Well, I ventured into the wardrobe and inspected all the woollies there - it would appear that the hole I found was an isolated incident, thank goodness! But it has certainly made me think about how I store my knitted garments and I shall be investing in some storage bags in the very near future.

On the knitting front, I finally got round to sewing buttons on a baby cardigan and blocking it. I decided to use a selection of solid colour buttons and I like the effect. It's heading for the gift box for now.

I've started another pair of socks for our friend in Germany. These are a very dark grey, so I won't be knitting them much in the evenings. My eyes just aren't up to it! I have a few weeks to get them finished, so I'm not panicking (yet!)

The somewhat cool summer evenings have lured me back to my Love Squared blanket too this week. I have decided to knit 36 blocks and make a 6 by 6 square blanket. I'm not looking forward to crocheting around the edge of each block, but it will make seaming a whole lot easier. I may also add more of a crocheted border around the whole blanket, depending on how much yarn I have left. I am enjoying watching my rainbow develop - the next blocks will be in dark green.

The garden is looking lovely right now, with so many different flowers in bloom. Here's a few of them ...

June garden

Mr JK and I spent an hour or so wandering around a favourite haunt in Norfolk this afternoon - the gardens at East Ruston Old Vicarage. There is always something different to admire here. I can thoroughly recommend it if you are ever in the area. I put together a few of the (many) photos I took today for you.

The visit was finished off rather nicely with tea and cake - sticky lemon cake for me. Very yummy it was too! Have a good week. xxx

Thank goodness you didn't have a huge moth infestation! That would have been disastrous.
I've just finished my first ever pair of socks. I quite enjoyed them, so I might make some more one day.
I'm doing a lot more knitting these days, as I've joined a local knitting group which I love!
I'll never catch up with you though!
Have a good week xxx

Oh, thank goodness the hole was a one off! The wee baby cardigan is so cute!

Knitting a pair of socks is still on my 'to do' list - I'll get around to it eventually! Beautiful flowers, fabulous knitting and that lemon cake looks divine. Have a great week. xx

Thank goodness...I've had several things destroyed, but by carpet beetles, not the baby cardigan!

Your photos are so inspiring and lovely to look at. Lavender bags are a brilliant way to deter moths and make your clothes smell delicious. I knit little hearts, partially stuff them and add a couple of teaspoons of dried lavender. They last for ages and squishing them reinvigorates the scent.
