More Summer Sun
Ah another lovely day has been had! Yesterday was hot, so we spent the day in the garden in the paddling pool and rounded off the day with a bbq. Especially nice as, of course, my husband does the cooking that way and I only have to whip up a salad!!
Today we got to the PYO and got loads of lovely strawberries and I remembered my purse today, so go me!
Weather has been glorious again today, so had a couple of friends over for strawberries and scones with clotted cream - fabulous!
Knitting wise I have finished my Boo knits shawl - hurrah. It has been lovely to knit and I will miss it now, but there are other things on my list, so won't be bored for long. Actually, there are some roses that I need to get on with ...
Back to the shawl, it now needs blocking - something I have never done before. So, I have looked on the internet for instructions, and found that I do not have quite the right equipment. I'm too impatient, so have improvised. I do have pins, but not enough and I don't have a water spray (except the one in the greenhouse - don't think that counts).
Therefore, I'm doing half of it and using a water pistol!! I don't think it can harm it, so will see how it goes. Will post finished pictures if it works!!
