What a weekend it's been! We've had SO much rain here, it's just been heavy shower after heavy shower, so it limited what we could do really. I was tempted to go to one of those 'pick your own' farms, but boyfriend wasn't too up for it... We did find a Mirabelle plum tree just up our road, so I'm super pleased about that! Can't wait for the fruit to ripen so I can make some nice jam!
Anyway, have been doing lots of knitting. I found this pattern for a dog shaped draught excluder and it looked so cute I just couldn't resist. I'm not too sure if the pattern is correct because what I'm getting is a little different from the photo... I have to say, I started knitting not very long ago (around last winter), so I'm slowly (but surely!) improving my skills. I started with a simple scarf, then moved on to a slightly more elaborate one (see photo, it's a zigzag pattern, it's made with cotton tape and Rowan wool, I absolutely love it!), and then I made some baby booties. But I'll come back to those some other day. Anyway, I need help! I need to block some of the body parts of my dog (this sounds a bit weird I know!) and I've never done this before. I'm slightly confused by the whole process, could someone please tell me how to do it properly? Thank you!
