i'm still standin'
Hey there, it has been almost a week since my last blog, and yes I have been knitting. I have two little secrets on the go at the moment, one for MIL who will never read the blog and another for Mother who probably will, so I can't tell you what's going on. Also, of course, I have done absolutely no knitting on Manly. I promise SS I will finish this before the end of the month! No more new projects after these until it is done!
I have been trawling ebay for yarn and patterns, and have my eye on a couple of things, so I will let you know if I win. I have been on a self-imposed ebay detox for quite some time after spending far too much time buying and selling for a while there. We made a bit of money, but we also had a lot of time where we were spending more on postage than we were getting for our sales! I have never bought yarn though, so that could be a goer. SS wants an xbox360, so we are looking at what xbox consoles are fetching. We sold a playstation2 which was broken for far too much - we were completely honest about the faults etc, so there is no accounting for people's tastes!
I finished my socks, and they are pretty cool:
Thanks Little Purl
for taking the shot! I found it hard match the two socks, until I realised the blinking yarn was backwards. I had to rewind the second skein, and then voila, they matched. Something went slightly awry at the end however and the toes are not quite the same. Never mind. I am happy and they fit under my new boots I bought in Melbourne. I was staying on Bridge Road and I had an hour to kill, so I hopped on a tram and scoured every shoe shop until I found just what I was looking for. Flat black boots. There are none to be found in Launceston, that's for sure.
I hope to post with some FOs on Sunday, after Mother's Day gifts have been given. Perhaps even before then!
