Not a hooker and no monsters!!

Evening - how was your day?

Its been another hot one here and the promise that its going to continue into the weekend and beyond.is

It does mean that the strawberries are ripening on a daily basis - today I manage to pick them and use them before the fridge monster appeared!!

Put my strawberry swap jelly to good use :)

Now I've tried hard with the crochet but we just aren't getting each other - I wanted some hooky bunting but that at the moment seems like a distant dream - however not one to be completely defeated, I've been knitting some instead!!

The triangles would also make an interesting cushion cover;

Nine triangles done - another 3 to go

9th one was still on the needles when I took this pic - finished it and number 10 when I watched the tennis this afternoon.

I've also this week finished my 81st blanket square;

Big enough to take camping and to the festival this summer - another 40 squares can be knitted/attached over the winter!!

Came home yesterday from a jaunt into town - no bargains in the CS's - must be too hot to sort/donate. However I did find something on my desk;

MrVV rescued it from the garden after he jammed in the patio doors!!

Got a bit of shock when picking strawberries earlier this week - this little 'fella' was lurking in the damp shaded patch behind the strawberry box - not sure who jumped the highest/furthest - I do know who screamed the loudest though *blush*


Have a great weekend - keep cool and drink Pimms ;)

Love your little knitted triangles. I am sure they would make a lovely cushion.

I would have jumped too if I saw that amongst the strawberries!!

Have a lovely weekend.

Oohh I love your bunting and the blanket is beautiful! I think I may well turn pink with the quantity of strawberries I have gone through these last couple of weeks!

Loving you blanket and I also think knitted bunting is the way forward, it looks fab :-) Hope Mr Frog doesn't like strawberries.

I love the knitted bunting in progress, I've seen crocheted bunting before but never ever knitted, so I cant wait to see the finished item!!
Have a great weekend.

I miss my little frog who used to jump out at me & make me jump !
I'm going to try crochet - The blog friend I met in London is sending me a beginners book.
