Projects finished

I have finished some projects that I had half done last weekend,(just so I could well have a clear out so to speak)so I had some amigurumi's cats and hats oh and an elephant,(which I'm most proud because it is my own pattern) I also came across in a bag a project finished just the sewing up and stuffing and I haven't a clue what it is, all I know is, it is an amigurumi of some sort, and because I don't know what it is I don't know what pattern to look for, there are 8 pieces ah I will find out what it is eventually lol...

Anyway my daughter saw the cats in my Picasa photo album and she wants them, and then came the " mam can you also make me a penguin/pig/turtle, I think they are soooo cute" also some sock's, and a pair for bed to keep my footie's warm"
I ask ya, she must think I do nothing all day but knit, well she is half right, after housework is done, that's when I can do some and that would be a good day, if my back and leg's let me,because it is very hard to do some housework while trying to hold on to walking sticks, I then can relax and do some knitting/crocheting, all depends on my mood...

Getting on great with the circular needles, and knitting 2 socks at same time is great!!! no more sss (second sock syndrome) yippee

My first pair of socks knitted on 2 circular needles 2 at the same time..and this is next pair started

Hats knitted on circular needles, a ribbed one and cabled one ,and the model is my son lol ...

New blog page

It was time for a change, and I found this blog skin and decided to add it to my blog,but first I had to save the first blog, just in case, read all the instruction's and crossed all finger's and toe's and changed it, and it was scary doing it, in case I lost everything, but I think it looks ok.

Hubby's socks

My first pair of socks, knitted on circular needles, and I found knitting them great compared to dpn, they knitted up fairly quickly too it seemed, so now thats something new I have learned to do, My other half said they are great for his work boots, and very comfy and that he want's some more, so it looks like Iam going to have to learn how to do the 2 at the same time then, oh it should be fun!!!!

Birthday pressies

These are some of my Birthday pressies,I was giving money to get what I wanted myself, so here is what I got...
The book I ordered from amazon and was delivered Saturday, which was great!!!
pink wool from wool market and my friend got me the rest of wool, lemon/cream

I also got some bamboo circular needles, forgot to take photo.

Necklace from my friend and this beautiful card with removable dragonfly to hang in window, very unusual card.So I had a good birthday....

Happy Birthday!!!!

Well it's my Birthday to-day 11th, I was born on a Sunday,and I was thinking of that poem, you know the one!!! We all learned it when we were small kiddies, and it goes like this:

Mondays child is fair of face,
Tuesdays child is full of grace,
Wednesdays child is full of woe,
Thursdays child has far to go,
Fridays child is loving and giving,
Saturdays child works hard for his living,
And the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

Well I'm bonny and blithe, good and gay, that sounds pretty good to me...

I'm also a Virgo and that means:

Virgo's are one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. People think they're fussy, critical bad tempered and picky but that's only because they want everything to be perfect. This is the sign of cleanliness.

Virgo's are highly intelligent, interested in everything and everyone and happy to be busy with many jobs and hobbies. Many have some kind of specialised knowledge and most are good with their hands Virgo's make fantastic friends. If a minor crises pops up you can be sure the Virgo will have everything under control in 30 seconds.They are shy and slow to make friends but when they do accept someone, they are the loyalist, gentlest and kindest of companions. They are great company and have a wonderful sense of humour.


I haven't been to good last few day's, feeling a bit down and my back is playing up too, could it be I wonder that my ** birthday is looming, on the 11th Sept, or maybe it could be what happened 7yrs ago in the USA, the bombing of the 2 towers (9/11)terrible tragedy, and the loss of all those Innocent people... God Bless all them all

I have been knitting socks on circular needles and yes it's good, I will take pic and post them,when I have finished experimenting on the different wool etc...
