Sunday catching up

Last week we had some record breaking temperatures here in the UK.  Monday & Tuesday were particularly hot, Monday was the hottest July day ever recorded!  We don't get very many days like that here, and I think I am thankful for that, it was just too much.  Of course that sort of weather also brings thunder storms, and we have had a couple of good ones, Friday night/Saturday morning was a really good one, right overhead for sometime.  I love a good storm, don't you?

So, while we have been breaking heat records I have been getting ready for when the weather turns, by knitting up a scarf :-)


I used James C Brett Chunky with Merino, the pattern is a Patons freebie I found on-line. 

I love how it turned out :-)

Something that I forgot to share last time was this...

My new car :-)

I've had it since June 15th and I absolutely LOVE it.  Its a Citroen DS3, in case you are wondering, and it a dream to drive :-)

That's all for now, I'm off to catch a bit of TV time.

Until next time

I love the shape of the new DS3, out of my budget though!!
Great scarf, what a lovely pattern, the pom poms finish it off so beautifully.

I think the weather patterns have changed all over the world, and it is NOT good! More extremes, from one end to the other! Ugh! What a really nice scarf you made... the pom poms are perfect on the ends! Hugs!

It's that hot where I live every day, but I do enjoy the sunshine. I love the color of your new scarf, that is one craft I have yet to pick up.
