Aren't they glossy and superb looking? CHARMING and oh soooooooo delicious!
And tasted a few more macaroons: salted caramel and burnt vanilla? YUMMEEE!
The words were too too much and no diagrams but got there in the end and like I said once it's established and you ''get'' the pattern it's up and away, I've put helpful notes on Ravelry here:
The only tricky bits are how to start and end each row: is it a simple dc or a TR ( endings) and do you start with a ch and dc or a 5ch?
Late in the afternoon we finally went for a walk which I'd been waiting for and pining for since 8 am! It was SUNNY then, but even after waiting until 3:36 pm JJ and Miss E were to busy so it was Miss Y , the dogs and myself who set off happily.
First we looked at the deer: see? Three heads with antlers...
Waited ages for JJ to pick us up, should have called ambulance?
And poor sleep due to the ribs, sooooooo UNCOMFORTABLE! ( putting it mildly)
Any how to end on a positive note, I will re- invent a new birthday date when I can do the planned things and have cake and cards and so on ( mostly cancelled) AND learn from all this something good.
By the way at least it didn't rain when I'd done it! I lay quite nice and dry while waiting to be driven home!
