Another finish for a Christmas gift, this is for my sister, the shades are ones she will love. This is such a simple shawl to make, the pattern is here, it's one of those I can knit with my eyes closed. I've always used plain colours before, the shades does lift this design.
Nanna can you knit me a scarf, yes Will, what colour would you like?, rainbow please! I have a bright shade of red to add, it's small just 40 stitches and fun to knit, his coat is shades of blue, so this should go well.
I've finished day 5, I added some golden thread to the yellow, as I do feel gold rings should shine out. Day six is another simple design, I get this project out when hubby is out, just my quiet time.
Monday we popped to Lidl for a fridge shop, got all we needed plus some Christmas chocolates, I think we have most of what we like, not too bigger stash as it would mean more weight to lose after Christmas. I got fresh oranges and lemons, so later this week I will soak the dried friut for 1st Christmas cake, I always use the rine and juice of 2 large oranges and 1 lemon.
Nothing much to do outside, did swap 2 pots around, just a small rethink. My neighbours gardener popped over to give some advice on one shrub, which is now too big, she confirmed I can cut it back hard at this time of year. The shrub came from Win's garden, and I was being extra careful with it. We are waiting for the tree surgeon to set the date for the Magnolia to get its reshape, I love this tree, it's the star in our garden.
Off to do some more of Wills scarf, I am enjoying the simple knitting and the bright colours. Next I want to make some fingerless gloves for my sisters partner, he not keen on the hand-knitted socks I make. Later it's coffee time with our sign group, we are a group of 7, so we now take in turns who not to attend, sad but a reflection of our times, following the rule of 6, thank goodness no rain today.
