  Long time, no blog
No, I have not dropped off the side of the planet. I have been very busy in the past week, knitting and otherwise. On the knitting front, I have finished the raspberry jumper, which I really like although my seams are a mess. I think I will make some kind of embellishment to add to the joy, as it is a bit plain. I have also finished the Odessa hat, plus a beanie for the smallest child in my care, and have knitted and seamed the posterboy bag, but it is yet to be lined. Nor have I lined the pink ribbon bag.

I have also knitted a sock. Congratulations to my fellow Launcestonians who were successful in their WWSock Competition. I don't think mine would win any prizes, but my heel is fairly neatish and the toe is really good. I have done them in 8 ply, so they will be no good to go in shoes but fabulous for Tassie winters.

Photos to follow.

The Manly Sweater from Stitch n Bitch is on the go, in black which is a bit silly and difficult to knit at night, but it is looking good. I think I will put a stripe in it around the chesty area to break up the black. Oh, and also because I didn't buy enough black yarn and when I went back to Spotlight there was none of the same dyelot left. Go figure. Who knew so many people were buying black wool? While there I also bought a set of six bamboo pairs of knitting needles in a hideous tapestry case, and I am in love. They are so light and sturdy. I am sure that you can get them slightly more smooth than these, but they are fantastic none the less. I also bought two skeins of machinewash 100% wool for 99c a ball. I should have bought more, but I have no idea what to do with this as it is.

Does anyone know how I can give up a fairly well paid job and knit all day?
Sounds like you have been busy, can't wait to see some pics, especially poster boy. I am home but I still don't get near the amount of knitting time that I would like :(
