Hand dyed yummy goodness... take one ball of Ethical Twist organic wool in cream and dye with yellow and pink food colouring. It reminds me of one of my favourite ice creams, "Raspberry Ripple"
Knitting and Napping!
A cranky girly refusing to comply with an action shot, so...
...here is the vest all buttoned and blocked. Pattern can be found on the Ravelry site under the name "Boheme".
Here are some other pictures of the past week:
Our birthday surprise for Nanna a daisy fridge magnet using old CD's, a photograph, some sugar paper and printed cut out lettering. Sara made the multicoloured rose bouquet with a little help from Benedict. Our big at home girl is currently a serious origami dude!
We had our trip down a local high street as part of our history project and very little had changed over the course of time. The shop owners were very accommodating and here are some of our favourites:
We were here!
One side a butchers and the other...
... bakers, but alas no candlestick maker!
A genuine tailor at work.
An eco friendly and fair trade shop in keeping with the towns claim of one of the first fair trade towns in the world!
Frames made from old bike chains and the bracelets were made from can ring pulls!
Recycled glass from the West Country.
An ornament made from recycled coke cans.
A vase made from rolled and coiled paper from magazines.
All things considered a good enough week!
