Can't wait for the storms!

More really hot weather here. I've been sat in the sunshine with my little band of knitters. Cody has now done five squares for #sixtymilliontrebles .
Here's one of them



I've got my circular needle out to knit another blanket.


The wool is cotton. I was given a bag of it a while ago and I thought the colours would go nicely for a blanket.
I've also now finished this for my friend whose baby is due at the beginning of next week.


I've done quite a few of these now. I've got one to finish off that I was knitting for my Mum to give to one of her friends whose daughter is due to have a baby at the beginning of September, I've had to wait for her to get another ball of wool as I'd run out.
The weathermen are saying we've got a lot of rain and some thunder and lightning due tonight and tomorrow.  I can't wait!


I hope it's a really good one that clears the air and cools everything down.
The neighbour that I help has been having various tests over the last couple of weeks. She's had some fluid taken off one lung as she can't seem to shift it, she's had some scans and Lung cancer has been mentioned. She's just rung me to say that she's got an appointment through for next Tuesday to get the results. So, positive vibes, prayers whatever you think appropriate would be greatly appreciated.  I really hope that it isn't bad news.
Haircuts are planned for tomorrow and although it's a Bank Holiday this Monday we've not got a lot planned for the weekend.  If the weather's not to hot or wet we may go on a few dogwalks with a picnic involved.
The two youngest are at a friends in his big pool, Cal and Clark have decided to go shopping with Malc so I have some time to myself and as I don't want to waste it I'm off to do some knitting.

  1. The blanket is looking so sweet already and they are lovely colours. I'm just sat at the sewing machine having a go at a basket for the puppy things. It's too hot for me outside. I've had to have a mid afternoon shower!
