Funny lookin' bird....

Having pretty much fully recovered from whatever nasty bug has been afflicting him recently, Archie has decided that the (sadly empty at this point in time) bird bath is to be his new throne....

Could he be any more smoochable?!

I've also just finished this simple knitted shawl, made from a gorgeous yarn that I got at online from Knitshop. The yarn is made up of 2 plies - one linen and one cotton, and knits up into a really interesting, textured fabric. The colours are fantastic too - this one is kinda gold and pewter. I also have it in a red colourway. Unfortunately the pictures don't really do it justice. Not really sure what I'm going to do with this. I don't think I know anybody that would wear it! :-(

More soon

  1. Hello!
    Archie is such a gorgeous cat :D The weather has been wonderful here too and my cats are totally sunbathing.
    Lovely shawl. I know what you mean. I often knit something and I don't know what to do with it...
    Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  2. Archie is lovely! He looks just right in the bird bath! The shawl looks good-you could use it to enhance furniture maybe-as a small throw. Or not. Hmmm!

  3. Archie is so beautiful, basking in the sunshine. I do hope summer has arrived!
