(sorry I am a day late: excuses to be reeled off later!)
It was such a hard task trying to decide which was the best sock, I mulled over them for a day (excuse no. 1) and in the end wrote all the names down and asked Mavis to pick one out…
So, Congratulations Jo. I do like these socks, I haven’t done any colour work in socks which will be a new challenge (as you know, I love to learn something new) I also like my pirates, although the films I haven’t seen!
If you could email me with your address Jo, I’ll get your yarn off to you asap.
A great effort from everyone though, thank you for taking the time to enter my little competition.
Also thanks for all the well wishes for J. He’s home now and slowly recovering. He’s been told he can’t cycle for at least 2 months which is killing him! (not literally I hasten to add!) (excuse no.2)
Whilst J was away I had a bit of a re-shuffle (excuse no.3). You know how you start one thing, and it leads to another, and then another…and so on. Well, the original task was to put my stash into boxes as they had been messed about a bit due to laziness. I decided I didn’t have enough room for all my craft stuff. J is always complaining that I have bits everywhere, so I suggested that we swapped offices. He
has had the “dining room” with loads of space and an empty cupboard and a huge desk.
It’s now mine…all mine!
I’m happier with this one, it’s moving with much more speed.
The pink bit is still the Debbie Bliss alpaca/silk blend. The purple yarn is Wendy Merino, which is so soft once it’s been washed.
And as if I am not busy enough (I work better under pressure anyway, so I’m not complaining) I have been asked to move my craft class from the family centre up to the community school…woohoo…and I start next week! (and I’ll get paid…YAY!)
I’m really looking forward to that.
For the local folks who read this: Look out for the flyers for a “CanDo Promo” thing we have going at St John’s Church on Thursday ( 13th Sept) morning 9am – 12pm
I’m going to do a bit of machine knitting and scrapbooking this time and there will be few stalls going on with Needles and Pins and Yo-Yo Yarns and the Thursday Social Club. Refreshments, raffles and bargain stalls and a peek into the future of Community Activities Network Do!
Be there…please. 🙂
