Too many babies

…not enough time.

All my friends seem to be having twins right now.  It’s very inconsiderate of them.  Still, it has given me a way to use up some stash yarn and explore lovely new patterns.  I am particularly liking the spiral granny square and I have been experimenting with using several different versions.  It is great fun and particularly rewarding because you don’t have to keep changing your yarn every few rows.  It’s a quick pattern and extremely satisfying.  Take a look at these two (the pink one is a work in progress) baby blankets, made using soft Stylecraft Special DK.  Scrummy aren’t they?  I love squishing them.  They are very squishable!  I may just have to make myself one when I am done.

And here are some yummy pictures of the garden/early summer sky.  These past few weeks have been lovely.

Oh, and do you smell dinner? Lamb shanks slow cooked in red wine with onions, carrots and fresh herbs.  It was TASTY!

And some late spring/early summer blooming!  It’s sooooo beautiful to see everything coming to life and bursting with colour.

Right!  That’s enough for one post.  Back soon with a little more fashion and some more crochet/yarn.
