Knitwits Yarns knitwitspenzance.co.uk

So for Easter day we did our usual walk to our favourite pub and it's always amazing that the same walk is different every single time. This time there was a definite first for us:

a rather beautiful male adder sunning himself by the path. We managed a few pics before he slithered off and on the way back, in the exact same spot, we met these lovelies coming down for their evening drink:

The path towards the north coast was looking particularly beautiful:

and I was wearing a fetching piece of knitwear(!):

Leaving the pub, late in the afternoon, the cows were coming in for milking:

and T debated whether to ride a semi-wild Shetland pony but decided he was just too big and the pony was just too small!:

A perfect Easter Sunday!

PS: Our royal family is attracting much interest so do come and have a look if you're in the area (and I put the bunting up today as well!).

Happy Holidays

Knitwits Yarns knitwitspenzance.co.uk

As you can see, the Royal Wedding party is complete!

From left to right we have:

a footman with a corgi (with a fetching red, white and blue lead), The Queen and Prince Philip.

Then, we have:

Prince Harry, followed by:

the bride and groom, then:

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall and, finally:

The Archbishop of Canterbury.

The actual knitting was the easy part! The fiddling with all the tiny details was the time consuming part but, ultimately, is what makes them.

They'll be in the shop window from tomorrow for about 2 weeks so, if you're in the area, please come and see them and pop in and say "hi".

Today - as the rest of the country is bathed in boiling sunshine - we have rain. Seriously! It's currently raining down here!!

Happy holidays!!

Teeny Tiny Knitting

Knitwits Yarns knitwitspenzance.co.uk

Whilst I am, predominantly, decorating our house at the moment (pulled the piano out on Monday and, boy, did we find some rubbish behind there including a cable needle and a very small pair of boys' pants [with Bart Simpson on them so, clearly, T's from many years ago])* there is also some knitting going on.

Tracey and I are knitting teeny, tiny fiddly things which, with a Royal Wedding only 23 days away, won't take a genius to work out what they are. They are great fun but unbelievably time consuming for such tiny things and result in a barrage of bizarre texts along the lines of "Harry only has one leg", reply "oh, yes, oops forgot to knit the second" and "does the Queen have shoes?" (she does now).

The aim is to have the entire ensemble in the window (and available to view here) by Good Friday at the latest so if any of you are coming down here for Easter or the wedding weekend or any part of the holidays, please do pop in and say hello.

Meanwhile I am awaiting the arrival of Prince Philip in a sandwich bag.

* Apparently my maternal grandmother used to pull her piano out every week and clean behind it. She is currently spinning in her grave at her slutty grand-daughter.
