By George I think She's Got It........

Hello - I hope that you have all had a lovely half term and that the weather helped!!  We have had some lovely sunshine here which I have been able to sit out and enjoy - wonderful.....

I had the pleasure of going  to Topsham this weekend for a walk about - as you know I do my little market stall there each month but it was nice to visit without a car to unload!  We popped into the market, as it has different stall holders each week I fancied seeing who is there when I am not!  It was very busy and business was brisk....I just picked up some Sweet Williams, they are a £1 a bunch and they last well.....



Then we had time for a wander  and we took  a photograph of "my house by the sea"....I often walk by and dream of what could be........

Isn't she gorgeous???...


After all that daydreaming it was time to go and have some lunch and have a knitting lesson!  I have wanted to master knitting for ages but I seem to have a complete block everytime I look at a knitting pattern!
My main skill learned yesterday was how to cast on!!! I know, pretty basic but I had a really hard time remembering how to do it; I was fine knitting but could NEVER remember the casting on bit.....
Well, that mastered, I was well away and even learned how to make some little basic flowers...


 So pretty.....


I think I am going to play safe and make a scarf.....

Though it may end up being quite a long scarf - I don't know how to cast off yet......


Warm Wishes for A Wonderful Week,

Bonjour Cally !
the bunch of flowers is pretty, in French we call these flowers "oeillets du poète" (I'm happy I've learnt new words "Sweet Williams" ; I didn't know the English name for them before ;-) )
Very beautiful house ... I dream ...
Oh, oh, I don't know knitting at all. My grandmother knitted very well. But I'd like to learn.
Have a nice week ! +++

Sweet Willams! My Mum's favourite, they always remind me of her when I see them.
I need to learn to knit, my sister keeps offering to teach me, I should really take her up on it!
Have a great week. Xx

Love your house by the sea!! I love the scarf, it will be fantastic when it is finished!! Or - when you learn to cast off (whichever comes first!!)

It took me many years to learn how to cast on and off properly, but in the meantime, I just muddled by! Sweet Williams are my favourite flowers, they last for so long and have the sweetest scent :)

Thank you for such kind comments on my blog :) My head could get a little big, haha!
