Thank you Chris!
Chris has been working hard to re-design my blog. Here it is - my blog has a new face, a much pretter face too, if you ask me! The darling man also made changes to my project progress pictures (look at the sidebar) and now I can set the colours for the projects. I am no longer stuck with fluro green and purple! Isn't he brilliant? I certainly think so! yes, the entire design is his, and he did it all himself. Thank you Chris!
On the knitting front, I have been working on a pair of socks using the leaf lace diamonds pattern. It's coming out quite well. I am trying to write out the pattern as I go alon. It is knitted using Patons Patonyle yarn. I find the colours a little distracting, but the yarn is nice to work with. I am nearly done writing out the pattern so if you are interested in testing the pattern for me before I put it in Celia's Basket (link above), leave me a message in the comments or send me an email. I will send you the pattern by email.
I am contemplating turning the beaded cardigan into a poncho. I know, ponchos are on the way out, but I have never been ne to follow current fashion. I am always a few seasons behind (or ahead, though rarely so) and it doesn't bother me that shrugs are becoming more popular. I CANNOT wear a shrug! Well, I can, but it's not a pretty sight. There's usually a lot of uhm, 'spillage'.
