Hooky hooky

I promised to share with you what I am working on currently so a quick run down so far:

The kaleidoscope blanket - nearly done with my July part but not quite yet so hang on in there for a picture!

Newly begun is my 'Great Escape shawl' and Bertie said I wasn't having a picture without him:

Also recently begun is my coastal ripple blanket - I ordered the yarn as a pick me up for when we returned from holiday as I know I need most distracting once everyone is back in the work day routine:

Once again Bertie plonked himself down so he could be part of the picture! I also have just cast on a pair of socks for Dave but there isn't much to show just yet so will be back with an update on those eventually! 

The chimney has just been swept for this year so settling down by the fire with a nice bit of hooky sounds like it won't be far away but for now I need to go and mow my lawn as the grass seems to be growing quite fast still! More soon, S x

September already!

August passed me by in another whirlwind of holiday and birthdays and here we are at the start of autumn! So what did I do to fill the time? Well I finished the June section of the Kaleidoscope blanket:

Bertie spent many happy hours stealing the yarn from my bag and tangling it up, he really does love this blanket!

Lottie's friend from work made me these lovely cupcakes for my birthday!

And we all had fun on the beach!

And here we are in September with the weather changing towards a cooler and darker time and I am looking back and thinking what a lovely summer we had! I seem to be having a huge dose of startitis so I will be back soon to show what I have on my needles and hooks! S x
