SatCap day

I haven't done one of these for a while, but if you've seen Ojo's world the last couple of days, you would know I had a new camera for Christmas! Yay!
 
So having a little play, I did this.............
 
 
Creepy or what?! haha
 
So its over to you........What do you say?
 
I think it screams.........."I'll be back" (Arnie style)

Meal plan Monday

Winter is well and truly settled in, and I think my meals are reflecting it this week. When I looked at it before writing, I realised that all the meals after school were comfort foods. Any way, here goes....

Pinaddicts Slouch Hat

This is my first attempt at joining in a Pinaddicts post. Firstly I'd like to say............Up Yours Liz Jones!! This is my knitting post, I like to knit! So what! For those of you that are reading this and have no idea what I'm talking about.....a journo managed to upset the whole blogging community. She insulted just about everyone by making us sound like ignorant stay at home mums, that do nothing but knit, make cupcakes and ignore our children. Well I personally love to knit, my cupcakes always look like crap, and I couldn't possibly ignore my children...........I've tried!!

Any hoo......The idea is, I see something I like, I pin it to pinterest, make it, then blog about it! simples!

I learnt to knit when I was a child, my mum and my nan knitted and taught me. I've never really had much of an interest in keeping it up until recently. If you've read my blog, you will know that I have been suffering lately, and because I can't move much, I started knitting again to ease the boredom.....and love it!!

I've started with a scarf, then a pair of wrist warmers. Then I came across a pattern here...devinlikestoknit so I pinned it and got cracking! I found the way the pattern was written very easy to follow for a 'novice' knitter. 

So here are pictures of the process, from the cabling to the finished product......

The Cabling....not as hard as I thought it would be!
Starting the decrease



Pulled around a plate, after being dampened with warm water.

The finished product!!! On my head!!

An Autumn Day At the Beach

This was 2 weekends ago, a trip to Barry Island. Think Gavin and Stacey!
 
It really was a stunning day, and I decided to test out my camera.
 
Let me know what you think....
