🌷 Happy Mother’s Day🌷

 Hello lovely people!! We are celebrating Mother's Day today so I send love to all those mother's out there and truly hope you enjoy today. I believe mother's should be appreciated whatever day it is but since we have a dedicated gives me every reason to sit here all day and knit...without any grief from anyone 😂😂.

What have I been up to lately?  

 I completed an order for a christening set and this actually made me very excited because it has been a very long time since I have heard of a christening taking place. Not just due to covid but truly, a long time that a christening has happened. This set has been knitted in an 8 ply yarn, I used the instructions from a book but added a pattern of my choice because it looked nicer, I like it just so.

There was a little problem finding the yarn, so in the meantime I started knitting the christening set in a darker case we couldn't find the lighter shade of yarn. 
So the difference with this set is that the instructions ended the lacy part of the jacket an inch and a half lower from the armhole. I didn't like this so much once I'd finished, so I changed it when I knitted the set again. It still looks lovely though.

I had an amazing win last week. I scooped these cement garden edgers up for little dollars. 

These eight segments make a perfect circle shape and I hope to have them set up in the garden today. Fingers crossed.

Last night I had a crochet night and stayed up til crazy hours. I finished this little beauty of a poncho. I still have to make 2 tassels and it's done. For the top of the poncho I made several small granny squares and this gave me the chance to use up small lengths of leftover yarn. I then continued in the round using big splashes of colour to make this bright beauty.

Yesterday I was on  Aunt duties and looked after 4 children......loved it! But then in the afternoon I took off to join my group of crazy friends for a clean up at the pavilion. In true form, after the tidy up and preparations for our Poultry auction, the dress up happens. 
The dress up is a reward for all the hard work in tidying up the shed. lol I look like a little gypsy, my friends - they look funny. Love them.

I am leaving you all for now and off to enjoy my mother's day. Have an amazing weekend, and thank you all for stopping by my blog. 

Ciao, Anita.
