There is only one word for the weather cold, very very cold, after another heavy frost last night, at the end of this piece I have put a picture of my garden at 10am GMT today Sunday 28Th November 2010. I don't think I can remember snow being this early, they say in Scotland its three weeks early, but down here it must be at least a month for a cold snap, which we seem to always get before Christmas. The sooner this goes the better. Not looking forward to going back to work tomorrow, dosed up with pain killers and doing a round around a sheltered scheme, but that's part of my job
and I am not moaning about it, just its going to be rather cold.
Today I bring you my knitted Christmas Cupcakes, I put them on my craft table yesterday at Cheese and Grain in Frome for the first time and sold all six to one customer. Now I am knitting as fast as I can because I have another craft table on Saturday, one if we don't get 6 foot of snow and two if I am well enough. I used dark green DK wool for the base and white for the top and then a poinsettia pattern from Heidi's knitting room
I did change the pattern slightly by casting on 7 sts and doing an increase row to 15 sts, then working a few rows of pattern before doing the rest of the petals separately.
I place a coloured bead in the middle, and stiffing the petals.
This is my garden today, not a lot a snow but enough for this winter. as you can see my garden is on a slope, the cream wall in the back ground is where my garden ends. Its a long garden.
