Of beads, and Trees and Pretty Baubles

You know when you have a really great idea in your head for a knitted project, and then you spend AGES on it and it doesn’t work out too well?  That's what my green jacket thing is doing to me right now.

GAAA Wordless Wednesday

You know when they make those amazing programs but only show half the season and then have a really big break?  Well GAAA Wordless Wednesday is doing that.  You see, I’m really lazy and haven’t finished the grafting on two of the squares, neither have I designed and knit the 25th OR Started on the edging.  I’m guessing it’s going to be well beyond Christmas until I get back to it since I’ve got lots of other things on the go too.  If you’ll all bare with me, one day you might see the finished article!

Very Late Birthday Post

It was my birthday on Tuesday!  I thoroughly enjoyed myself, got lots of chocolate and flowers and cards, and was properly spoilt.

This square is the prize winner of the competition, and not for those that dislike sewing!  The sweater is sewn to a plain background in three pieces.  For more information, visit my Great American Aran Afghan Squidoo Page

Repairing My Ten Stitch Blanket

Remember ages ago I knit a ten stitch blanket? I used 500g of Sirdar Denim Tweed I’d bought on sale and didn’t like when knit up, but poppy adopted it even when it was washcloth sized and so it became a dog blanket.  Cut to the end of April and poppy gave birth on it!   Five chewing puppies later and it ended up with this big hole!
