Firstly I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and you are all managing to have a wonderful Boxing Day.
I had to show you these, this is one of the presents that my brother brought me.
Now they don’t look much but the best bit I can’t show you is that dependent on the way they are stacked depends upon what song they sing, they are very funny, and it gets better each one has a secret. They all have babies.
Apparently there are many more to collect, and am trying very hard not to get drawn in they are hysterical though.
So onto knitting news, as I said I’ve been doing a little, to start with this is my progress on my dreamweaver sock.
Not bad bit have now remembered why I prefer short row heels, but with the inclusion of a couple of extra sticthes picked up there are no holes.
The next is a bit of Crochet, I brought one of Prudence Mapstones PDF files for alternative fringes and did some experimenting, still not happy with the scale.
And finally as one of the things I ordered from Get Knitted before Christmas I decided to make my Christmas Knitting this its the Pacific Northwest Shawl, now I have tried lace knitting a few times and have got fed up with usually by the third repeat but so far I am not doing to bad.
Not that you can see from this awful photo I have finished the sea gulls and have got as far as the widest point on the fir tree, which isn’t bad considering I started it on the 23rd. The yarn I am using is some Blue Heron mercurised cotton so I can actually wear it and it is easy to work backwards to unlike something more fluffy. SO I am off to continue and see if I can finish the fir trees today, I may need some help though on the I-Cord top and the the pointy edging but I’ll worry about that when I get there.
