Frosty Morning

Here are some photographs of my run at 7 am yesterday morning before work.  It was cold, frosty and sunny, perfect running weather!  I love beautiful mornings like this, so pretty.  I'm very fortunate to live right next to a footpath which takes me across some lovely countryside.  The photos are a bit rubbish, but I think you get the idea.

Another busy weekend been and gone.  I have finished my granny squares cushion, which I now need to sew together.  I expect there will be more of these to come, I really enjoyed making these little squares, I could switch off and crochet while watching television.  (I actually watched the old BBC series of Pride and Prejudice, with Colin Firth, marvellous!)  This was my first venture into crochet.  I've been a knitter for years, but after seeing the beautiful crochet cushions and blankets on Pinterest I decided to teach myself.  I now know the basics, but I'm very much looking forward to learning more!

My stitch markers are now in the shop.  I really enjoy making these, I love working with beads.  I've made these with sock and lace knitters in mind; they are very dainty and will fit a needle size of up to 4mm (US 6).  There are just a few pictured below, the rest are in the shop.  How about treating yourself on Saturday when the yarn update goes in! ;)

I'll 'try' and get a yarn update blogged before Saturday's update!
