Ta-da!

Well hello there, good morning!

How are things going at yours this fine Tuesday?

I'm good. So happy to have finally finished my green cardi. I think it'll be such a handy addition to the wardrobe. Great for throwing over the shoulders on a cooler summer's day or for wearing over a long sleeve top when the weather is cooler.

I am so excited to have knitted something for myself that I will definitely wear and love wearing.

All the details for this fab pattern can be found here.
HUGE thanks to Knitter Sue for the cotton.

I hope your week has gotten off to a great start.

The flood waters have receded at our place taking the drive way gravel with them and knocking down a few tress, but all in all we've been really lucky. The boys even managed to rescue the irrigation lines Bren was so worried about.

I hope you are feeling happy today.

I'm off to check out the blogs Pepper and Jazzy have been drawing on their cardboard computers. After that maybe a bit of time on Ravelry choosing a new pattern.

Have fun out there. XX

  25. That is gorgeous. I might need to see if I can convince my mum to knit me one - or are you selling them?? So nice that you have made something for yourself.

    I meant to ask how your farm had gone in the floods - sounds annoying but not a disaster.

    Glad the kids have caught the blogging bug!!

    Hope you have a good week. Lou.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
