Here is my desk today..
My finished socks (how proud am I?). I suppose I should be wearing them but I just like looking at them for now. Finished Angry Bird and Pig. Two new Pom-Pom makers. A stash of new wool which I got for 50c per 50g - BARGAIN. I haven't decided what to do with it yet but it is lovely. Nimp still waiting for his bell. And my new project, my cardi. Coming along nicely, but so far I only knit it whilst at my knitting group, so don't expect it to fly along just yet. At the other end of my table are two squares of knitting. I cut up an old PJ top of Smallest's into a long length of 2cm wide and then cast on 8 stitches and just knit 8 rows. I am planning on making these into a blanket or a cushion cover. They are really soft. I have loads of old tee-shirts, pj's of the boys and its really easy to do. Whether it will look any good once finished, I don't know, it's just another little project to pick up every now and then when I feel like it.
Talking of picking things up.....I have started on my Granny Blanket again. I started it before we came here to Canada and three times took it on the the long flight from UK to Canada and back again. It takes me about an hour and a half to do one round now (because its big, not because I've got slower!) and three quarters round the other day, I ran out of wool. I had planned to do each round in a different colour but now it is so big I can't do that. Hopefully it will still look okay.
It is covering the two Seater sofa (just to give you an idea of the size). The flash wasn't on and it's quite dark so it looks dull bit it's quite a cheery blanket.
I brightened up the loft (my side) with some lovely LLJ bunting - I love it, but I don't have that special place to put it yet so I hung it on the bannister for now.
Right I will try and get round as many of you as I can. I always have the best intentions but its not always so easy.
