Beltane has been and gone but as it is still May here is a photo of a headdress made by Elaine Lawton of the Shropshire Pagan group for the Clun Green Man festival. The Erssie Knits crochet pattern was previously published in the Beltane issue of the Anticraft last year.

I remember clearly the beautiful day we spent in the fields taking pics of the other Beltane project as well. Especially as it was not long after that we had to part company with our faithful hellhound Jem.

T
his leads me on to mention, we had our home check by a lovely couple yesterday, with their own lurchers, and we are awaiting the result. I am hoping we have an ideal home, the only thing that could possibly hold it up for us, is that lurchers can easily scale a fence, so we need to fix at least a 6ft one with no skinny gaps underneath. We are also going to get a new patio done so it had better be a good summer!

Alas, still no current pics of knits that are WIP because they are all in a private confidential gallery, unlikely to be released publicly until the end of the year!

I will still be bringing pics and features to this blog though, and let you know about all the crafty gossip in our lives. There will be the odd Erssie Knits pattern cropping up in the usual places, will keep you posted.


Here's a pic of 'The Boys' last year, I hope the boy on the right can understand we are not replacing him when he looks down and sees a new dog lying in his old house getting the same privileges he used to enjoy!

There's no comments on the above post so I'll leave mine down here, I'm sure you'll spot it, even though I know you're not a comment slut, well done about the dog! I wish I had time to knit for you, I can get guage! One of the girls in my knitting group is a really tight knitter and has to go up at least 2 needle sizes!
