If you can figure out which day of the week it is then you are a better blog reader than I… I think it is Tuesday, so if this is Tuesday it must be be that I am the King ofÂ the Belgians… no, wait, this must be Belgium… or no, I know… it’s Show and Tell Tuesday!
Hang on a minute and I’ll have a rummage…
Here we are – 2 balls of Yo-Yo!I bought this for the weaving project that I planned to do over Christmas. Ah well.
(I still need to repair the cat-damaged scarf and complete it before I warp up with this.)
Today has been busy: the Sanday Spinners site is now updated. Sadly we had to increase prices – the VAT rate went up today. We don’t charge it, but we have to pay it and therefore pass on that cost to us. Also, Ashford price increases have filtered through. I added the new niddy noddies, nostepinnes, and buttons and also the long-promised Pamuya pattern recommendation. All this and a blog post.
I watched half of Dances With Wolves. Still need to watch the second half before I can reveal how many repeats I have done on the edging of the Bridgewater. In the meantime, I have completed the first of the new pair of “ferry socks” (looking great) and have now picked up my Mingus socks, which have been hibernating since 2008 (!) I had a small problem when I unearthed them – only 4 of the set of 5 needles were present. This is a sock pattern that benefits from a set of five rather than four, so I have stolen the circular needle from the finished ferry sock. The second sock will have to wait. I am quite aggrieved about the missing needle as it is one of my treasured short Brittany Birch sock needles. Happily, at some point during the Mingus’s hibernation period, I have happily fully converted into a Magic Loop sock knitter, so all is not lost.
Anybody want a short set of short sock needles?
It seems to me that, had I been so rash as to make a NY Resolution to clear my UFOs, I’d be able to report pretty good progress towards my goals. Here we are – four whole days into January and I still have not cast on a new project.
Go on. Act impressed.
