What am I talking about? You may ask your self…..well it is that the original pattern …
yes a knitting pattern smiles….
“The Joker and the Thief ” is all worked up with many fun and wonderful colours ,gorgeous for sure.
Leave it up to me though,I wanted to see how this pattern by Melanie Berg would look in just one colour. My KnitSwissYarns Fingering Merino Silk I used for this pattern is a very light tone on tone and in the right light will have a hint of purple, though the may colour is dark gray.
Loved the pattern and the distinct row of the 8 stitches add a definite interest to this shawl design. I truly enjoyed knitting this shawl up for my friends Ursi back home…..we enjoyed a truly fun time together in September on our Rhein River holiday.
Never expected this when my husband and I looked at stepping-stones last evening.
Don’t think I ever had turkeys that close to me…smiles.
Black Spanish Turkeys
Love how regal they both held up there heads….look at how amazing there colouring is!
Even had lots of geese waddling around us as we wandered around with the owner looking at stones I thought…!
Now I am interested in these Turkeys telling me how it is living here….hahah…gobble gobble.
Chicken where all in there coop and just out of curiosity (Thought of you Ave) I ask if he had Silkies or a Giant chicken? But he did not have them anymore.
What an experience to see ….
“150 Canada Celebration Tulip”
White And Red I thought…..but Yellow and Red mine are…
Smile “Nature” has it’s own way.
They where to be pure white with red. Was it to be red Maple Leaves from what I hear?
Magical I guess they are now.
I was kind of surprised too when the one of 50 bulbs I planted last Fall opened up YELLOW with red markings….
Really?! was my first initial thought…..
Finally…today we have some sunshine for my 50 Tulips to all open up…and it looks like I have more than 50 heads yehhh……yes all in light yellow… but one. Look at the one that looks like Micky Mouse Ears.
very pretty and with jagged edges… like someone did some paper cutting all though the edges.
Have to say there is not much white to them ….but who cares they are pretty and
on really super tall stems too. I hope they will last for at least two weeks.
And I am sure we all will have a fun 150 Year Canada
even if our tulips are Yellow with Red…
Happy 150 Year Canada…
Yes finally something fresh again from my garden….Rhubarb is ready for some good stuff. I love to make this flan we call “Weihe” in Switzerland. So yummy and soooo easy to make too.
Make a pastry from flour, butter, water, vinegar and salt. Let it rest for about 1 hour in fridge. Roll the pastry out and place in backing dish, add the cut up rhubarb. Place in oven for 10 min. Now add the egg,milk and sugar mix to the flan backing in oven for another 45 min or till egg mixture is solid.
Ohhh sooo yummy
