Looking forward to a three day weekend thanks to the Queen. I have a few projects that I hope to get stuck into and the girls are desperate for a trip to Spotlight to pick up some new cheap yarn. There are only so many dollars in the pay packet and some of them annoyingly have to go towards really boring stuff like food and power.I would love to have a combined yarn and book store. It would be my idea of heaven, with a pet shop next door, and a great cafe the other side. That would make work so much fun.
What sort of shop would you like to run?
On the Knitting Front there's been progress of sorts, but maybe not in the right direction. I actually frogged the sock. it was the only thing to do. Now it can't cry and make me feel bad anymore.
I have been busy with Ophelia and have chosen to use my bamboo and cotton blend in a sort of greyish green. It feels divine and I am so impatient to get it finished that I have rather abandoned the others, but they aren't complaining yet. I did pick up my pink Peplum cardy to finsh the front but only did a couple of rows before being lured back to Ophelia. It's a while since I've felt this complusion to complete a piece. It is very pretty though.
I have started on sleeves for a jumper for Daisy, my own design, not very adventurous just plain with inset sleeves she keeps nagging me to pick it up and do so I think it might be finished before I go back to work on Tuesday.
I bought a knitting magazine knit 1 with some very trendy designs all in eco yarns. I since discovered that it's aimed at 18 to 35 year old knitters which makes sense. So many projects not enough time, but I guess the dreaming is all part of the game too.
These three were drooled over so much by the girls that I had to whip it away before it become nothing more than a soggy rag. Perhaps while out on Monday I might find the yarn to make one of them a surprise gift.
Big thanks for three day weekends. They are the best.
