Hello.... hello... anyone there??

Hello world. I am here. Just being crap. I know of people who manage to blog everyday, with wonderful interesting posts. I know of people with loads of small children who have full time jobs (apart from being a mum, that is), knit and blog (again with wonderful posts!) Me - I have no excuse, actually maybe I just spend too much time surfing the net, checking out Ravelry and Facebook and making loads of bids on ebay. Anyway, mustn't beat myself up about this.

On the knitting front, I have been knitting and finishing some projects. (Shock! Horror! Will wonders never cease!) I started and finished Beau from Rowan's Big just got Bigger booklet. I resized it for a much smaller model. I used up some old Rowan Biggy Print which I recycled from a very failed project. In fact, I made 2. One was for friends daughter, who just turned 8. And, one was for Keira. I think she likes it. this isn't much of an achievement when you realise it was knitted on 20mm needles. It took probably just over an hour each.
I have also been busy making a "star" costume for Aidan for his school Christmas play. I have finished it but I forgot to take a photo of the finished product. I'm hoping it won't look too shabby!

I can't believe it's Dec 1 already. The Christmas songs and carols are driving me crazy! Where has this year gone? Blink and it'll be 2008.

That star costume is so cute! Can't wait to see it on your little cutie when it's all done. And Keira looks like a doll in her new Beau. Yay for quick knits!

You are an amazing woman. NO apologies between us needed. I try not to compare, because I'd fall WAY short. I love my knitting and that's what counts. I spend time reading blogs too and that is part of this neat community knitters have created. It is part of the creative process for me. I LOVE BEAU. So cute, great colors. Keep the kids all healthy for the Holidays!
