Yes, I am throwing a ‘Jana’!!* My left shoulder muscles are complaining about the fact that I have Dr_who_zuc_sleeves knitted the 2 sleeves for the Dr Who ZUC in 3 days!!! I am having to rest, cry that my Games hopes are over, and stomp off to the bedroom!!! I am having to knit a little, then read, or do some Project Spectrum embroidery, and then knit again. It does not bode well for a Games Medal!!!

In more medal news, I have, amazingly, won the Best Designer Sock division in the Westbury World Wide Sock Knitting Competition.  Who knew my socks really were the stuff of designer dreams? Cathy also won a prize, though I’m not sure in which division.  Thanks to Suzi, Margaret, Sandra D The_charlotte_socks_1 and Katt for giving me the news, and their congratulations!!! I would have liked to go to the WWW Sock Competition, but I have been feeling a little pale and I slept away the afternoon yesterday without a care or worry.

The Labradors had an enthusiastic walk today. They ran after (non-existent) kangaroos and played chasings and then ran about at home in the Sun. It was cool on our walk, even cold, and I wore a long-sleeved top for the first time since I don’t know when. Even so, it is sunny and warm now.

ACMA gave me great recipe packs for Christmas. They have all the spices and herbs you need to El_burrito_spain make one of 2 recipes on the pack. I made Spanish Chicken. I coated strips of chicken thigh meat in the chilli, whole fennel seeds, basil, smoked paprika and garlic and herb salt, and then fried them in olive oil, and made a salsa out of corn, tomato, parsley and red onion, and made a Spanish Burrito!!!! I spread the floury burrito with sour cream, added some luscious avocado and the salsa and chicken and devoured it like there was no tomorrow. It was utterly delicious. When I am pale and too tired to think of what to cook, I can use the great packets, and not eat toast and Vegemite for every meal!!!

Im_a_teapot I have a new ‘teapot’. It is an 8 cup coffee pot really, but in truth it makes 2 my-size cups of tea. I am drinking Orange Pekoe at the moment!!!

There is a new Spring/Summer Vogue Knitting and a new KnitSimple as well. I will have to investigate their soon-to-be-here-edness!!!

Congratulations Cindy on your win at the www sockfest!
I'm sorry you couldn't be there but I saw the photo's on Suzie & Katt's blogs.
Hope you're feeling more energetic soon.


Congrats on the WWW win.

My entry was in the coloured sock section. I was really chuffed to win.

I couldn't get to the Festival as had been away all the day before so was a little (read a lot) disappointed not to get there.
