Just take your knitting.....

 Went to Trentham Gardens near Stoke upon Trent a couple of weeks ago... it was also a hot day (not as hot as this week has been).  Needless to say there were some nice shops there and of course there was a CRAFT one, so I had to look inside.  And guess what, came out with a ball of wool & needles.  I've started taking knitting wherever I go, if I get a chance especially with a coffee I knit.  Met some really cool folk, as they are curious as to what/why I'm doing it.....I'm just knitting scarves nothing too hard.....
 So whilst the other ladies went for a wander around the garden centre, I found a great spot to knit, have a drink and enjoy the quiet....
but I decided against sitting on this seat.... it was made of stone!!!!
Whilst I write this snatch of my exciting life!!!! I'm boiling hot (its 11.00pm) I've had to undo my bra as it was killing me and I thought what the heck... damn awful contraptions in this weather!  I certainly feel cooler... and with that lovely picture Ciao....


  1. Me too Olive, my knitting or crochet goes everywhere with me. You may remember the concept to crochet a granny square a day but in 6 weeks of "waste" time (lot of it in the car as a passenger) I made a fab double blanket. Glad you are getting out and about and enjoying yourself. Hope to see you soon,
    love Jo x

  2. Ooo Olive I can so relate to the bra contraption. The beauty of not going out much at the moment is that I can let them hang free, lol.
    I too am taking either knitting or crochet wherever I may be and am frantically crocheting granny squares for a blanket for our new abode.
    Lovely to see you blogging, x

  3. LOL, oh my dear Olive, I too remove my bra anytime I can! Hate them so very much. I do miss the days when I was all "perky" (if you know what I mean) and not wearing a bra went unnoticed...for the most part ;0) XO

  4. So if your cars poorly you wont be ladies who lunching on Friday then?

  5. What a fun and interesting place to sit and enjoy your drink while knitting. Of course, that stone bench looks hard, but also cool. I'd take any shade about now, since it's still in triple F digits here every day. Loved the photos, too.

  6. burn your bra Olive! LOL... hmmmm, you are inspiring me to pick up my needles again - it's been a while and I always find knitting so comforting. Off to catch up with what you've been up to. Hope you are well :-) xxx
