No photos sorry
Yes, I am sorry, but there are no photos. Text heavy post.
I have actually been knitting quite a lot, I have finished the heel flap without the little 3D bit for another pair of sock for myself with the Patonyle orange and pinky colourway, and I like it a whole lot more than I thought I would. I also knitted a whole huge amount of an afghan and then took it apart and reknitted it in basketweave rather than lacy pattern. I know what I have to admit to myself - although I am actually capable of doing tricky things, I prefer to knit quite basic patterns because knitting is my escape FROM tricky things.
Oh yes, after Sharon mentioned being the only knitter who had not made Panta, I had an attack of the guilts and made myself one. As did Cindy! I have always been a bit like this. Don't challenge me! I will prove you wrong!!
Manly has been shelved. I am also contemplating taking my wrap apart, as I had to go out this evening and put it on and promptly took it off again. I don't like it! I look like an EWOK!
A note to parents. Based on careful research done by moi, if you go away for two weeks and leave a sixteen year old boy home alone with his eighteen year old brother as the adult, there is bound to be a party at your house with screaming shrieking girls and breaking bottles. And a thumping thud thud thudding bass line. Just you wait neighbours, until my kids are old enough. I am saving up for the holidays. I am sure MY kids won't party in my absence - yeah right. Mwahahahaha.
