A Woodland Walk

Into the woods, around boggy bits, along field edges, slipping up hills and slivering down others in the mud, catching on brambles and holly, walking in pelting rain, climbing over fallen trees and back into the woodland, until I finally implored them

“SLOW DOWN! Aunty Rachel’s legs are a lot shorter than yours!”

I felt like I’d been through commando training!

Chop, chop, chopping for a chicken and pearl barley casserole.

Ohhhh. Not sure about including the sweet potatoes!

Do we want a pink dinner?

I’m now on my second granny square. The decision whether to keep going on and make a huge one-square blanket was made when I laid it on out a table at the weekend. I realised the edges were starting to frill. Rather than fiddle around adding extra chains along the sides I unravelled some rounds until it wasn’t frilling any more, fastened the yarn off and began another square.

Sometimes decisions are made for you and it’s easy!

I need to decide whether I carry on using this colour combination (it’s Breeze) or buy some more Hayfield Spirit DK in another colour combo. I can’t decide whether I want a purely blue and grey blanket, or one with a more colourful patchwork effect. I’ll have to decide soon because I have only half a ball left…

Tell me a few things?

  1. Getting old, dear one when you can’t keep up! Fortunately for me the grandchildren still play a lot as we walk so I don’t have that problem at the moment- just waiting for treasures to be found, sticks to be gathered and trees climbed. Lovely woodland walk.

  2. I’ve just had a lovely time catching up with you here, your posts have delighted me and I’m glad to find you well and enjoying your yarny crafts again. I have a WhatsApp group with yarny friends and we talk a LOT about recipes and food, probably more than we talk about yarny stuff! I hope the rest of the year treats you kindly, stay warm and safe xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I'd love to hear from you...
