More Muir, More answers

Muir continues at a pace.
I'm really getting into this pattern now. This is how it looks pinned out after just over 7 repeats and 1 skein of Posh Yarn Eva 2ply on 4mm needlesMuir - 7 repeats 23rd June 2008

And all scrunched up (but with better contrast)
Muir - 7 repeats 23rd June 2008
I decided not to wind the other skein of Eva last night before bed, I thought I would have enough yarn to keep me going on another trip to London today, but I ran out 2 rows into the journey back. Usually I take too much knitting, this time I had nothing else with me! Tut. I won't be doing that again. At least I had my Harry Potter audio book to keep me amused. Aren't libraries great?

Now for the answers to this weeks questions:
UK Swap Week 2: Which three guests (alive or not) would you invite to a dinner party and why?
I've really enjoyed reading other people's answers to this one, which makes it even harder to think of my own answers. I think Stephen Fry would be there, he is kind of in my consiousness at the moment (as he reads the Harry Potter books which I've been listening to). He is funny and intelligent but maybe a little too shy... but I reckon in a small group he's be great.
I'm tempted to put a knitter in there, maybe the Yarn Harlot as she is very witty and has great observational humour. Lastly I think I would pick someone to make us yummy food, maybe Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall. I like his philosphy on life, and he cooks yummy things.
Secret Pal 12 Week 2:
As a kid, what did you look forward to most about summer vacation/break/holiday?
As a child we used to have a static caravan on a small campsite in Wales, near Newquay. We used to go there for a couple of weeks most school holidays. I had a friend called Sue and I used to really look forward to seeing her. We drifted apart when I went to Uni, but have recently got back in touch (thanks to Facebook!) I remember being let out to play early in the morning and going on adventures on our bikes. There was a tree we had a swing from, days at the beach, even an adventure park of sorts (called Oakwood). Happy times.

Your Muir looks great! I've been working on one on and off since September last year. For some reason I haven't fallen in love with the knitting part of it. I love the product and I love the yarn, but there's somehting about making it...

I get inspired to finish mine though seeing other beautiful Muirs!
