  A little bit o' knittin'
I was interested to read that the Knitting Party at Spotlight wasn't the greatest! I had my suspicions. Well, what have I been up to this week?

I finished a Jaywalker, and am yet to start the other one. I was a bit bored with it I guess, but I will attempt to start and finish by the end of the week. I also made a face washer with this pattern. I really like it - I am putting it away for Christmas. I will post a photo soonish. I think I will order some soap from Lush and bundle them together. I love Lush soap, especially the Rock Star one. Have you tried it? Yum yum! I have also started the doll for Little Miss, she loved Jill: (Credit to the poor suckers I stole the photo from. Thanks Google images).

Lucky mother is going to be the recipient of the red scarf from the previous post. I started the clapotis in brown Country Silk, and it just didn't work. I think it was a meeting of country and city - the yarn is too rustic looking. I think. Now I have six balls of Country Silk and no idea what to do with it. Anyone have any suggestions? Three pairs of silky sox? A manly scarf that will never be worn? A felted bag (can you felt silk???) HELP!

How cold is it? My goodness. I was so late for work this morning because my car was frozen after already being defrozen by SS. Does anyone have a trick for defreezing your windows without covering yourself in water? Please share!

I watched Walk the Line on the weekend and found it - bearable. I am not particularly fond of Johnny Cash, I prefer my country with a beard (yay Kenny Rogers!) and found that I had little sympathy or empathy for his character. It did make me remember a particularly bizarre phase I went through as an adolescent where I listened to a great deal of 50s rock - I used to have a whole lotta shakin going on!

Have a nice week!
Yes, it was so cold last week, the warm water I poured on my windscreen froze into a steel hard, thin pane of ice!! I have no ideas. I shall google!!! I have looked at the Lush site, but it was too late to order for a birthday for someone. I pln to order some soon. Even moreso now!!
Buy a few balls of Silk more and you can have a cardigan!!!
wet newspaper before it gets too late then lift in morning with iceon the outside of paper
Adam puts a bath towel on the window the night before...the frosting happens to that and reduces what gets on the window..

I wish I knew all those handy hints about icy windows. When I lived in Yorkshire we just used to wind the windows down and punch out the sheet of ice, but that was no good for the windscreen! We did that with a scraper cos water just re-froze straight away.
I think you could make a sleeveless something with six balls on large-ish needles,
Cheers Gillian
I think a bag might be nice..a messenger bag or something??
I hadn't seen Lush before and now I have a huge wishlist. It looks good enough to eat.
I agree with 2paw, buy sme more balls and make a cardigan!

Ms Stash assures me I have seen the Lush site before but I will have to look again. It osunds exciting.
