I'm here ....... with pics!

Look what we found! It was so exciting to find my first eggs. It's amazing how absolutely perfect they are. I think my girls are very clever and I'm rewarding them big time with fresh spinach and lots of lovely seeds.

I've been doing a little knitting lately. I guess it's because the weather has become cooler and the thought of knitting seems comforting. My knitting skills are pretty average - but lately I've been reading a book which has explained lots of things to me and I've just been giving them a go. I mean if worse comes to worse, I can just rip it out. So, here are some of my winter warmers so far....

 The photo is pretty dodgy - but what can you do when it's just you and the bathroom mirror? This was a lovely pattern from Ravelry called Windy City Hat.

I've also made some fingerless gloves from this pattern. It took me five attempts but I finally figured it out. I'm very happy with them - they were very easy to make and I love the cable pattern.  Have I ever told you how much I love Ravelry????!!!! It's so much fun :)

I'm here

Life's a bit tough at the moment. I went to see a naturopath two weeks ago and i was put on a diet and boy did I suffer some withdrawal symptoms. For over a week I've had headaches, joint aches, lethargy, irritability and anxiety......

But, the good news is, I'm starting to feel better.

This is the reason I've not been blogging - I was going to blog about a beautiful pair of fingerless gloves I made but my photos all turned out blurry and I was too despondent to try again.
I have been knitting a lot lately. I've suddenly realised that if you read the books and do what the instructions tell you, things work out (I have a nasty habit of looking at things and thinking they are 'too hard').
I've also been spending time with my chooks - they are so entertaining. Their personalities have really come out now and we are able to hand feed them which is so much fun. I never thought that I would pass the time by sitting and watching chooks!

Back soon with pictures ;-)
