The big 70s blanket of great brown-ness is still on the hook. I knocked a third off the finished size of it in order to actually finish it one day, so now I'm in the home straight. I have 16 four round grannies left to make, then it is sewing in the ends (not looking forward to that) and joining.

In between squares I have finished a few other things too. More of those to come. Must update my Ravelry pages too.

Gosh there's a lot of catching up to do after the summer hols!

I have discovered that I find the keeping of this blog of mine easier via my phone. I hardly touch the computer these days. Except to look at Pinterest. So. I have reinstalled Blogger on my phone and am looking forward to blogging again. There is so much to catch up on, not least about a hundred crocheted FO's and the general rowdiness that is life.

Back soon...

W, up a hill, taking it easy (and ignoring Miss T pooing in her knickers. Twice. And Toot and I having to clear her up with one tissue until a helpful and much amused Random Dad stepped in with a packet of wipes and a nappy bag. Bless you kind sir).

 Waiting for the Cascade

 Paddling at Chatsworth. I wanted to do this last time we went, but we weren't allowed. So Much Fun!



Cable cars...

Holes to peer through...

Princesses and castles and...

Knights and swords and axes and...


And a cracking Indian meal, a terrible (worst ever!) Chinese meal, a very fine steak and stilton pie, some fabulous homemade cakes and afternoon teas, warming soup, bacon and eggy breakfasts, coffee coffee coffee and six great nights sleep, aided by one bottle of peaty loveliness that is Laphroig whisky.

Holidays...aren't they great?

Me, an upended footstool, twelve balls of cotton, a chip basket for yarn ends and a large glass of cold white wine:

Next comes the fun part...x
