What else! I have manged some knitting. I have finished the first of the Estonian mitts. I only abandoned the pattern on the thumb. As the kids at school say 'it was doin my head in'! Does the brown thumb look OK? I have really enjoyed knitting this & managed (most of the time) to have one colour working 'English' & one 'continental'- although the colours swapped quiet often. I also found a 'Victorian Lace Today' group on Ravelry & that has inspired a scarf sized 'Melon'! The yarn is an Opal Sock yarn 'cos I loved the ice cream colours & the stripe! Its an easy pattern to knit compared to the contact lens popping item pictured above on its size 2mm cocktail sticks. Melons grows on 5mm bamboo circular needles! It was a bit of a b****** to photo tonight but I guess that you will get the idea!
I was also received an award this week, which really did make me smile. It was this:
Awarded to me by Yarn Spinner
Thank you M'am! The instruction was to then award this button to ten other bloggers who 'make my day'. I am not sure that I regularly read ten blogs (I have to keep a tight hold on my web habits!) but I can easily come up with five so far. My awards go to:
I would definitely award one to Yarn Spinner but she already has one!
