Ok the usual, been busy, been not here etc etc
what have I been up to hey mmmm
Been on a few rides on the bike, (need to finish that bloody pink scarf for that too, brrrrr), been here maybe bout 3 days in the past 14. So not much is really happening around here. I did sort out my little corner I used to shove my stuff on and now it looks more pleasant to look at, whipped out some jars to store my needles and generally tidied up the books and mags. This is the first thing thats seen from the doorway of my study so I was always conscience of the way it was.
Done some knitting while at the spunks, not as much as I could have or would have, had I not cut my thumb on a potato peeler and bloody hell it was killing for a few days hey, too red and angry to knit with. Bit of shock for him that I wasnt knititng I think, but he made me cuppas and we ate some chocolate and he tended to my sore with elastoplast so all is good, and yesterday I managed a few rows. And to help move ova 400 pavers we managed to get for free.
Progress on Brins cardi has gone slow for me. I have done the back and 1 & 3/4 sleeves. (I like to do these first or second as not to leave em till sleeve island where I can ignore em)
While browsing on my old puter stuff the other day I found these I will share with ya. This was a jumper I did for Brins ooooo bout 4 years ago. Made with cleckheaton country and just a jumper I designed liked and made, she loved it and this year will be her first year she wont wear it *sob*. Time to pass it on
And remember the very first issue of Creative Knitting we all gushed over. Everyone was making these shawls using their scraps, this is mine.... I put the buttons on it and since then have hated them, this year they come off. Yes I still use mine. Its warm and cosy. I have some feathers in there, but most of it was made with wool, mohair, alpaca, and angora. I didnt bring this out last winter unless I was home alone. I was scared that it would scare off the spunk But hes so got used to what I knit and wear now. This past weekend has been a little chilly and I could have done with it, so it comes out of hiding to be shown and admired. (or hated if you want)
This Pic is of me. Brins took it the other week on her camera. Poor kid just hasnt got the hang of pic taking yet, but shes improving. Think it would have been a great pic without the suns ray all over it, but it adds mystery I say. U can see me but ya cant hahaha. Id just had my hair cut a few days before and since then its grown back the inch I lost and another.
Ok I need to go and find some clothes, since we aint home much most of my wardrobe lives in my car and other places. I have a heap of washing from the weekend and the spunk has the day off so I dont wanna waste it doing the mundane. Hes off visiting his mates this morning so I wanna get done before he gets home.
Enjoy ur day and remember 2219 739067 cleckheaton merino light blue *evil laff*
