Knit one, purl one.

After a sleepless night on Monday, I was too tired yesterday to concentrate in the sewing room. So instead I sat downstairs with Sir David Attenborough for company. (I have several of his DVD collections). He took me on a world tour and introduced me again to lots of wonderful animal and plant life, while I knitted. I had found a simple hat pattern and wanted to give it a try. Turns out it was too simple, so I made a flower and added that.
Here it is being modelled by my angle poise lamp! The button in the centre of the flower really is very pretty and this picture just doesn't show it off.
(I did ask this guy to model my hat, but he just didn't look right! )LOL
Once the hat was completed to my satisfaction I got on with some more rows of my rippling blanket, remembering to add colour changes.
It's mums day off work today, so we're off out for lunch. She is hoping I'll accompany her and one of my nieces to the wildlife park, but I would rather sit home and sew. I really do feel that my glass of annual leave is now less than half full, there are so many more things I want to do, before it all runs out.
