Last year, in April, I was in a quandry about which colours to use in my Coastal Cosy blanket – and you dear readers helped me out – pinks or no pinks that was the question.
I finished the blanket back in the Autumn, but have been waiting for a suitable sunny day to take it to the beach for its Ta Dah! moment.
there was a bit of resistance to climbing that hill but after seeing this sign
chatting about exploding cows got us to the top
walking through coconut scented gorse bushes towards Flowers Barrow and looking inland at Lulworth Castle
oh my aching knees! but Oh! it was so worth it.
The blanket had found exactly the right place to be photographed
and because it went so beautifully with the colours there, it has been re-named the Worbarrow Bay Blanket.
and came up with some novel ideas of their own …
“we are a rock”
“it would look good on this rock over here Granny”
and then back to hunting for sea glass
our haul after about an hour and a half
tiny pieces of treasure.
We walked 3.8 miles bringing the total number of miles walked by Little Miss M and me to 65 of our 500 mile target.
More details of the colour order and the edging of the Worbarrow Bay Blanket to follow in a future post.
