This morning.

This is what we woke up to this morning here in North Wales.We had a lovely walk into town.The snow was really crunchy.The forecast for tonight is for it to get down to minus 5.Going to be very tricky tomorrow!!!!

Progress so far.

 This is how far I have got with the Sweet Pea blanket.Apologies the colours are not true but I am getting fed up with the green.Green was the colour of my school uniform so not my favourite colour.I think I have got about six rows to do to keep up with CAL.

I have been held up because I was doing a bit of scarf making.Chester Cathedral are having a knitting exhibition with various scenes from the Bible.I am not a church person but am interested in the knitted scenes.They are partnering with ShareAid which is a Chester/North Wales charity which helps the homeless and refugees.They are having what they are calling the River of Life which will be made of scarves,fish etc running from the Chapter House into the Cathedral.So I have knitted two scarves for the project and delivered them yesterday.The exhibition starts on Saturday and runs for about three weeks.More details on Chester Cathedral website.I got to know about it rom when my OH played his ukulele there in December.

Yesterday was a beautiful day with blue skies but cold.We had a walk in Ness Gardens and had them almost to ourselves.There were lots of snowdrops out and a couple of witch hazels.I do like witch hazels.

My OH bought me some freesias,yellow and orange.Lovely.I am waiting for the first daffodils to appear in the shops.

Today it is grey but we are going out to lunch just to a Brewers Fayre .Cheap and cheerful but it saves cooking.

Sweet Pea blanket.

 I am ready to start my Sweet Pea blanket designed by Lucy at Attic 24.I have put a sample of each shade on a lolly stick just in case I lose the ball band(as recommended by Lucy)
I have got a new phone so I hope this works and my photos are of a better quality.It is a Samsung Galaxy J6.Fingers crossed.
Anyone else doing the CAL?
