New knitting project and inspiration


Inspired by my mum's beautiful wash cloths, I started knitting this hand towel in grey dk cotton.  I put a moss stitch border on with weave stitch main section.


Last sunday, Mr. Margie and I took a stroll in the bluebell woods at Mass Lough in Ballinakill Co. Laois with some friends, the carpet of bluebell leaves were dotted with vivid deep blue flowers. 


On our return home I noticed the wisteria is just about to flower, a more subtle hue than the bluebells, I have been challenged by nature to begin a blue project next.





        Happy May Day
 


Big hugs,

Margie

Oh Margie, Thanks so much for stopping by my blog ~ you've been on my mind lately and I just adore hearing from you. I do apologize for not stopping by sooner ~ it's been far too long!
I hope you're all doing wonderfully on the other side of that great big pond!

Happy May Day to you! Your washcloth is beautiful! I noticed when we drove south to NYC recently that the wisteria along the sides of the road had already been blossoming (not so here on the Cape yet though). I hope you show us what you create in blue!

I'm sure that many people want to buy comfortable T-shirts this summer. There is a good Franklin Marshall Store which sells high quality and cheap t-shirts.You can have a look at it. Beside t-shirts, Hogan Online also offer high quality shoes with low price. I also like Asics Tiger shoes,very comfortable.
