My latest knit was a quick one. it took less than a week to knit.  This cowl design is by Glenna C of http://crazyknittinglady.wordpress.com.

The pattern is Charlotte St. cowl and I knitted the cowl in Old Maiden Aunt yarn.

I do like quick knits.  But I also like to get my teeth into something longer as well.  I just need to decide what I am make next.  I have a couple of work things that need to be started but I also want to do something else for me.  Is it wrong to have more than one thing on the needles at a time?

I do need to give this a better block but I so wanted to put it on this morning.  My other scarves are all starting to look scruffy and need a wash and reblocking.

On Good Friday, we went to the University of Bristol Botanical Gardens with my parents.  It was absolutely freezing cold and we didn't spend long there.  They had some sculptures to find around the garden which Josh enjoyed looking for.  Unfortunately it was too cold for most of the plants and so they were covered to protect them so I think we shall have to go back again and look at the plants when it is warmer.

Easter weekend was a very quiet affair at home just us.  It was nice to have a long weekend and just relax.  We did spend quite a bit of time in the garden doing some tidying after the winter and getting things ready for when Spring does decide to eventually come and it is warm enough to plant things.
