Hurray! Hurray! I've won a prize! Kathy at Irisheyes Knitting was hosting a postcard competition and I sent her a few postacrds before Zoe arrived. My name was pulled
out of the hat and look at what she sent me. Socks that Rock in Ruby and a Gone with the Wind mug. I am currently looking for the perfect pattern for such a lovely colourway.
This brings me on to my next distraction - Ravelry. I've got my invitation and I've logged on and I'm completely distracted. it's great to look through everyone's stash and projects. I'm currently queueing up loads of projects which I have no time to make. There are loads of sock patterns which I haven't seen and I'm tempted to cast on. I'm also a bit worried about fully disclosing the size of my stash. Uggh!
My aim for October is to finish a few WIPs which have been languishing around for some time. As the weather is turning colder, I'm very motivated to finish my Flicca coat in Rowan Polar. I've actually finished the back, 2 fronts and 1 sleeve. So hopefully that won't take too long. I also have the Rowan Denim jacket to finish for Aidan. The back and fronts have been completed and seamed, both sleeves are also finished. Unfortunately, the pieces didn't shrink 20% after the first wash, so the sleeves aren't fitting into the armh0les. A quick fix is required (I just haven't had the concentration!) There's also the Mitred Square blanket which needs another 20 squares and a hell of a lot of sewing up. This is all I'm going to disclose at the moment! The trouble is I'm being distracted by the 3 little monkeys!
