Thank you for all your lovely comments about my crochet blanket. I am really pleased with it, in fact I'm sure it will pop up many more times in the background of my blog photos. It makes me smile every time I see it not to mention the loving little caresses I give it as I pass. (bonkers eh?)
To all of you who say you are hoarding wool to start your own granny. Hooray, get started now, you don't need all that much yarn. My blanket only took 800g of inexpensive acrylic/wool mix, that's just 8 x 100g balls. ( I purchased about 3 times as much thinking it would take shed loads of wool) So it looks like I'll have to start another one!
I've just ran downstairs to put some washing out and on my way back took this photo looking through the banister at my beloved blanket. (so sad)
Right if you are all ready we'll go for a walk as promised. Its quite a long one but at the end I'll give you a sneaky peek at whats on my sewing table at the moment!
Muket to Keld in Swaledale and back over the Buttertubs Pass.
We're heading to the hill in the centre of the picture and then we'll go left.
Love these mossy rocks.
Our first view of Keld.
After a quick cuppa and sarnie we detour through the campsite to view a waterfall.
Then back on our circular route to...
climbing gently upwards.
We'll follow the river.

Looking backwards at where we've been.
A breather and a paddle.
Muker is in sight
Isn't this wall of flowers beautiful, this wall inspired my Swaledale Wall Hanging

back to the car, even sneaky dog looks tired.
driving over the Buttertubs Pass
there is a sheer drop on the left, hence the barrier.

Here is my very untidy sewing table. You might be able to spy two little kittens on the table (not real ones!) One is knitted, but the other is crocheted and is made from my very own pattern, (inspired by the knitted one, which is not my pattern.) which I'm looking forward to sharing with you if you would like it.
So get those crochet hooks ready for next time.
