Seeing stars

Saturday, August 12, 2006
Nope, I haven't been KOed (for years I thought that was a dyslexic mispelling! The joys of having family members with a learning disability!), I've signed up for a swap over at Craftster. The theme is "Stars" and going off the previous 3 swaps it should be great fun. If you're already signed up at Craftster and have made a minimum number of posts, sign up (they close next Sunday, the 20th)! I've already started gathering stuff in anticipation. I can't show anything here becuase it's not an anonymous exchange and my blog URL is in my signature over there.

Photos 'n' stuff:

I've uploaded a shed-load of photos from pre-Flickr times here. If you'd like to laugh at admire my early work it might be worth a look.

Bonny Charms:

The light quality is shocking at the moment, so I'm afraid this is the best I can do! I made some yarn bobbins out of a shoe box (bottom left of the picture). I'm doing two-handed colour work. There is a mistake in the chart, so if you buy the magazine just be aware of that.


Just finishing the toe on the second sock and then I've got to undo the toe on the first. If all goes according to plan, I should have these finished by Monday (as will the stripey shorts be).

SLLS near there!
Simply Lovely (!) Lace socks - the bane of my life!

Safety First!:

DPN case

I have a terrible fear of breaking my birch and bamboo double-pointed needles (good to know you're not alone, hey April?!) so I bought this cute little box when I was out in town on Thursday.

Well, until Monday (at the earliest) when I should have some more finished stuff to show.

  • hehehehe YES, very nice to know I'm not alone in that! I should really do the SLLS one of these days, I guess. It just stinks that they took 2 friggin months to get me the pattern so I totally lost my momentum =(

    I like the Bonny Charms thing! I want to try Fair Isle very soon, in the form of a little dress vest for my 7yrold.

    So many projects in my head!(to keep the voices company and give them something to do)
