Well hello Blogger, aren't you new and fancy looking! Let's hope you will post for me today!
I do apologize for lack of posts for so long. It was a busy spring and an even busier summer. Graduations, University convocation, Confirmation, our 25th Anniversary and my father's 75th birthday party that I hosted for 40+ guests.
So some pictures to show that I wasn't telling porkies.
So everything is good here and as I said quite busy. I have been knitting too. There is a baby on the way, remember the cousin that had the construction accident? They are having a baby! We are so excited for them. I have started a baby blanket and already did a wee hat. And I did another Mid-December for DN1.
Oh and the requisite Hallowe'en picture!
Cowardly Lion, haha.
I will try to be better with posting, still feel like I missed telling you all so much. And I HAVE been keeping up with reading all your blogs. You are all so much more talented and organised than I am!

After you have selected chosen hook, you are going to pour yourself a nice cuppa. Then you will take your hook and chain around your hot water bottle. That's all I did. I added a few extra stitches to facilitate the hottie being full of water (it was obviously empty when I was measuring). But the yarn will stretch. I actually started with 46 stitches for my size bottle, which I am assuming is a standard size hottie (18cm x 40cm). After you have chained your needed amount of stitches, you will join it in the round. Your objective here is to create a tube. This way there is not any seams to sew up later.

I finished another infinity scarf but of course, forgot to take a picture but the recipient was so terribly grateful! I am now in the midst of finishing that neverending ripple blanket!

I used stashed yarn so as a result I ran one row short but who's looking right? Great pattern, very easy, so you beginners out there, NOW is the time! Knit and purl, that's all you need to know girls! What are you waiting for?

Ignore the cleaning clothes sweats please, I did not dress up for you, I am sorry. See how long and lovely? A great infinity scarf/cowl. Love it! And DN1 loved it. I knit it for her. I tried a pattern last year that was a disaster. This one is scrumptious. And the yarn, oh the yarn. It is Malabrigo Pearl (3 years old) doubled, knit on 9mm circulars. (Wish I ordered from Jimmy Beans, I paid waaaay more than that!)

But the pie! The scenes with the chocolate pies made my mouth water (except that certain scene, and those that have read the book or have seen the movie know exactly what I mean). But this led me on a quest, so as a result I have found two recipes that are suppose to be either the pie recipe from the actual movie and the pie recipe from the author's maid, Demetrie.

I am patiently waiting for the curtains. They will be completed soon but I thought I would give you a little picture I took shortly after I painted the bedroom. Not sure if I like the shades I made for the dressing table lamps? What do you think? The originals are cream damask. Something to ponder.
I am still nursing the patient. Her six week post op appointment is Tuesday so we are hoping for some good news. The scars seem to be healing quite well and we have been applying Vitamin E cream which has seemed to speed up the healing process. But she still has some pain when she tries to do too much. My goodness this is a long recovery. Athletes do not sit still very well! And I am not getting half the things done I thought I would!
Here is the patient holding the incredible hailstones from Wednesday evening. We were lucky the cars didn't get dented, they were huge.

I don't leave the house for very long. Maybe a half hour to run to the chemist or to pick up milk etc. So I have not bought one plant for the garden. Not that I am behind at all as the weather here has been wet. Record breaking wet. No one has done any planting as the ground is quite soppy. But I do need to figure out which climbing rose I will plant against the new potting shed.
I want a vigorous one obviously. Fast growing, deep pink or cerise with a fragrance and a repeat bloomer. I know, not much to ask for right? America? Galway Bay? I just can't make a decision.
