I had some fab comments to my last post, how about using a tea pot as a yarn holder?! Sounds hilarious but it's brilliant :D
My pretty panniers arrived but alas... They really were a case of style over substance :( Obviously intended to stay on your bike (which might be ok if you live in a lovely village and not Manchester) and no handles / strap to carry off the bike. They were also so long my heels kicked them every time I pedalled! Needless to say I had to return them :( I got a bargain pair of black bags (exactly what I didn't want!) but they're much easier to fit and have a very good handle system - so ends le pannier saga :)
I've been furiously crocheting while watching the Olympics and I've finished round three! I'm actually a little further on than that now but I thought I'd spread out my progress :)
Round three might well be my favourite...
Aside from panniers and crocheting we visited J's parents allotment and I spotted these beautiful flowers - no idea what they are but the colours were stunning!
The weird mix of rain / sun / rain / sun has done wonders for my plants too. I'll have to get some new photos of them soon. Right, back to watching the swimming finals now!
