Hermione! Hermione! Hermione Granger!

Hello Lovelies!
How are you all? I hope you're well.
Thank you all for the warm anniversary wishes and lovely comments on Mr TB's pressie.

The title of this post comes from a video my Littlies love an recreate frequently.
It's bizarre but they find it funny.
I am not a huge Potter fan but they are and now every time the mention a name from the films all I can hear is this little clip!
Biggest Littlie loved the hat that Hermione wears in The Deathly Hallows film (or Deathly Heeeelllooooo's! As me and Mr TB call it to irritate our children, as is our duty as partents.)  

I had a search on Ravelry and as usual it came up with the goods! A free pattern available form this clever ladies blog Linky.
It has been in my project list for a while and I wanted to clear the decks for some projects for myself and for Christmas projects 
(sorry for that mention of the "C" word") 
 So once I finished Middle Littlies socks on Sunday I cast it on!
It was a really simple and quick pattern and oh the deep joy of knitting with something thicker than sock yarn on needles bigger than 2.25mm!!! It was done before I knew it and all for the bargain price of under £2.
The yarn is Serenity by Wendy, colourway is Boysenberry bought from fantastic Kemps.
So here it is the Hermione! Hermione!Hermione Granger hat :)

Biggest Littlie loves it and there is enough yarm left over for some fingerless mitts I think but ONLY when I find the time 
(maybe as a gift for "C" word or her Birthday which is in 4 weeks)

So far be it from me to let the grass grow and all that I cast another hat on last night :)
I will save that for my next post.

Before I go I wanted to give my friends blog a quick shout out. If you are fans of Downtown Abbey or indeed Playmobile (you'll understand when you visit) pop  over and say hello and discover The Adventures of Lady Grantham.
Have a great week everyone.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary
them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in themorning, We will remember them.
Our thoughts are with the family and friends of those who have passed away and to our current serving friends and family, may they come back to us safe and sound.

16 years Ago Today!

:: Hello you lovely people!::
Thank you for all the funny comments on my last post. I love how so many of you tried to put a positive spin on  the shocking shorts. I hope I made you smile.

Today is my wedding anniversary. 16 years ago today I married my soul mate and best friend. 
He really was my best friend (before we went out together) and still is  !

He is my world and I am so lucky to have him. 
We don't normally give anniversary gifts, we just exchange cards but we have been through a lot over the last 2years and I don't think we could have coped without each other to lean on. So, I made him something special ....

Have a great weekend!
Love Tickety-boo
