I’m feeling guilty about not ‘blogging.. See I’m far too busy living life to talk about it all!
Throat is still sore, but I think I’m over the worse now. I have made the decision though, that going out Saturday night has to be a short one, otherwise, I won’t make my Brunch appointment for 12:30 on Sunday!
Not sure when I’m going to get to sit down at home either this weekend, I’ve got my plate full again, I’m trying to fit too much into my downtime.
I have finished my neck shrug though! I took it to NWk2tog, and Jane convinced me that picking up a row off of the “dead” end of the piece, and then knitting a few more rows from it and then making a 3 needle cast off was the way to play.
So, I did that, and it worked a treat!
Well, almost, I dropped a couple of stitches off of the front needle withouth realising I hadn’t gone through them, and only spotted it at the end! A pain, and so shows that I’d never done a 3-needle before, but nothing that a crochet hook and some weaving in couldn’t fix!
I also made a finger-braid for the pull cord of Handbag, (Rather than the twisted cord M&S recommend…) so it really is just a case of weaving in its ends and making a lining up for it at some point in the near. I *might* put a couple of tassles on the corners, as there is a little yarn left over, but not enough to be useful!
I’ve also ordered some 9mm DPNs to do a “French Market Bag” from Knitty. Lixie made one, and although she made it huge, in a very nice Debbie Bliss, the wool felted like a maniac, and she has ended up with a small handbag! It looks really sweet though. Hope mine turns out half as nice!
I’ve also cast on and first row’d for my sock! So, that WIP can get a new pic and a 1% in its bar, when I get back to my PC!
In fact, I’ve got lots of new pics I need to take… Can someone find me a time twister please? You know, like Hermionie has in Prisoner of Askabhan?
