Finished and partly done...

Contrary to the impression given in recent posts, some knitting has been going on... enhanced by having had a foul cold all week and no inclination to do things other than knit and sleep...



First a couple of squares for Grandmother Purl in cottons; patterns taken from Jan's 200 Knitted Blocks book and sized up for 8" squares. These were mailed off yesterday.

The Gryffindor scarf is also finished. It was a breathtakingly boring bit of knitting, but it's done and looks good... Here it is with the present I have yet to deliver to Baby M...


Here's a closer pic of the fringe, because there's an absurd amount of it...


And finally, the back of St Brigid is done! I've been working on this for about a year, but using 5 charts simultaneously doesn't make for portable knitting... However, the St Brigid KAL group picked up again at the beginning of the month, and I bought an Addi needle the right size... Two photos of this one - the first shows the colour but flattens the cables, the second has nice poppy cables but no idea of the colour... this is Jamieson's Soft Shetland in colour Pagan which was a special offer last year...

Feeling almost human again today, and am off to Stash with Jan... Am taking Icarus to start on the train...

I'm still laughing about your making a pagan St Brigid. Hope you had an excellent time at Stash! Trust the cold is finally getting better.

Knitting and sleeping! I'm currently trying to squeeze both of those in where I can. Would help if I could knit in my sleep ...

Re Tues 10th - the parental units will be visiting that day. I'm wondering if I'll ever get to see you again! Maybe we could think about an evening at ours sometime? I can have a glass or two of wine now ... *grin*

Hi Liz,
Love St Brigid. Still have not started mine yet. I've got some Shetland soft by Jamiesons too in think. Are you going to Ally Pally this year. Would love to talk to you about your eperiences so far.

Hi Johanne: don't have your e-mail; I'm at the Knit and Relax stand at AP on Saturday morning, so if you're about it would be lovely to meet you...
