Hi guys :)
Have you had a nice weekend?
Ours has been pretty busy, just doing bits and pieces.
Yesterday we went off on a jolly to Durham, and a a beautiful steam engine came down the street while we were waiting for the bus! Isn't it fab? :D
In typical "touristy" fashion we had a peek a the cathedral
In other news..... ta-dah!
I went for years being unable to knit, well, slight lie as i could do the knit stitch,but nothing else, and i could never understand the patterns
So, i decided it was high time for me to learn properly!
On Friday i sat myself down, armed myself with needles and yarn and the internet and got learning.
This is how far i have got so far, it's (hopefully) going to be a jumper and i'm doing a mock cable pattern at the same time! It's surprisingly easy (Ooohh get me!)
I'm also starting a crocheted shawl for a friend who's just a baby :)
My carrots are finally sprouting and growing well!
And i also got some lovely freebies! If you go here there will be a link to VegetableSeeds.net and if you have a gardening related blog and link to them, they will give you a £10 gift voucher!
So this is what i got with mine, Leeks, Savoy cabbage, Broccoli, Lavender, Mint, Onions, Aster, Coneflowers and Calendula :)
I'm looking forward to getting everything planted out/ sown, fingers crossed this week!
What are you up to this week?
Don't forget, i'm hosting the next "What's Cooking?" blog hop tomorrow, so feel free to drop by and leave a recipe :)
