Knitting Up A Storm!


Wednesday, March 14, 2007

Last Thursday I went to Heather's house (blogless fellow SnB'er friend) for a hair trim and wound up buying this stuff from her:


Want a close up? This is as good as a close up I can take because I am the worlds worst photographer:


It is Quartette, 80% merino wool and 20% cashmere and I have 2200 yards of this stuff. It knits up to 6.25 stitches per inch. Little needles required, but I think it will be nice.

I need some help figuring out this camera - hey Brenda are you up for the job? Next time I'll put the memory card in so you can play with it.

Conveniently Heather lives right across the street from the Naked Sheep. Of course I'd be a fool not to pop in and have a look around, and I bought this:


It is the Hemp for Knitting pattern Lacy little top. Maybe I could use the Quarette? Maybe.

It appears I have been doing quite a bit of shopping in the last week - shame we have Online Banking because now the hubby can see all purchases within seconds of me swiping the debit card. Damn technology!

The fitness routine is off to a good start in the first week. My plan for this week is to go to the gym Monday, Wednesday and Friday and I have gone to the gym at 6am both days! Yeah! If I make it on Friday, I'll be very pleased as punch with myself. I am not going gang busters at the gym, only walking for about 25 minutes and doing light weights on the machines. I really need to loose this extra weight I am carrying around - I am on a mission folks.

Have a good one.
