Two And A Half Out Of Three
Yes the socks that were orders are nearly finished, working on the last Opal one now. The Opal yarn is in their Dreamcatcher range, which is bright but I think I prefer the fair isle look better, but the person who these are for is a pink girl so I think she will like them. I have promised to have them finished by Sunday so the pressure is on. The brown pair are slightly shorter as I was running out of the yarn, I have already knitted a pair using this yarn which is Rowan Tweed DK and they sold at the market. They make an ideal boot/hiking sock as they are quite thick, I do hope that the new owners like them.
The weather is definately getting cold, damp and miserable, good old Tassie weather. What better way to spend a day than sitting by the fire knitting, it brings back childhood memories of my mum and I sitting by the fire knitting together, I lived in Campbell Town then which, is even colder than Launceston.
Today was Stitch n Bitch and as always a great time was had by all, I look forward to our get togethers. A great afternoon is spent knitting, chatting and eating yummy food. We even had a couple of people come in and ask about our knitting group, so maybe we will see a couple of new faces next time. Our meeting room is located next to City Mission, a local op shop and a few went to check out if there were any bargains and the LOVELY CINDY came back with a delightful book of baby knits for me, thankyou I love it.
You may or may not notice that I have added one of those web referrer thingys in the sidebar, I have seen them and thought how cool it was that you can actually see where some of your visitors come from and at the same time you can link back to them, how cool is that. Oh yes I must get out a bit more, I think!!!
