Well the weather has been pretty awful the last week or so...lots of rain and grey skies.
But indoors is cheery and bright...
Pretty spring flowers - tulips and daffodils. I love both these flowers and daffodils especially make me happy just by looking at them!
I made a lemon cake...zesty and tasty.
I finished my pink scarf! I really love this scarf - I finished it on Friday and have been wearing it lots. It's so cosy but not too heavy if that makes sense?! I used Stylecraft 4ply in shade Pale Rose and the pattern is the Catherine Scarf from Inside Crochet Magazine issue 34 (from 2012!). It was so enjoyable to make and I want to make another one for my mum now.
I have made very little progress (ok...no progress) on my cardigan this week. I have wanted to make another granny blanket for a while now and I decided I couldn't resist starting it any longer! So I began a new one at the weekend in soft, pastel colours. I'm infatuated with it and have been working on it whenever I have any spare time.
So lots of things to cheer up these grey January days!
Wishing you all a lovely week.
Beautiful scarf and you flowers look lovely against your gorgeous tea cosy. I'll take a slice of that lemon cake if I may please! Keep warm. xxReplyDelete

You have been busy, the scarf looks really pretty. I use the word 'lofty' when I want to say warm but not heavy does that fit? That is what I imagine when I look at your scarf. Jo xReplyDelete
Your scarf is lovely. It has been too grey, spring flowers do help to cheer the dull days though. HxReplyDelete

Daffodils are definitely a good antidote to grey skies and wet weather :)ReplyDelete
