Friendship Scarf, Flower Bobbles and Purple Cabbage

1   I heard last night that my present for my lovely Sister-in-law had arrived safely so now I can tell you about the secret project that I mentioned well before Christmas. I knitted V a Friendship Scarf in her favourite colour. I just loved  the description of the scarf which seemed so appropriate.

 Say ‘I’m thinking of you’ with a hand-knit scarf of lace hearts. Simple and quick to knit on just 29 stitches.
The scarf begins with a wavy eyelet rib stitch symbolising the twists and turns of life and ends with a band of interlocking hearts to express the bonds of loving friendship.

Here it is, the pattern picture and my scarf. Click to see the detail. It wasn’t quick for me! I started it before Christmas, had a hiatus over Christmas and my operation and got knitting again as soon as my brain kicked back into gear! I got the pattern from Craftsy.

2   There were some spare flowers from my Spring Wreath that I showed you yesterday so KJ suggested that I sew hair bands on the back so that Grandbaby T can wear some flowers in her hair. They are in the birthday parcel.

3   I went to choir again today – life is getting back to normal – and noticed this little purple cabbage growing outside Peapod’s cafe. I’m sure it has a proper name! I like the way it holds the raindrops.
