Peri and Gilly are so happy it is cool. On our walk today I mostly saw two pairs of clean heels!! I can just make out that Peri is rolling in something smelly.
Behind the tree Gilly found a section of dry bony spine. It was a trophy. Still, she dropped it when I used my deep commanding voice. Peri had a good look, but as it wasn't a succulent juicy new bone, she decided to give it a miss.
When we came home, I wanted to take a 'before' photo of the paving. I am going to use a dog friendly weed killer made from vinegar, salt and washing up detergent to kill the weeds sprouting up between the pavers. Obviously The Labradors have a secret Instagram account and wanted to post Selfies!!!
The weedkiller can be made without salt, as it can make the soil unfit for use. Since this is between the pavers, I think it will be fine. So here's the 'before'. I'll wait a week or so and see what the 'after' shows.
More knitting has ensued. I finished the tiny Socktical Magic socks,
and I have started MrsDrWho's Channel 2 Socks. The colourway is Test Pattern in Patonyle Magic. I remember when I was little we only had two TV channels: Channel 2 or the ABC and Channel 6 or TVT6. There was even Channel 5a. This colourway represents quite closely the Test Pattern on the TV when colour arrived. Imagine, TV wasn't on all twenty-four hours a day. What did we do???
And finally The Dilly Dilly Bonnet. Yes, that is me modelling it, so it is a rather stretchy eyelet lace pattern!! This is for Jet the Dog's niece. I knitted this in 5ply, on 4mm needles, so there may have been a little vamping to get it right in the end.
Tomorrow I am visiting Jet's Mum for lunch and we are going to do some knitting. I like knitting or sewing with friends. I'm not sure what I will cook, it has to be something that I can make between coming home from a walk and going out a few hours later. So not a pavlova or the Republican Slice!! Perhaps Nectarine cake?? I made cupcakes from this cake recipe and they were delicious. I will just need to find some nice fresh fruit.
And now, since everyone else has gone to bed, I'll make a cup of Evening Tea to help me feel sleepy, and join them!!
