It's really worrying admitting one's music tastes. I am quite an 80's girl especially the mid 80's. Big hair (dodgy perm), big shirts, really bad taste fashion..... Ugh (shuddering!!!!)Anyway, enough reminiscing.
I have also finished one item of knitting!!! I have so many WIPs which need a heck of a lot of focus which I just can't seem to find. Anyway, here's Spherey from Jess Hutch's book. I made him for some friends who are expecting their first baby and I''ll be seeing them this weekend. Where you might ask? IN NEW YORK!!!!! Yup, Kate and I are off to NYC for a weekend of yarn shopping and shopping and eating. We've shortlisted 6 yarn stores in our "must visit" list. So if anyone needs anything (yarn , etc from NYC) let drop me a note and I'm sure I'll be happy to shop for you too.
Pattern - Spherey from Jess Hutch's booklet
Yarn - GGH Samoa (very like Rowan's All Season Cotton)
I have also managed to start something else in the last 2 nights. I've been hankering to start the Mitre Square blanket from Mason Dixon Knitting So while hubby is away in Hong Kong for business for 10 days, I dragged out 30 odd balls of GGH Samoa and Rowan ASC and cast on. 2 nights and 3 squares later, I am hooked. I love deciding colour choices and seeing how it's turning out. Love it. Love it. (I know, I know, it might just end up on the BIG WIP pile, we'll see. Focus!)
