I'd had a new yarn delivery that morning and I needed an excuse to stop and crochet. And this is how this granny shawl got its name. Isn't it gorgeous? It's crochet in the new Sirdar Colourwheel DK yarn. On first inspection I wasn't that taken with it, but now I love it. No more colour changes, yipee.

If you'd like to know how to make this here is the Simple Granny Triangle pattern I'm using or this link. Happy crocheting!

free knitting pattern - baby cardigan Twilleys Freedom Sincere DK

I have been looking for a pattern for a lady at my hairdressers so I've ordered the yarn today. I haven't knitted any baby things since Jack was a baby (many years ago and makes me sound old!) You can find the baby cardigan knitting pattern courtesy of Deramores.
