Mad knitting on a glorious hot day
Its a gorgeous hot day today so I am knitting in the garden with my cricket stumps!! Last month my friend Pat and I were discussing how to knit quickly using big knitting needles and after discussing various items such as tent pegs, broom handles we both came up with the idea of cricket stumps!! I knitted this cushion in 2 nights as I was feeling pretty bad with a a backache so wanted a cumfy cuddly cushion. I am knitting another one in the garden at the moment. Here is a photo of our veg plot in the garden that we are all proud of. The peas are doing very nicely so we will be able to pick them soon. Its such a great experience for my kids and hopefully will encourage them to eat their home grown veg instead of fish fingers and chicken nuggets all the time!!!
