new knitting

I've got a pair of hand spun Jacon wool shorties almost finished but couldn't resist starting this scarf when the wool arrived.
Pattern is a free one on ravelry and wool is Mirasol, linkys (I keep forgetting how to do the swish 'click the word' links)
Wool here
I think I may give it as a Yule gift :)

Crayon Roll

We had a birthday to go to on Sunday and I completely forgot so Sunday morning whipped up this :) I wanted to keep it so may have to make one for the boys lovely wax crayons that came in a tin which is halfway to being demolished.

So easy to make but makes a £2 pack of crayons look FABULOUS ;)

Catch up

The promised rain moved off so we made the most of the afternoon by going on a new walk at Wheal Busy, we weren't sure where to go but came across a field full of lovely alllotments and a pony and a lovely cottage called Foxes Hollow which I quite fancy buying!
The puddle jumping obsession hasn't skipped Edan and he is as excited by them as Kailen was.

Skein of 2 ply Jacob! I've done 2 of these now :)

A gift after the morning rain.

Our new girls named Autumn and Winter

New skirt for the shop age 5.

Sunrise the other day.

Busy day

Two new chickens named Autumn and Winter :)
Two new skirts almost finished for the shop.
Some photos done for the breastfeeding calender. Another shoot tomorrow :) I'm in dire need of another memory card, do you think it will magically appear in the post tomorrow (along with a niddy noddy!)
Alo got my first full bobbin of plied Jacob, I will skein it and wash it and then actually knit something with it! Not sure how much wool is there weight wise though so it may be a smallish project!
No photos becasue I've been busy spinning.
Other things..cabbages in, variety of lettuces gone into the greenhouse, 90% of tomato plants taken out so looking a bit bare in there.
My butternut squashes as all still really small. Are you meant to restrict the green leafy growth like with tomatos so all the energy gets put inot the squashes? K's pumpkins are non existent they were definately put in too late.
More cabbages to go in and garlic obviously.
Green manure? Maybe if I get time.
