I so often decide to knit something for someone's birthday etc, then find I'm up against a deadline, miss the deadline, and have to show people their half finished birthday pressie.
the claremont rotary fair is on again this sunday. actually, i think rotary don't organise it anymore, and it's actually the claremont lifestyle fair, but that sounds like an exhibition for reiki healers, so i'm gonna stick with tradition.
Thanks everyone for the fish parts and fin knitting (Helen). Fishy was much appreciated by the Birthday girl and now lives happily near the more slippery variety above the office tank. I have pictures but my work computer keeps thinking it's disconnected from the net if I try to upload them.
As the S'n'Bers know (cos I haven't stopped whinging about it), I'm in the middle of moving house. I've packed nearly all my clothes, shoes, bed linen etc., which I thought which I thought would be the hard bit. Nooo. The hard bit has been the stash.
um, i have New Knitting Project, but i think i'm going to be a wee bit short on some noro (hear you all mentally groan). but seriously, i need scrappy little bits. that's all. like, enough to do 40 - 50 stitches. and it must be in the scummy greyish/ brownish colours you didn't want to knit anyway so cut out of the ball (or am i the only one that does that?).
This is so addictive! The white bits are the ties holding it together. ..I used the same NZ wool from crossways. I'll be making Danica with this.
Not Neale, but something more useful
this tutorial tells you how to make it
See if you agree with me about this top
Here it is, my first dyed yarn! The original plain yarn is next to it (duh) I'm sure that didn't need explaining.
5 yarn-obsessed knitters bemoaned the lack of Knitting Camps, like they have on the US.
oh yeah, my blog. was dumb. can't write. well can write, but only crap .. nothing that's like profound or intelligent or anything...plus I was lonely... hehe.. I'd rather write on the craftyaction blog if I'm allowed to come crawling back???? hehe
