This week

This week has been so windy and wild and wet. It's been all about trying to stay warm and keep the spirits up. Luckily for me my are isn't near any rivers so we haven't experienced any flooding. 

I've been cosying up on the sofa with knitting, hot water bottles and lots of cups of tea!

One of the hyacinths is now blooming- the white one.  The pink is lagging behind rather and is still refusing to come out and say hello.  Well maybe this will be the week.

I've spent a lot of the last few weeks, when I've had craft time, browsing for a knitted shawl pattern. I'd really like to knit a triangular shawl, but I need something simple to start with. Does anyone have any ideas?  



  1. Dear Jen, I am actually knitting my first triangular scarf. The pattern is simple but it is turning out realy nice, especially with variegated yarn. This is the link: (hope it works).
    Thanks for your lovely blog posts.
    Love from Holland, Alice

  2. I'm intrigued by what you are knitting in the picture - such a lovely colour. I would also recommend Ravelry for a pattern - I've knitted several shawls from there and a year ago I would have quivered at the thought! Have a lovely weekend x Jane

  3. I have made this shawl which has a fancy border but the main part is plain so it is not too complex. It always receives lots of compliments.
    I love the look of what you are knitting. It looks very cosy.

  4. What a lovely color you are knitting with's so elegant. Lovely pictures today!

  5. Gorgeous pictures - I really like your cup and saucer, very pretty.

  6. Beautiful hyacinth, I love their heady scent!

  7. Belo trabalho, belas flores!!

  8. Beautiful knitting. At least the flowers make you believe Spring will come.

  9. ooh I love hyacinth! the color of you knitting is lovely, is it a pattern you are following? I am casting on for the Brill Shawl from the latest Pom Pom Quarterly.. its striped and starts with the simple lace edging first.
