oh! you pretty things

Posted on: March 30, 2007

I really need to get a camera! My purchases arrived! The Socks that Rock arrived today, and I am dying to take a picture of it and show off! My books are here too, I have had a very quick flick through and think they are quite fabulous. What does it say about me that I don’t want to make a ball of yarn until I have photographed the skeins? Deary me! I may need to borrow someone’s camera this weekend.

I have also tried to sign up for the Knitterly Letter Swap and have signed up for the Knitter’s Treat Exchange (my answers to the questionnaire are over where my SecretPal10 used to be). I hope I get to participate in both, I need some diversions here and there. What a week I have had at work. Busy busy busy. Some students want me to try and knit with steel wool, to settle an argument. They were determined that I should do it, and suggested I could wear rubber gloves so my hands didn’t hurt. They are so kind!

And now it is the weekend. By Sunday night, I will have a cardigan, as I am knitting the yoke of the Country Silk cardi at the moment. My Monkey socks are still on the needles, but I did finish the RPMs and have worn them this week. Very comfy!

Finally, take a look at this! This is possible the cutest cat ever. Apart from mine of course.
