Hi everyone

Feelin quite chilled. Knitting, posting and watchin Midsomer Murders at mo. Went to York for the weekend, found a great woolshop, hadnt got the time to browse at leisure, decided to go back the following day and they were closed. Temporarily gutted I was!!!! They are on the net, but it gives me the perfect excus
e for another weekend in York soon!! (Sheepish in The Shambles).

Everytime I go away I look for a wool shop and have done for years, drives my kids scatty.

Current projects are:
  • knittin a raspberry tea cosy from Laughing Hens, actually finished the knittin bit today only needs making up. It is one funky way to have a cuppa, have previously knit the strawberry one for a gift. They are really sweet!

  • At the weekend I started to knit a pair of socks with yarn from Fibrespates, lovely stuff very tactile, on a circular needle of course... this is still a work in progress, thought it would be boring but its not and knits up surprisingly quickly.

  • designin one of my own patterns will not comment on this until it is finished, and believe me it has to be just right.

  • Oh and another one I nearly forgot, I am crochetin an open cream coloured cardigan for a gift!
Four things on the go at once is about right for me, I have to mood craft, dont like being forced to finish one thing at once, takes all the joy out of it for me!!

Have also read a book this week, one of my old favourites Sidney Sheldon's, The Other Side of Midnight, read it years ago and its still not lost its magic for me.

Tomorrow my heroes, St Helens Rugby League are playing the final at Wembley, its very unlikely that I
will get any crafting done during the match, dont want to miss a thing. Catch u
all soon.

Happy knitting,
Oh and one last thing .....
