The Knitting Coven participants assured me today that Pretty in Lime looks good in real life as well as internetally!!! I am so very pleased with it, and thank you for the lovely compliments!!! Though there will be no white T-shirts worn underneath, Sharon!!! I have bought a sewing pattern for a top to go with it, one like the picture in the Knitscene. The Knitting Coven was far too exhausting today. I showed how I insert a zip into a cardigan: Errol CardiFlynn was my assistant. I also made a Sock Knitting Tote for Katt. She and Caroline had a SKT tutorial!!! Too many things to write about, too much happened: Suzi 'did' Halloween, Sharon received a massage, Sandra D had a hat, Toni was knitting cuffs onto her felted mittens, Katt sold me green sock wool, Caroline Opal and Cathy knitted her fine 2ply at the end of the table.
I have sock wool coming out of my ears. In pyramidal order from the top and L to R: Katt's Green Gable, Opal Uni Green and Carnival, and The Knittery's Merino Cashmere in Chocolate, SeaLife and Mint Choc.
The Labradors and I received a gorgeous box of presents from Tianne and Boss. Of course The Labradors can suss out a present at 1000 paces!!! Harki especially liked both the Squeaky toys and Peri loved the box everything was posted in. It was her favourite thing except for the treats!!! I had a fragrant cup of tea in my Labrador mug with some shortbread. Yum Yum!!
Yesterday I ventured out into the wilderness I like to call 'the garden' and I spent 10 minutes weeding out the blackberries that have grown since the last blitz. Harki played her favourite game: Empty the Toy Box, and Peri waded in the paddle pool.
I have also been playing with the DVD recorder. I can speed copy 6 hours of 'things' onto a DVD-RW in just 16 minutes!! How excellent it that?? I have been dividing titles and partial deleting to my little heart's content.
I declare tomorrow to be the start of Recipe Week. There has been a dearth of recipes of late, so I'll do one a day. I promise!!!
Soon I will reach 1500 comments. To celebrate, I have decided that there will be 2 prizes:A Sock Knitting Tote and a Little Zippy Bag in the colour you desire!!! All you have to do is leave a comment on any posts from this one onwards till November 7th (actually the cut off point will be when I wake up on the morning of the 8th). One entry per person. Harki and Peri will draw the prizes in a manner yet to be determined!!! Enter away!!!
