This song is taken from Michael W Smith’s’s album called “Sovereign” I have been listening to it a lot lately & this is one of my favourite songs.
Cast on your required number of stitches.
1) Knit all stitches for one row.
2) *Purl 1, slip 1 stitch purl wise with yarn in front,* repeat across row.
Repeat rows 1 & 2 until your square is big enough & cast off.

Moss stitch is similar to rib in the sense that you knit 1 & purl 1 however after the 1st row instead of knitting & purling where you did so before you do the opposite.
Cast on your stitches.
Knit 1, Purl 1 repeat across the row.
On the next row knit where you’ve purled & purl where you’ve knitted repeat this across all rows.
This creates a bobble affect called Moss Stitch.
Sorry for the lack of…
So the bottom of the pallet window box had me thinking.
The rest of the pallet wood was too thin to be nailed to the bottom so I was stuck for a while trying to think of a way to seal the bottom.
In the end i decided that I didn’t want to use wood as it would raise the window box up too high.
So…..in the end I took some sturdy cardboard, covered it in plastic & using my mum’s staple gun (thanks mum!) I stapled it to the bottom.
Taking the rest of the plastic I placed it into the window box & stapled it to the sides.
This means that the soil never actually touches the wood so it won’t warp from the moisture.
Next I potted up my succulents & venus fly trap.
I’m really pleased with the outcome.
I haven’t got round to varnishing the wood yet but as I’m a very impatient person I couldn’t wait to pot up my plants once I’d sorted out the bottom of the box.
I will varnish is eventually, just need to remember to buy varnish the next time I’m in B&Q!!
Cast on the relevant number of stitches for your square.
Row 1) Knit all stitches.
Row 2) Knit 1, Purl 1 Repeat this to the end of the row.
Repeat rows 1 & 2 until your square is the correct size.
Broken rib creates a flat rib on one side & moss stitch on the other.
It is one of my favourite stitches.
Where I work we occasionally have deliveries on pallets & I have been trying to work out how to get one in my car to take home & get creative with.
I managed to fit one of the smaller ones in the other week & have had it taking up space in the flat while I find time to break it apart.
Starting to saw this one to pieces.
I have been wanting a window box in the kitchen window for a while now, so I…
This week we are going to knit our squares in Rib Stitch.
Begin by casting on the relevant number of stitches for your square.
To create a rib we knit one stitch (K1) then we purl one stitch (P1) this is repeated across the row.
On the next row we knit one where there is a knit stitch & we purl one where there is a purl stitch.
Continue knitting like this until your square is the right size &…
One of my all time favourite meals to eat is (what I call) Summer Eggs.
It is so quick & easy to cook & so easy to adapt to what you have in the fridge.
I cooked a new variation the other night & thought I would share it with you.
Salt & Pepper (& any herbs you like)
• Add oil to a frying pan & mix in all your chopped veg & bacon lardons.
Add some salt & pepper to season & any additional herbs you may have.
• Cook the veg for a few minutes until they start to become tender.
• Make a hole in the centre of the veg & crack in your eggs. (When I make this for myself I normally have two.)
• Cover the pan with a lid or foil & cook for 3 minutes or until the eggs are done to your liking.
• Serve (I like to serve in a bowl & mash up the eggs a little but B prefers it all on a plate as is.)
The great thing about this recipe is you can basically put in what you want. I normally don’t have bacon lardons but fancied a change so gave it ago.
Have fun experimenting!
Cooking: Summer Eggs One of my all time favourite meals to eat is (what I call) Summer Eggs. It is so quick & easy to cook & so easy to adapt to what you have in the fridge.
Hopefully you have chosen your wool & have decided how big you want your squares to be.
In this first square we are going to knit using the basic knit stitch on every row to create the garter stitch.
The only thing we need to concentrate on in this square is our stripes.
