Just Because

At last a couple of tiny pluses in my lackluster world.  You know the like comment and share competitions on Facebook , well I got this little beauty sent to me by The Search Press to review and im glad to report that this is a  modern crochet book I actually got on quite well with , it does written and charts plus a gorgeous photo and after a play with a few wool scraps , not the right weight or type , I managed to make a flower square that sort of resembled what they thought it should look like , I love crochet for its mindless quality and the fact that if you drop a stitch you wont get miles and hours along before it becomes very obvious . So I plan to have a few more plays with the designs in this one .




I toddled to Methringham car boot yesterday on the way to the Coop , i managed to get my shopping and a big file of knitting patterns with change from £3 , the tatty gem among the mostly 70s and 80s patterns is this War Knitting by Bestway  you can knit an ARP jumper !!





The Coop was having a bit of a clear out on the veg front yesterday so its wilty veg witth everything for the next couple of days , then a root in the freezer to see if theres any fruit left at the bottom to disguise the rhubarb because ive run out of jam and its munchkins holiday club this week ..lol Note to oneself,  must also bake buns he was moaning there were none today
