Only 6 days to go until the big 30 on Friday! The countdown has begun. I thought you might appreciate this picture, you can see my love of stripes started at an early age! My birthday party shawl is nearly nearly finished, one half motif to go and then a good blocking. The yarn arrived for my Hogwarts Sock Kit Swap.... it is such great gryffindor colours. I'm hunting out beads to make some stitch markers from.
I have another present finished..... it will be gifted tomorrow, but I think I am fairly safe to post a picture here at this late hour: It is "Fever" in Rowan Cotton Tape (sadly discontinued) from It's a tape thing.
An obscenely short mini skirt for my friend Kerry who taught me to crochet and has amazing legs which deserve to be shown off! I have more than enough yarn left to add a few more rows if it is tooooo short. However, I'm hoping it will be perfect :0) Was a very quick crochet once I actually got the pattern. I'm not used to crochet patterns so the front was completely wrong the first time I made it. I seem to have been doing so much crochet lately it was a bit weird to be knitting socks on the train this morning! It is much more of a reddy-pink than the picture shows.
Kerry is having a party in Bristol tomorrow evening, so I am taking the chance to go down early and visit Get Knitted. I am very excited about this, even though there is no way I need to buy ANY MORE yarn... I am thinking the new Interweave Knits, maybe some more of the fab 30cm addi turbos and some clover crochet hooks. Well, I need an early birthday present (or ten)!
No more news on Terry and June. She is still sitting on the eggs, most of the time, and Terry is still bringing her food, so I am hoping all is well.
