Good Morning all! (Imagine sunny smile + Wave ) It’s wednesday, the weather is more spring like and the sun is trying to make an appearance.
This week began eventfully, and as my facebook followers will tell you, my DH and DS where delighted with our new arrival. They went to the electronics adoption centre and brought home a gynormous big screen Television, and like any proud parents, have been watching it constantly! Willow really enjoyed the box. Sad to say technology does nothing for me…
I have been considering (this always makes my guys nervous), looking at my numerous WIP’s I decided to collect them into one clear bag so they could stare at me and shame me into action… well that’s the plan!
The Round up list:
- Walk for Shetland by Anna Szymanowska test knitting the english Ver.
- Because of Love Beret (March carry along forum project)
- Small Lace Bag (March carry along forum project)
- Soper Creek Yarn Challenge – Top secret project!
- Abigail Vest
- Hill Walking Socks (design in test knit stage)
- Pine Forest blanket
- Immie Blanket
- Cosy Winter Shawl (design in test knit stage)
- Roarin Cloche (resisting this felted project)
- Beryl Blanket (Long term scrap project)
The jar you may ask, well at “Knittin Club” last Weds night, TB (a friend and yarnie) had a big jar and was starting a scrap fibre collection. This idea purcolated in my mind and I wondered what a year of my scraps would look like, and how much it would weigh…The Jar – A year of scraps! March 2012
Challenge: show your Jar, how full will it be a year from now?
Books: This weeks review is a knitting book! I have had this one for some time (1986). I pulled it out for a knitting lesson last week, and thought you might like it. “Knitting in Plain English” by Maggie Righetti, this is a great primer on knitting. Imagine your best knitting teacher ever, and a loving grandma helping with your knitting! I have been knitting forever, but I sometimes catch myself quoting a Righetti to my classes… Thanks Maggie for writing this book! Yup that good and amusing too :0)
