Heron, Flowerpots and French Knitting

25 Jan

As we cross the bridge into town we can sometimes spot the resident heron.

All along the bridge are enormous flowerpots in strong primary colours which look really bright and cheerful.

I am teaching our Livewire how to do French knitting. We are hoping to have made a necklace before we leave. DSCN9277

    I loved French knitting when I was a child, but the gadget was not fancy… An empty wooden thread spool and four nails! Now I make i-cords with a crochet hook or knitting needles.

      We had the ones you describe too! Then later I had a Knitting Nancy, a wooden doll with the hoops on top but it took forever for the knitting to come through. 🙂

    Dear my fair lady, The Cranes of Spain stay mainly in the plain. Though yours appears to have one foot clearly midstream.

    Your pic of the pots. Picasso inspired? It is pretty much his pallet with the exception his blue period. Either way, you have good eyes.

    French knitting. so that’s what it is called . Am showing my chromosomes aren’t I. You two are having a blast I bet. And a safe bet at that.

    Oh that French knitting photo really brought back memories for me. I must see if I can get a couple for my granddaughters when they visit. Lovely photos of the heron and colorful flowerpots. 😃
