1 Our garden has gone from being mostly yellow with a bit of blue to being mostly blue with a bit of white and it’s lovely! Click on any photo to see the detail.
2 I have just finished my fifth piece for Wool Against Weapons and have sat in the sunshine this afternoon listening to bird song and making a start on the next one.
I am posting the instructions for the pieces here for my blogging friend, Patty, who would like to know how to contribute to the 7 miles of Knitting for Peace. If anyone else out there would like to join the cause, we’d love to have your pieces to add to ours!
Use any stitch and any wool…suggestion: approx. 80 – 90 stitches wide – dk size 7 needles/4.5mm with approx. 100 rows – use a tape measure, it really varies!
crochet dk chain approx 75 st
any colour of pink!
(I have found that I need 110 stitches on 5mm needles but it really does vary. To gauge how much wool knitters would need, I weighed my first piece and it weighs only 180 grammes but the Suffragette one weighs 300g with the others coming in somewhere in between!)
3 A lovely surprise this afternoon – H from The Ingleheart Singers very kindly called in with a beautiful bunch of flowers from all my singing friends saying how much I am missed. I’m missing them too and the singing in harmony. Singing would be good for for my soul and for my lungs and I want to get back as soon as possible!
