|See those egg cosies on the Mollie Makes magazine?|
They are by Suzie who runs the Knit Club I go to.
She has a book coming out in the Autumn.
Gawd talk about over stretching myself! Why did I think it would be a good idea to try to do lace knitting? Why did I then think "I must make wrist warmers out of Kid Silk Haze in a lace pattern to wear to a wedding in May"?
|There's a big mistake up the top near the needle. I did a purl row when I shouldn't.|
Oh my, what a lot of swearing I have been doing.
"Gah! I've bloody gone wrong again. Stupid bleeding knitting. Don't flipping breathe near me! You're distracting me. Oh for flipping hells damn ar*eing sake. I CAN'T DO IT!!!!!!"
So I count to ten and then I do the only thing I can do at times like this. I try again, optimistic that I'll manage it this time....I'm slowly getting there.
Another reason for not getting any shots of my shawl was because we had Bee and co. to stay for the weekend. It was her birthday ages and ages ago but for one reason or another I didn't get to see her to give her her gift till this weekend. I made her a crochet stash bag (just typed 'crotch stash bag', I am spluttering) for her giant granny square which is looking suuuuuuuuper.
I want to show you this plasticine Grommit that Little Cuckoo made when he went to the Wallace and Grommit studios with his best friend last year. He had some help but he really got involved and now his creation sits proudly on the shelf in the kitchen.
|Like my new table cloth? Spot the calpol to the right? Little has had a wicked |
virus and has been so poorly for a whole week.

with a plastic chicken drumstick
Didn't he do well!
And for those of you who would like to make your own there's the step by step guide.
Is anyone out there a lawyer? Has access to a sister, brother, husband who is a lawyer? I know lawyers are crazy busy but I wonder if they'd take a look at the Pinterest Terms and Conditions and reassure me that it's unlikely us pinners will get sued. I read this blog post the other day and I am spooked right out. Could I really get in big trouble? Could YOU really get in big trouble?
Did you hear about the blogger whose image was taken up by Tesco and splashed all over a jumper without her knowledge or permission? Should I have a copywrite note on my blog? Are we all revealing way too much in cyber space? So much to think about.
