Well of course today isn't all about me.... 12th December is also National Christmas Jumper Day. Unfortunately I don't actually have a cheesy Christmassy jumper so will be wearing my stripy sweater instead - it's got a big roomy pocket. Anyway I was inspired to 'knit' a new Facebook Cover Image using my ever trusty Serif DrawPlus X5. Cosy huh? Have a great day... stay warm folks, it's chilly out today :D xxx
I'm having this week off work as holiday. I'm not going away anywhere as I was planning on having a good sort out of things at home. Instead I found a scarf which I had started knitting a few years ago and had put aside unfinished, well I picked it up again and while watching a couple of films managed to get it finished... it's one of those soft fluffy yarns (like frayed ribbon) in a jewel bright pink and purple blend. It took just 4 x 50g, balls, cast on 35 in plain knitting, and I used large 9mm knitting needles so it has a light lacy feel.
I found another 4 balls in a blue and green blend so gonna knit that up today!
I also found up a ball of I-cording... I was planning to re-knit that up as a scarf (wow that would be seriously chunky) but I've decided instead to make some massive knitting needles from dowling and knit up a blanket!! That may take me some time.
I'm just a country girl from Suffolk living with my beautiful daughter and 4 cats: EAP The Demonic Moggy, 'El Bandito' and 'Her Royal Highness Princess Pickle-Lily Fuzzy Britches' (yes that is her actual name), and 'The Fabulous Liz Taylor' (actually a tom cat... named after the Denis O'Hare character in American Horror Story Hotel).
