it seems I've finally got rid of the pesky flu ,I'm still coughing but at less it isn't constant. It's Good Friday I'm not deeply religious ,but my mum is a devout Catholic . She rang last night to remind me to tell the family not to eat meat today , she does this every year I'm not sure why she seems to think I'm not going to observe this rule that has been ingrained in my life forever. It's sweet really I think she thinks I'm still a little girl .
My my ,what a beautiful sunny morning .We started the day with smoked salmon and eggs with delicious hazelnut coffee. It will end today with good old fish n chips . Haddock for me with freshly made tartare sauce and lemon . I'm spending the day blogging , catching up with your blogs and some hooky goodness tonight .
I spotted this yarn on Instagram ,it's from the three bears yarn .co.uk website . It's cotton called affection. It is a double knit .
. I'm not going to lie I did struggle with the pastel tones ,a life time of not using pastel colours is difficult to overcome. I'm one who prefers deeper tones but I persevered .I once again settled on my Catherine pattern , I think it looks rather good, don't you ?
Two rows of pastel followed by a row of white breaks it all up and makes it harmonious and pleasing to my eye . I love the undulating pattern , it's very addictive . I think I'm warming to the pastel shades, incidentally , my Catherine pattern is available on Ravelry if you go to my side bar you can ether click on the image or go to 'buy my designs on Ravelry sign ' at the very top of my blog .
