This place is just beautiful isn't it? It's the Damflask resevoir on the edge of the peak district. It's a 6 mile round walk and the views are spectacular, you get meadows, woodland, and perfect scenery from every angle. The little village it's situated next to is called Bradfield and it's the perfect olde worlde village with cricket on the green, old fashioned ice cream and ale outside the pub. All the spectators were sitting on wooden chairs eating little sandwiches (pity my battery died by then and we didn't take the camera). We shall definately be going again, and maybe to the pub ;)

It's another Forest Canopy Shawl and it's pretty bright! My intention is to make this huge to snuggle in (cos camping has been mentioned ;))
I've also been told I look like i'm flying the flag for Gay Pride but it's fab so there! ner ner :P
Well it cheered me up...the view out of the window aint all that...August? it never is, is it?
Yes after my last post I did indeed amble off and cast on for Wicked from Zephyr Style (i'll bung a link in later). However, after 4 times I thought it was not meant to be...then I realised that 8 does not go into 124 and i'd actually done it righ the first time.
It went into the depths that are 'down the side of the Sofa', but I thought about it all night and how much I liked the jumper and it's lovely little kangaroo pocket and how I could hide stuff in it's usefulness. So I decided I could have it's shape and make it mine...here it is!!
ok sorry for the disappointment of the photo...but i've done an honeycomb type of stitch instead of the cables...when I get the increases out of the way, i'll get a better shot. The Aran is quite nice (yes it is acrylic) but at £2.50 for 550g who cares, it's soft!

This little experiment was finished last week and as usual I posted pics of the finished article everywhere but here, (which means those who read here will have already seen it Doh!)
Anyhow here's Cobbled (together) Cable.
I'm actually quite liking the new set up of uploading pics...which for some reason won't work in Opera but will in AOL. So you can expect some playing around with fonts etc...I'm just going to bob off and cast on Wicked in some bargain aran I found yesterday.
