My kitchen is covered in popcorn. The bath has confetti in it. Why? My flatmate is putting on a play. Go see if you are in London with nothing else to do this evening. She knits too! But not on stage. Yet.
Although, she is a bad knitter. She told me they only stretchy bind-off option was 1x1rib on huge needles. She lies. I plan to spend some time this afternoon learning some - it may help the secret Bakerloo Magknits project.
I had a very exciting package this week! From Veronique. Two skeins of wool, one a deep turquoise, the other a rich brown (pictured). She read in my blog that I was thinking of making myself an exchequered - she's right those colours are great together. I plan to cast on as soon as I've got the next bit of "promised knitting" over and done with (socks for birthdays, and my mum wants me to do a baby blanket for my cousin Rosalind). It was a lovely gift and cheered me up no end.
Oh and I caved. I ordered the Happy Hooker. Said flatmate and I both want to get better at crochet. I've been really inspired by some samples of crochet scarves Kerrie has been showing off - she says they'll be up on the hipknits site soon.
