...it has been a while since I updated and there are a couple of good reasons for that:
1. I am lazy.
2. The t'interweb connection has been doo-wappy. Yes, that is the technical term. And it has only got worse since that thing that involves over-paid children, sorry, men chasing balls around a course, sorry, the World Cup started - the neighbours all seem to be watching the blasted games on the computer. I am making this assumption because the connection has disappeared entirely during matches/innings/whatever.
Anyway, I'm still knitting the "Lacy Ladders" scarf - more so since the advice on what I am doing with YOs. Thank you. No picture today, sorry. There have still been a few mistakes but, thankfully, it's a very forgiving pattern.
I spent Sunday afternoon making some curtains for my Mam. Well, I started one and will make the other one next weekend. I'm not actually finishing them until I go to visit as I can't remember the drop measurements... so I don't want to make them too short.
So, here are two pictures that show you the curtain (in theory) without actually showing you the curtain.
An example of how not to make a neat hem. There isn't enough material left to turn a decent hem - folding the material to hide the raw edges, but I'm having to make do with what I have.
In gardening related news... I have turned this bald lawn monstrosity (date - May 2nd)...
...into this toxic-green lawn of loveliness!
There's still a bald patch under the shrubs to the left of the lawn but that's thirst related. I think I'll try some Miracle Grow next. And no, it's not green because the moss has come back! :-)
