I have been all Scott of the Antarctic!!!
Saturday I went along to the Knitting Coven stall and I went to MrsMacGyver's party. It was a party for those of a certain age. We were oh so civilised: we drank some bubbly ( one glass for me and then cups of tea), ate some nibbles ( 3 party pies and some fig paste and feta cheese, oh and sour worm lollies and a Wizz Fizz for me) watched video music clips from the olden days and chatted till late. I certainly 'lived it up'. I was home after 11pm, which is such a late night for me, even though I had been sleeping in anticipation. I was trying to build up a sleep credit. It didn't work. I still have a cold. On Sunday I slept in till 12-36pm. Yes, that's right, till the afternoon. I had opened the dog door for The Labradors, but they didn't get fed till 1 o'clock!!
MrsMacGyver rang about 1-45pm and then we went to a 'happening'. Do you recognise this piece of a man on the left in B&W?? He was there and so were a lot of other volunteers who had performed a very wonderful good deed for some friends. They will be on the TV at the end of July. MrsMacGyver and I are hoping not to be on TV. We spent a lot of time camera avoiding, though we took lots of photos!! Then there was more bubbly after the unveiling!!
Today I have taken The Labradors for a walk. It has been raining in the last few days and they have been walking in the rain, revelling in the wetness and puddles of water everywhere!!! I also went to TBSODLTM where I purchased a lot of things that I might take a photo of later as they had a 20% off sale........
Kermit, The Rainbow Connection Scarf, is complete. It was a scarf made of 2 strands of 5ply knitted together with a 1/2 ball offset, so the colours mingled. I was inspired by the UK Simply Knitting!!! It was a present for MrsMacGyver : she likes lots of colours. There is blue, well two blues, so this qualifies for Project Spectrum too!!!
I am currently working on Bolshoi. It is an Interweave Ballet Wrap Cardigan in 12ply Rustic, colour: Elm, from Bendigo. I have to knit on giant needles that I hate. I am enduring it as a means to a desired end. I had to knit wih 8mm. It was like knitting with telegraph poles. It is very fast though with 6mm now and I am just about to the underarm cast off after just knitting through Jericho. Very fast indeed!!! Elm is green even though it looks, well, a boogelly grey colour!!!
