I have drafted perhaps 5 separate blog posts about all sorts of things, in far too much detail.
First up: a finished sock for FL, using the Paul Atwell pattern by Emily Johnson. One down, one to go.
FL fell full length on the ice tonight on a family outing to the bins. One second he was up, and the next he was flat on his face. He is OK, but we all got a big fright. We can't take the rubbish in the car (as we usually do) because it is so hard to stop the car at the end of the road. That 180 degree turn of yesterday? We think the car simply slid of its own accord, despite the handbrake being on, because we had a similar experience while we were in it this morning. Scary!
I have new shoes! A January Sale bargain! They are by Camper, style name = Mamba. Don't pay £100, ladies - you can get them for far far less!
P.S. they come in purple too, my purple-loving pals!
And finally: a new “instant gratification” knitting project: the Cabled Keyhole scarf by Anne Hanson as a belated Christmas gift for my aged aunt.
I am using Berroco Blackstone Tweed from another Raveller's destash. The colour is much darker, deeper, richer than this photo suggests - a really gorgeous midnight blue. It is very very soft - I would love to make a full-sized garment out of this luxurious yarn!
Now that wasn't so hard, was it Roo?
