Still Knitting!!!!

Some of my recent knits.

A little cardi for a friend. Knit in Gorgeous Bamboo yarn by Twilleys. A bit splitty to knit with but really soft result. However I needed to use 3mm needles to get decent tension.

Some hats also for a friend. These I knit with some cottons from my stash. One was a Phildar cotton (blue) and the grey Joanne Sharpe. Really easy knits and very soft

A little sleeveless cardi/dress for a friend's granddaughter. Again a lovely bamboo mix yarn from stash and just had to take a close-up shot of the lovely buttons with gorgeous colours.
And a lovely purple cardi for a friend's baby. This is  a Drops pattern and some Drops cotton yarn. Really love how this one knit up.

Oh my Goodness! It's so long since I even looked at my own blog, when I went to post everything has changed about Blogger. It's just taken me half an hour to upload pictures. And that's another thing, I haven't even been taking any photos lately. Life has just been so busy that I haven't had time to relax and take some. Anyway this is the first step in what I hope will be a frequent return to the land of blogging. I've become so lazy at bothering to write, yet I read lots of blogs and get so much enjoyment from them. It's just so interesting.

These are pictures I took at our National Botanic Gardens in Dublin back in the spring time. I really love visiting here, There's so much to see with the changing seasons. It's a lovely place to wander, or walk and when you're finished have a nice cuppa, or lunch or just a piece of yummy cake as a treat. And it's Free. So when you're in Dublin, make your way there, it's really enjoyable.

Till my next post, which I hope won't be too long away
