Get on with it!

Don't you hate it when this happens.
You have a great idea.
You rummage and decide.
A new scarf
just what I need
and it's chilly, no worries I'll have that finished in a jiffy!
not finished yet
but you started that last weekend,
it's only a scarf
what's going on!

It's me, that what's going on, well two things really.
lack of skill
My scarf was nearly finished when I decided it was just too
I draped it artfully around my neck
only it didn't drape 
it just kind of stood there
covering my face but not snuggling me!
Problem was I'd used (don't actually know the proper stitch name) the stitch you use for granny squares.
It looked lovely but really,way too firm!

So after an evening of unpicking.
Hooking unhooking.
Trying a bit of knitty magic
I settled on this combination.
I'm liking this
Just need to get on with it cos I need to wrap up
it's chilly out there you know!


  1. It does look snuggly! Yay for homemade scarves! :-)

  2. Ha Ha! it's me again, just found out what the adjustments were all about! Glad that you were happy with it in the end, the colours are gorgeous and I hope it has snuggled you in many a happy moorland walk by now.

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.

I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!

Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.

That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥
