A quick crocheting update, this weekend started well with a gauge swatch for the Rebel cardigan
for which I show the picture above as well as the link to the pattern on Ravelry.
I am doing the Craftsy Class with this tutor and thus did a really proper swatch and washed and dried it too!
I am using King Cole bamboo cotton in navy, a 15 mm knitting needle and a 3.5 mm hook here.
Alas it turned out too loose and I haven;t worked the next swatch yet, the one without the mistake and using a 12 mm needle and 3 mm hook?
Last week in a lunch break I saw a fun pattern online in ravelry pages that I just HAD to try: I need to make a present for Sister who is having her jubilee soon and what better than a ( prayer) shawl?
It's a fab free pattern called I promise you pineapples:
Now I have always wanted to do those so I just started Sunday and COULD NOT STOP!
it's a highly addictive wonderful pattern: could not put it down as In caught up with the Honourable Woman and the Village on BBC I-player?
This is what I did Sunday ? After I'd been to Stonor Park- more of that on a later post.

This will be part 1 a quick snapshot of a wonderful week in Devon...
We'd had a great June and July and I was already browner than I have been in years, all UK sunshine.
I took along this project:| a mini granny square border as a yoke for a sleeveless tank top to wear in all the very hot weather?
