In my teens (a long long time ago) I lived very near the River Dodder & often walked along its banks both upriver & downriver, when we married we moved out of the city.
Last 6 years or so I have done very little walking in 2013 I had a left hip replaced & last week my right knee replaced - perhaps in a few weeks I will be able to enjoy walks again!
Love the colours, they remind me of late 1960's or early 70's - the Mary Quant era.
So Rugby has some good points!!!
I went to Aldi this morning - had to resist the yarn (hubby was with me, I probably have more in my stash than Aldi) BUT I did buy the card making stuff, we are going to the UK this week & I need to pack so will not get to play with all this till we get home!
They had some different to usual colours in the yarn too, what a pity!!
Happy Mother's Day
Lovely work & adorable model!
Congratulations! Walking in the pool is very good for you. I swim but DH walks every day in our local (indoor, in a local hotel health club) pool. He had a hip replacement 2 years ago and walking in the pool was recommended.
I had a hip replacement 5 years ago,all went very well.
I do Aqua Aerobics 3 mornings a week love it & I have been trying to loose weight- I am down 3 stone ( with the help of careful eating)
The AA exercises have toned & strengthend me, we have fun, on my fitbit I average about 3000 steps in 3/4 hour in the pool.
I now have artherits in my knee so walking is not an option.
Continued good health wishes t your DH.
I have used Sculpy to make colour matched buttons for a few projects, cooked them in a Halogen oven which I do use for food, no problems!!
Was your "old" avatar the young boy in the snow, or am I mixing you up with someone else.
Like the new one .
I need a foot-powered computer mouse so I can get more knitting done as I read KP.
I have often had that same thought & for the same reason!!!
Must be some clever person out there who could help us!!!!
I very often do the buttonhole band by picking up the stitches & doing garter stitch & the hole by K1 yo k2 tog
My favourite top down pattern is Little coffee bean. I don't need proper markers after a few rows cos I can "read " the stitches. The markers I use , when necessary, are the little rubber bands children use to make friendship bracelets
Congratulations for sticking to it. I have loved looking at your photos & all the different colour combinations. Well done.
Thank you everybody, I had a very bad fall during the break so have had to take it easy.
