I was hoping to have an FO for you but a strange feeling came over me, I had this urge to catalogue my stash….
It’s OK, I’m over it now! I don’t have a huge stash, but it did take up all my knitting time over 2 days.
Alexis isn’t far off now, 1/2 a sleeve and the hood. I’m dying to see it on Mavis.
Dylan bought me this for my birthday. This was the Dr (Peter Davidson) I watched as a child. J and I laughed our heads off! Dr Who is well known for it’s cheap set and effects, but to see the difference between now and then…fantastic!
I also had these. I’d seen Wild Swans in Tesco and uhmmed and ahhed over it for a while as it had been recommended to me, I’m looking forward to reading it but I am enjoying Hangover Square too much to just put it down.
I help friends out in their pub from time to time, it gets me out of the house and them out of sticky situations (like, no staff turning up) so to say thank you they bought me these chef’s clogs…I love ’em!
I also bought myself a few knitty books from Amazon, I’ve not had them yet (did they not know it was my birthday!?).
The very bestest treat was this…a UK site! Selling unusual (for me anyway) yarns. And because Nora keeps taunting me with her stainless steel silkyness…I just had to buy this.
I got the wool version because it has a better colour range (LOL). I really want some of that Shosenshi…I’ll have to wait for Santa I think.
To add to my great gifts, a wonderful cake made by J and decorated by Jas and Dyl.
**AND a booking for an arts and crafts session. For the benefit of local people who read my blog, it will take place on the
23rd of August from 11am to 2.30pm in the Carousel Family Centre in Monkton.
I’m not going to say exactly what we shall be up too, but there will be a bit of jewelry making for kids of all ages..and some bubbles!**
