:: May Day Bank Holiday ::
That's the first day of May rather than a distress call!
How are you all? Hope you have had a good week. The sun has been make a lot of appearences over the last few weeks which makes me VERY happy. We have had BBQ's already and the garden is lush and green.
Can't quite believe it's only the 2nd May. Even the strawberry plants have flowered!
I tidied up the garden and tried to give the cottage door a more welcoming feel.
So I painted a new sign and planted a few plants. What do you think?
The Littlies and I painted the heart stone Middle Littlie found when we were on holiday.
It brightens up a dark little corner of the garden no end.
and so to the Ta-Dah III and the disappointment. I bought some hand dyed yarn from a fellow blogger and Raveler Clicky Needles. She has just started an online shop for her lovely hand dyed yarns. It arrived very quickly and I was delighted with it. I picked up my Socks from The Toe Up book and flicked through and found a fantastic pattern called Serpentine Socks. Totaly lovely!
I cast them on whilst on holiday after making a very speedy pair of ribbed socks for smallest littlie which I'll post about another time. I loved knitting this pattern it was interesting enough without being too challenging. Last night I finished them Yipeeeeeeeeeeeee! But not quite squeeeeeeeeeee.
Why not squeeeeeeee? Because the bloody things are too blinking small!!!
They fitted until I turned the heel and now I can't get my porkers in them. Hence the disappointment part.
Far be it from Biggest Littlie to hide her light under a bushell, she jumped right on in there and in Cinderella stylie declared "they fit, they fit, they fit!" So I guess they are now hers. But here the are anyway
modelled by Biggest Littlie............
I guess that's them gone then eh?
Anyway this isn't getting the picnic packed and the kids are chomping at the bit so I will leave it there for now.
Have a great week evrybody!
Love Tickety-boo xxxxxxxxx
