We discovered new species of Jellyfish while on Holiday in Egypt last week!
Did you know?
Jellyfish are very simple animals. They’re more water than anything; a typical jellyfish is 94-98% water. They also lack basic sensory organs and even a brain.
Jellyfish contract their fluid bodies to move, but are not very efficient swimmers, which is why they end up washed up on the beach.
They are older than sharks and dinosaurs, jellyfish have lived on earth for over 650 million years!
There are over 1,500 species of jellyfish in a myriad! (Well 1,5001 if you include ours 😉 )
A Knitter or Crocheter For All Seasons? – APRIL 26
Using the FO Friday label on the side of my blog, I just had look at some of my knitted and crochet projects from last year, and I have put together a little collection of pictures by colour, so please excuse the messy non-matching borders.
From this process, I have learnt two things! I hardly have any pink featured in my projects, but I use it A LOT when dyeing yarn and I don’t have any “summer” knits, in the summer months last year I was mainly crocheting toys or sewing dresses from vintage pillow cases and fabric scraps, and restoring furniture.
Looking at the pictures I would say Autumn/winter as a season and colours-wise is my favorite, to Knit because I wear a lot of mustard, browns rusty reds and burnt oranges.
This week I have learnt so much about myself! Because I would have said I was a knitter for all seasons! But clearly I am not lol, I would have also have thought that how I use colour would have changed with the seasons, but from looking at these pictures, I just use colours that take my fancy at any given time. 😀
This year I am going to add a “summer” knit to my list of goals!
