Weekend

Well!!!! It certainly feels good to know that I am amongst such like minded peeps in that there will be no problems prattling on about Christmas. Indeed many of you are already code red (white and green) excitement and preparation wise. Good ! Speaking of people that are here, Hello!, to all my friends who regularly swing by, to any new commenter's and to those of you who, I KNOW are there but don’t say much, welcome. You all make my day, in fact life so thank you oh so much. Ooo and to the lady on Ravelry who found out about the scarf project here and is trying to whip up interest at your knit and chatter group, an especially warm welcome.
This weekend was pretty busy and I managed a few snaps. Friday shopping in Harrogate, I saw this. Gorgeous in its own rite but the name on the side!!!!! Lulabelle!!! My mum calls me that, in fact its my flickr name too. I just love these little things. This one was a sarnie shop.

Anyway we went to Leeds city centre on Saturday (comic book shop visit) The place is huge and rambling and full of Victorian shopping Arcades, I guess the modern day equivalent of a Mall. This one has always been a favourite, the shops are quite posh too. Lovely though don’t you think?

Sunday had us at a family Lunch in Huddersfield. My niece has gone away to college to train to be a doctor. We are all so proud and excited for her. I remember her at my wedding, she wasn’t even walking.

My scarf is finished now and I am planning a blog post dedicated to its journey to York where it will be used to raise money for breast cancer care. I am waiting for Louise's scarf to arrive before I do that. Its going to be a thank you / reward to her for taking part.
On top of that I have been frenziedly making squares for the Christmas blanket. I am beyond excited about it and get up each day at 6 ish to do a square. This is the pile so far.

I am having bother with blogger. If you struggle to leave a message, refresh the page and try again. It worked for me.

  4. Love your scarf!!! Can't wait until you receive mine so we can 'see' them side by side. The squares for your C blanket are really lovely. I think I might like to start one of these, but I am trying to display some self control and not start ANOTHER project until I finish at least something I have on the go right now.
