Mums are fab and hooking outdoors

Just been a visiting with my dearest Mummy. She had a hospital visit today bless her but even so managed a bit o’ shopping and then a fab lunch. Even though ll this went on she bought me these t-r-u-e-l-y gorgeous cake tins because I had me cupcakes in a PLASTIC box!!!

I had a busy day today. I got up and the sun was shining so I thought SPUDS. Yep the potatoes needed planting and I am a fair weather kind of Gal so I was out there (not early)  with my jogging pants, (not for jogging, let me tell you there are 2 reasons why I don’t jog. The left one and the right one) and my hair in a (tiny) pony tail much to Thomas’ giggles. No makeup, V V attractive!! What helped was 2 things. My ipod (does that amaze you?) Lots of petshop boys!! And Cath Kidston gardening gloves, a Christmas present from a dear friend.

I had a warm bath after, wary of not being able to move tomorrow!!!!!!!! Anyhoo I am going to leave you all with a challenge. I was thinking the other day about the fact that I like to crochet on the deck come the nice weather. That is about the most exotic it gets for me, outside. I hook on holiday, no way I can go 2 weeks without it. Anyway here is the challenge. I want to know the most unusual place where you have played hooky (knitters welcome too) and please let me know. I will believe anything !!!!! If you can blog it and send me the link all the better. I am going to take a hook and camera wherever I go this weekend, for a bit of fun, and see what we can come up with. Early I know but I have wine right now, have an awesome weekend and get hooking all over the place. XXX L

  1. Wow I didn't know you were a veggie gardener as well as a hooker! (sorry I meant crocheter) just like me then! I have hooked down at the allotment - in the Trading Hut whilst I was "on duty" Here's the link:

  2. Good luck with your veggie garden. I don't do lots of crocheting because a prefer beading and so I haven't really crocheted outside of the house but I have beaded on the train and on the beach!
    Hope you have a nice sunny weekend.

  3. Your gardening attire sounds remarkably like mine!!! Including the iPod with numerous Pet Shop Boys songs which must be sung along to very loudly and badly. I am not so fortunate to have fancy gloves - I usually end up ruining the washing up gloves.
    Can't say I have done any hooking anyway unusual - just taking the crochet to the park around here gets all kinds of looks!
    Just a follow up to your comment about the bunny pattern - I would like to think I was a genius to be able to knit it, but I would have to say for myself I thought it was pretty easy :-)
    Have a lovely day!

  4. I crochet by the side of the swimming pool while the kids have their lessons - otherwise pretty much at home only.
