The perfect combination for this weekend is knitting and cake. I still have my head cold, though feeling heaps better than Thurs/Fri so its just as well the weather has been rough as I've not felt like being out in the garden. Peter did get the grass cut yesterday afternoon during a sunny spell and assures me we are trimming hedges today! Looks too cold out there right now. We keep getting the odd snow flurries, this was one brewing yesterday whilst we were in town. Luckily we were in cafe Nero at the time (photo shot through glass).

As mentioned the other week I have started the Frilled Dress. This is the back ruffle section, very interesting construction. Yarn as on the link.
Whilst at knitting group recently I was given a part knitted child's sweater and a ball of yarn and asked if I could finish it. Always up for a challenge (no pattern) I thought I would give it a go. On closer inspection the ball of yarn given was an Aran weight whilst the sweater was DK, so wouldn't do. I trawled through my stash of white yarn, picked out what I hoped would match but after a few rows it was clear that it was the wrong shade of white. What to do? Frog it and knit something else, which is what I ended up doing and here is the result, all that's left is a small amount of the pale pink yarn. These will go in the charity bag at Medway Craft Group. Patterns are Sublime - Rosy Posy Hat and Sugar Plum Cardi
That's it for today hubby is awake and wants a cup of tea. Enjoy the rest of your Easter and stay warm.
