:: Good Morning All::
How are you all doing today? You have been making such lovely posts of late and I have enjoyed reading them so much. So much that I have such a bad case of Startits. I used be a such a good girl! Only ever started one project at a time but I have been lured in by yarny goodness and lots of ideas!!!!!! I blame you all!! You all make such lovely things!!
So what's on the needles at the moment?
A very pretty soft green, cotton version of the Baby Bunting Cardi which I will show use when it's done. I am still plodding on with the The Perfect Cardi but I intend to take this away as my holibobs project. I am ashamed to say I could not resist my sock yarn from swap parcel any longer. It was calling to me! Winking at me from the corner of my eye all the time. You know the type? That "Go on! You know you want to." look. "Cast me on. Come on. You can't resist me forever!" Temptation was too much and I gave in on Saturday. Oh they are LUSH. I think there name has to be My Multi Coloured Swap Socks. If you are a born in the UK and a child of the 1970's like myself you will get that title right away but for the rest of you Multi Coloured Swap Shop was a children's TV programme for happy, tasteless years of fashion disastrous 20years.
And here they are. Isn't that yarn glorious?
I went to my LYS to say Happy Birthday to Lucy which was too tempting again and I added to my stash again.
Isn't this glorious too? I think it may become a shawl but I have seen so many lovely Ravelry project it would be great for I just can't make my mind up. Any ideas??
This sweet yarn is going to be another baby item. I have a couple in mind but haven't settled on which.
I told you I have startitis!!!!! I want to make more things.
I would need to be an octopus to get through the ideas I have at the moment.
I stumbled across a lovely new blog recently. I can't even remember how. It's the lovely Vic Loves To Knit. Vic had a giveaway on and it was the new magazine that I have heard about so much (but couldn't get hold of a copy of)
To my utter astonishment I won! I sent Vic my details and a lovely little parcel of happiness arrived all beautifully wrapped.
That flower is going to be sewn onto a brooch back today so I can wear it on my jackets and cardigans.
What a treat! It's lovely and full of good ideas and a big help with sourcing some of materials used in crafts. So a big big thank you to Victoria I am so pleased.
I am off now to go to the pub for lunch with Mr TB (our version of the O'Bama's date night) Then off to get a haircut.
Have a great week everyone.
