Sitting on the dock of the bay comes to mind. Always loved that song, but it was played at my son's funeral and I can't listed to it anymore,. Beautiful picture.
I'm a vegan too and don't find it easy to eat out. I've been a vegetarian for over 30 years but have recently decided to go vegan and it's much easier to eat at home. Sorry you didn't have a good time.
Yours is lovely. I tried knitting one like that on the knitting machine and just couldn't get the rounded edge right at all.
Thank you for your response. Yes he did pay the ultimate price as did thousands if not millions.
I've just come back from a short break in France. My husband, my eldest sister and her husband and my other sister. None us speak very good French but they are marvellous at speaking English. We went to see the grave of our great uncle. It's the first time I've seen it and I was so glad to have seen it at last. He's buried at Ecoivre but fell at Vimy. He is actually buried at the Canadian cemetery (which is kept so incredibly neat) although he was English. He emigrated to Canada to be a farmer in 1914 but when the war started he signed up to be part of the Canadian expeditionary force.
We went down tunnels, and trenches. Saw the marvellous Canadian Memorial, saw the tunnels that were dug at Wellington and marvelled at the fact 24,000 men stood in the very deep tunnels and saw the staircase they had to emerge from and into the gunfire. Quite horrific.
It's very hard to put into words the effect that seeing this had on me. It's just so heartbreaking to look at the pictures of some very men and think of their gift to us.
If anyone has heard of Eric Boyle singing The Green Fields of France you should try and hear it. It's very moving.
Goodness I've still got one of those belts. Only trouble is that doesn't go round me anymore boo hoo
When I started working I worked in a bank so I gave my Mum a cheque for £5 and she was quite happy with that as I wasn't earning much. When my pay went up, again I gave her a cheque for the new amount. Years later she told me it was a bit of a bind to to have to go to the bank every week to cash it. Wish she'd told me sooner
I've never ordered from knit picks but I have ordered from Deramores and their customer service is marvellous. I recently ordered some chunky wool from them (7) balls of wool. Was kept informed that it was on its way. Came home one day and found a note inside that my parcel had been safely delivered. I looked all round but no parcel. I emailed Deramores telling them what had happened. I was advised to contact the delivery company. They said it had been left in a secure porch. As I told them more than once. I don't have a porch. To cut a long story short the delivery company virtually called me a liar. But Deramores asked me if I wanted my money back or a replacement. I went for the replacement and it came in 3 days. Now that's what I call service
Thank that was very interesting. The thing is I don't knit like any of them. I find it very difficult to hold on to the needles on top, can't get the tension at all. I must admit the way I knit makes my left thumb rather sore. So I'll keep trying, might be more conformable.
Must admit I didn't watch all of it, but I can't stand the rough way they treat the sheep. Grabbing them by their (antlers) and yanking them to the ground. Yanking the is heads back to look at their teeth. Sorry just upset me.
Lovely. Oh to be 40 years younger
I am trying to find my way back to my knitting and functioning. I have not been on here for two months. My husband passed away suddenly in January. Since then I have lost my focus for almost everything. I am starting to knit again but focus is still a bit difficult.
I've just seen your post and I'm so very sorry for you. My son was killed nearly four years ago and it takes time a lot of time. Be kind to yourself do things when you can.
Well, after watching the video I don't know what my style is called. I hold the right hand needle almost like a pen and underneath the needle. I've tried continental but no luck so far
