Morning all, hope you are all well and coping in this heatwave that we're having at the moment. I must admit that I find it too hot, especially at night.
I've still managed to do some knitting, despite the heat LOL !!, and have knitted this bride bunny for a friend of mine. Her daughter is getting married in July. The pattern is a booklet by Alan Dart, and has the bride, groom, bridesmaid and a chimney sweep.
The bouquet is made up of loads of bullion knots. A bit like a french knot, but you wrap the wool over about 6 or 7 times before returning the needle. Also whereas in a french knot the needle returns to the same hole, in a bullion knot the needle returns further along, to give room for the knot to lay in a line.
Other news.....the kitchen is coming along nicely now, with the worktops due to be installed tomorrow. My husband has just got to paint the walls, lay the flooring, install the dishwasher, fit the overhead island light shades.....oh and TIDY UP LOL !!!!!!!!!
We go on holiday Friday....so he better pull his finger out !!
Bye for now. xx
