Easter treats

What a lovely weekend, i finished my cardigan for little O (pattern found here if you're interested). i am really pleased with how this turned, only wish i'd made it even bigger (i did put in a couple of extra increases)
she seems pretty happy with it too. It's knitted in Rowan wool cotton & i love this colour, think it was called 'cypress'. It's so soft & was really lovely to knit with.
we've had easter egg hunts, indoors due to the inevitable rain here! although we did get out for a (rather wet & muddy) walk, on which we saw some of the cutest lambs (i think it would be safe to say they were 'frolicking'),
we also made a trip down to Littlehampton to meet up with my sister & see the 'chocolate toast building' (as we shall now be referring to it) it's really called the 'east beach cafe'
unfortunately we didn't get to have our lunch there as we hadn't booked, but we did go to the 'west beach cafe' where we had tasty fish & chips before a rather bracing walk along the pebbles.

today however has been a real treat, as the sun has been shining, so after a (very successful) trip to a car boot sale this morning (will share my bargains when i get round to taking some photos) we spent a lovely afternoon in the garden.


  1. Sounds like a lovely Easter Weekend. I think the cardigan is really lovely. Just need to increase it enough for a grown up!!


  2. Oh that is a great cardi and i just love the shot of the jumping lambs...xx

  3. Lovely Easter! I didn't get to a car boot, but hope to soon. Love that little cardigan, you are a great knitter!

    Have a great week!
