I’m really loving this May – the weather has been brilliant all month and I’ve been able to get a LOT of garden-based crochet and knitting done.
I’m currently working on my Last Dance in the Beach (Last Dance in the Garden) blanket… I’ve got three rows joined so far and am working on joining the fourth this weekend!
I’ve also got my Briochealicious shawl on the go…this has taken a slight back-seat recently so I’m cracking on with that again too.
I’m part-way through a new shawl I’ve been designing for the past few weeks. I had an annoying moment where I had to rip out 10 rows as it wasn’t working as I’d planned. Following a re-design this morning, I’m back on track though!
Problem with Garden crochet/knitting, is that you run the risk of the yarn running away! I must dig out my yarn-bowl…!
It’s also the time that my garden is at its most lovely. After all of the hot weather, rain and thunderstorms we have been having over the past couple of days, everything has suddenly come into bloom!
I moved one of my favourite plants, this “Bleeding Heart” earlier in the year and it has JUST flowered for the first time in its new position. Isn’t it pretty!?
My roses are also going mental at the moment (I do love my roses!) and they are all putting on a good show! My pots are also loving the weather at the moment…and I’m loving them too!
Here is a quick collage of the flowers I’m enjoying this afternoon in my garden!
May the garden-crafting continue for many months to come (and not turn into Autumn as soon as May was over, like it felt like it did last year!!)
Hope you’re all having a great weekend! 🙂
What a lovely garden you must have! Beautiful flowers.
thanks. it’s small but I’ve crammed it full of every colour I can! 😂
Your projects all look so perfect in your garden:)
Knitting and crocheting in the garden make me SO HAPPY! 🙂
me too! 😊😊
You have a lovely garden! I am a particular fan of Bleeding Hearts. 🙂
thanks. yes me too. I thought I’d killed it off by accident so very pleased that it’s come back! 😊😊
Two of my favourites. Gardens and crochet. This time of year I find it great for inspiration of colour.
you’re right about the colour inspiration! 😊
I’ve never seen bleeding hearts before, they’re gorgeous! How I wish I had a garden to crochet in…
thanks! you can come keep me company in mine! 😂
What kinds of roses do you have? They’re gorgeous!
so many! I can’t even remember what they are called! thanks :o)
