I have made steady progess on the Nouveau shawl. I hope to be done soon. I have made 28 squares and only have 4 more to go. The shaw is a nice size, but I really should have used a mohair yarn. It's not as warm as I had hoped it would be. I am SO looking forward to getting the mohair yarn that Tam has bought on my behalf. I want to make this shawl again, in mohair this time, because it's so pretty.
I have cast on and knited about 3 inches of the Laurel Hill jumper
, but I don't have time to continue at this point. I'd like to get the shawl completed first.
Laurel Hill (from Jo Sharp's Book 1)
Also have to get my act together and post off those BASIS squares for Laurie. I feel so guilty... I will have to get it done next week. Just don't have time this week. I have an assignment due on Monday and I have only just started to do the required reading. Get this.. the topic is yarn related! I need to write a paper on how culture and reference groups affects a yarn buyer's purchasing behaviour.
Oh, and I have also put up some pictures from B1 and B2's wedding - here
Over the weekend, Chris designed my website
. Well, it's probably more his than mine since he did all the work designing it. I think it's fab, dont you? Ok, I must admit, the content person (er.. that's me) was lazy and there's not much there (YET!)
Dad is coming this weekend. I have such a busy weekend ahead. We're going to Chiris' parents' for a barbeque lunch as it is Yenni's birthday (she is Chris' brother's gf, soon to be wife). At night we're going over to Sharlyn's for another barbeque. I am making vegetable and chicken skewers for both parties. Also making potato bake for lunch and dessert for dinner. I am looking forward to the barbeque at Sharlyn's. I haven't seen them for so long!
Probably not updating the blog till after the weekend. I'll have to get off my bottom and start writing that paper about yarn buyers' behaviour.
