I have been working up to a blog entry for a couple of days now, beginning with a change of colour scheme and a tidy-up in my sidebar. Also, I have been knitting! And, I have taken pictures of the knitting. Admittedly the pictures are shocking, but I will share them anyway.
These are what were going to be toe-up Jaywalkers, but I just got sick of the pattern, so I pulled one whole sock and one quarter sock apart, and started again. They are being expertly modelled by Tiny Madam. She doesn't quite fill them out like I do, but you get the point. I made these using my Patonyle accessories book, and I quite like the pattern.
So much that I began another pair the other day with some Opal petticoat which I bought at the LYS a couple of weeks ago. I think it is really pretty. I would love to share another photo but I can not upload. Maybe another time. (Deep breaths).
mentioned, I went to the Deloraine Craft Fair on the weekend, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Mainly due to the SuperSpunk coming with me! He is a true gem! I only bought a couple of little things, but we had a lovely lunch and a relaxing stroll around the venues. I fell in love with some felted brimmed hats similar to this
, and I think this will be on the menu for next winter. I really am a hat person, but Tasmania is not a hat place. It is cold enough sometimes, but it is not the done thing
In other news, I am as usual completely exhausted. I finished an essay last weekend, so that is the Uni stuff out of the way for this year. Now I just have the normal day to day work to get through. I am crossing days off the calendar now. Well, to be honest I start crossing the days off the calendar as soon as the school holidays finish in February. But now I am crossing off in red.
The Tiny Madam turns four in two weeks, so we are getting very excited around here. Then my birtday and then Christmas! EEEK! I can feel some hard core shopping coming on.
