Spring is Blossoming

I am enjoying the beginning of Spring.  With its lovely blue sky, white fluffy clouds, soft cool breezes and in between these the not so sunny days, the grey sky, the dark clouds and the blustery winds which are not as enjoyable.

Yesterday we had the lovely blue sky and sunshine type of Spring day and we ventured outside for some gardening and I took the opportunity to take some photos of the lovely flowers that are beginning to blossom in our garden.

Little splashes of orange to enhance all the lovely green foliage.

Green palm fronds, fluffy white clouds against a clear blue sky make for a lovely Spring day.

Thank you for joining me for a walk around my garden.  I am enjoying watching Spring blossom and hoping for many more clear sun shiny days when we can get outdoors and explore some more.

Take care xx

My Cardigan

I am sorry that I have once again had an absence from my blog, unfortunately I have been unwell.  I am feeling much better but not completely back to myself, hopefully soon I will be.  I have been rather busy trying to catch up on all my regular tasks that I have gotten behind on, which seem to pile up rather quickly don’t they.   I have also been trying to keep up to date on my knit along which I fell behind on, however I am happy to say that I have finished yay!!  well I do still need to sew on my buttons which I am going to get done today…. I most certainly will.

miette-sleeves

Working sleeves in the round, I made my sleeves full length where the pattern was for three quarters sleeves.  They turned our nicely.

miette-trim

I wanted my Miette Cardigan to be full length, so not only did I add length to make the sleeves long, I also added length to the body of the cardigan, and I like that it was knitted in the round as I could easily try it on and make sure that I had completed enough rows to sitting nicely at full length.  I added extra rows to the ribbing edge also, to match the length of the ribbing on the sleeves.

flower

My little one picked this sweet little daisy from our garden to give to me whilst I was resting and knitting, such a sweet gesture and exactly what I needed.

There has also been some magazine reading and tea drinking over these last few weeks.

Would you like to see a complete photo of my cardigan…………..

miette-blockin

Ta-dah…….. my first ever cardigan knitted by me.   This was all set up ready to block, it is all dry now and looking at the forecast I might get the opportunity to wear it this week, I just need to get these buttons sewn on.  I am happy with how it has turned out, and really look forward to being able to wear it.   It fits nicely which is great.

I have already started my next project, a cute little vest for my little one.  I am about to start on the second ball of yarn, and my little one checks on my progress and has a feel of the yarn which is very cute.  The yarn is lovely and he picked it out himself, and he has made an excellent choice.  I look forward to sharing this project with you very soon.

Thank you for visiting my blog, hope you might return again soon.

Take care xx
