i heart knitting
Friday, April 21, 2006
Well, have I been knitting?! However, there is nothing to show . . . as yet. I began my socks, which will be beautiful if when I finish them. BUT I found out on Wednesday night that I am off to Melbourne NEXT WEEK for work, and I really want to wear the wrappy vest, so I knitted, and knitted and knitted and I swear this thing could keep 4 kabillion orphaned wombats cosy (it is freakin huge), and yet it is still not finished. It is huge. I think I now have about 100 rows left, so I have left it for tonight knowing that I will finish before Thursday morning, when I am planning on looking chic, put together and completely crafty, and being able to drop into conversation that yes, I did knit this fabulous wrap that I am wearing. Ha! As if anyone could care less. But at least I will know.

Purl has blogged, check her out. She has a way with words that child, I am hoping she continues on her quest to become some kind of travelling aide worker with a regular spot in Girlfriend magazine. At least that is the plan at the moment! It's nice to have her back after she has been travelling with Poppy.

Mother arrived today to show me her new pattern book, which just happened to be the Cleckheaton Studio Mohair book I bought ages ago and made the Stripey Horror from. Perhaps her much slimmer physique will suit the patterns better. Perhaps she will have more sense than to wrap herself in fluffy stripes?

PS Thank goodness for the hiatus in rain. It allowed me to go walking for the third time this week. I may be morphing into someone who exercises, thanks to a much younger and much more exercise enthusiastic friend. Bah!
Did miss you not being there Tuesday. Looking forward to meeting you.

BTW..you might want to go look over on my blog..I think you will like what you see in one of the posts! lol
