Time seems to be zooming by. I can't believe that just over 2 weeks ago my grandson Flynn was born. We all went to a very good friend of the family's wedding at the weekend, taking Flynn with us.
I just wanted to show you his very posh wedding outfit.
He was such a good boy, even behaved himself through the speeches.
My daughter Jess and her partner went on holiday for two weeks, so this little boy came and stayed.
I say little but he's only 6 months and quite big.
I forgot how much energy puppy's have and how much attention they need. I had toys strewn from one end of the house to the other and as fast as I was putting them away, they were out again. He loved going over the fields for a run and running seemed effortless to him.
He's gone home now and the house seems too quiet. I think my two dogs are quite releived, they are 10 and 9 and I think he was too energetic for them.
I want to tell you about a brilliant book I have just read. I have always said my reading genre was adult Fantasy, but my kids tell me I shouldn't call it that as it sounds like I'm into porn. They call it Sword and Sorcery.
I know we all have different reading tastes, so if there are any of you that like reading "Sword and Sorcery" I fully recommend you read "The Painted Man" by Peter V Brett. I haven't got much crocheting done these last couple of weeks because of this book. I have been glued to it. And when I finished it, I was straight onto Amazon, looking to see if there was a second book. Not only did I find the second book called "The Desert Spear" I found the third called "The Daylight Wars".
I have read all three in just under two weeks and now feel a bit deflated as its finished and I have to wait for Mr Peter V Brett to finish the fourth.
"So if you do happen to read the odd crochet blog Mr Brett, can you please HURRY UP, I need to know what happens next".
As for crocheting, I have completed another wrap/shawl. This is my 4th one and its for my daughter Amie. She picked a lovely yarn called "Araucania", its a hand dyed yarn from Chile and it was lovely to work with, when made up it feels all soft and springy.
Originally she picked a shawl from Ravelry called Southbay Shawlett, then when she was looking at my blogs, she found a shawl that Meredith from Mereknits had made, called "Elise Shawl" and decided that it was a nicer one. Meredith said she got it completed in four days and was so easy to do. It did take me longer than that, maybe just over a week, but I blame Mr. Brett, for writing such a brilliant book.
It was a lovely shawl to make and as Meredith said easy and quick.
Now to perhaps finish one of my WIP's. Or start making my Christmas list of who I want to make for and what to make them.
See you soon ladies, take care.
