Weekend Review

As predicted the weather was awful on Saturday, started out cold and foggy and by mid morning it was rain and gales.  Luckily I was happily ensconced at the Sheep Shop for my crochet class.  It was an interesting morning. I now know the principles and I think with practice and some patience I can crack this.




A colleague had shown me how to do a treble a few weeks back and I was pleased to see that I remembered how to do it.


These I did with a colleague before going to the class - I'm actually really pleased with them now, I thought they were rubbish before!
Peter kindly picked me up from the class and asked me if I would like to go out for lunch.  Not needing to be asked twice, we headed out to the Crown & Punchbowl at Horningsea, a perfect lunch for a miserable day, plus it meant that I didn't need to cook dinner, as we don't normally have a 3 course lunch!!

I decided that Granny's World needed its own page on Facebook, so be sure to pop over a "like" it - it also give you another way of reading and keeping updated - thanks in advance

Knitting during the afternoon and evening - I got this little jacket finished and worked on a couple of other projects.

just need to block and find a button
Sunday was a bit better, we managed to see a bit of sun, I did some housework )-: and Peter cleared the tomato plants from the greenhouse, presenting me with 2 and a bit pounds of green tomatoes. I just had to make chutney, luckily I had all the necessary ingredients to hand

Ingredients
Peelings
that's a lot of chopping
Soft stage

add the sugar and spice (to make it nice)
reduce it down
pot it up
And after all that I spent the rest of the day knitting - secret projects

  4. Glad your workshop went well. Your crochet is very neat. I have tried crochet on and off over the years but can't get on with it. Edgings are OK though - for a while. You always seem to be busy and I admire you for it. Your secret knitting looks intriguing. Love the red. Lloking forward to seeing the finished objects.
