Well ain't that just the way with blogging, I've had a horribly stressful couple of months, details of which I won't go into here because this is supposed to be fun.
So the blog has been neglected yet again and when I come back to it, I can't think what to put first! Should I start with the oldest F.O's or the most recent and work back?
Summer Secret Santa exchange from the Crafty Threads'N'Yarns forum was a real treat,
The lovely Slowasasnail sent me some Kid Silk Spray and beads to go with and a pattern for a scarf using said yarn and beads and some choccy for me and a giant Bonio to keep Foster quiet whilst I knit (it lasted long enough for me to take the ball band off anyway!)
The scarf is now finished and packed away as a Christmas present for someone so I've started getting some of that out of the way too.
So, close up............................ and the whole thing. The pattern is a kind of feather an
3 rows of beads lengthways every 4 rows-nice to knit and lovely effects from the yarn.
Currently working on a secret project for a friend in some rather scrummy laceweight, finished and sewn up a jacket in Cotton Glace but need buttons, and a disaster with a cardi from yarn which has been in the stash for a long time, I'm 6 metres short and no way of buying anymore so I will have to take some from the cuffs and re-do the bottoms of the sleeves-fortunately it's a top down pattern-it's in the naughty corner for now but will re-appear soon I hope, when my stress levels go down a bit.
