A real post this time!

OK, another busy weekend, and this is what I've got to show for it! I donned a pinny on Sunday, being FREEZING down here was the perfect day to clean up and bum around. And they are so comfy! This one has sort of flarey sides, so it's a bit of an a-line skirt with no back in it. Better remember that on Pants off Friday!
The 'room' has been left half messy (who can create in tidy anyway) and my first sewing in the house was done- mending little Miss's quilt. Sure, it took about 5 secs, but it's a start!


Note to self: don't take Little Miss to Spotlight anymore. There was big Western Bulldogs display in the front of the shop (bloody point of sale marketing) so I have been conned into making her a beanie! I at least got a say in the wool- none of that fluffy stuff for me, the Cleakheaton Country is nice to use.

Now to help me out- anyone got a good pattern? The request- stripey; a pompom top (no Wee Willie Winkie style which I am good at!) and I want ear flaps. I haven't joined Ravelry, should I do that? Would love some help from the knitters out there, remember, I give away wool!

Join Rav, it takes a day or two depending on the waiting list and the you're off. Best bit is it's free and you have access to such a wealth of patterns both free and not, and also the forums for when you need help. Go for it, your only regret will be the time you though tyou used to have disappearing...somewhere....
