Poor puppy had his operation last week to be microchipped, neutered & repair a rather large hernia on his belly - he was up every 2 hours the night of his operation with a very upset tummy - poor little thing! I felt so sorry for him - he's had lots of extra cuddles and love but I am REALLY looking forward to giving him a bath when he has his stitches out next week as he really stinks!!!!

I've been knitting up some Christmas presents - scarves - pink one for Nana Jean, grey one for my mother. I chose some really lovely Soya yarn with metallic thread through it which could take a really open knit with a simple garter stitch - have so far done 2 different colours and am making myself a lovely marine coloured scarf in the same yarn.

Am also knitting up a ribbed scarf for my Dad in lovely Vintage Purls Sock Yarn. Will be hard to part with as its so so so soft!

Spring Fever!

Naughty, naughty - not been posting as I'm too busy outdoors having fun!!

Lots of walks on the beach
with puppy who is growing up quickly!

We also had a visit from my sister-in-law, another trip to the beach to fly kites

and yet more trips to the beach to collect shells with my daughter...

So not a lot of knitting going on here!! Am still working on the drop-stitch scarf which has grown a lot...

and the alphabet blanket Debbie Bliss pattern, which I am hating as I am not concentrating fully on it & keep having to rip it back! Only 3 fifths to go!!
