What a lovely idea, Pink and good planning to start early
12/03/2010 at 13:22
I intend to bribe someone to knit mine for me.  Anyone like to offer?
12/03/2010 at 13:38
Certainly not, Mr W, that goes against  the spirit of it

I will know unless you're planning to pretend you knitted it in your lunch hours at work (how much stick?) or on the train (where I have spies)

Thanks for the hints on changing colours. I shall try that once I've finished doing the tricky heel bit.

Purl 3 through the back loops is proving kinda tricky . Good job this is a practice run with charity shop wool

It's not knitting, but may I just post this, my latest completed project.


I'm still slightly annoyed about the alignment mistake, but at least it was the same mistake on all 4 quadrants. A square mount seemed to best option, I couldn't work out what you could do so as to make it look less wonky.

Helen it's lovely. I love the red inner mount against the light outer mount and frame.

I went into town this afternoon and came back with some blue variegated sock wool and a book on ribbon embroidery...like I need any more craft books

Very true Beebs.

Just finished a pink bamboo/silk blend scarf for a friend . Just have to darn the ends in and I'll be able to post it on Monday. Pic on FB after the rugby.

That is lovely HL!

I've started yet another pair of Mary Jane slippers... one can never have enough slippers.

As subtle as a sledgehammer. x

From the days when I dabbled in needlepoint 

All good pieces of work are a little lopsided!!

LN - they are fantastic.

That's it, I'm inspired.

Tiny Tears is coming out of the loft and I'm going to find the few bits and bobs I did get left by my Nan.  I'll start scouring the charity shops for other stuff and I'm going to knit.  If I start now, I'll have a jumper by winter.

PS It would be lovely if this thread kept it's audience.

Sadly I can only upload photos from my mobile to here so they are not too good but I shall let you see the original Mousey

Love those LN  and I'm in total awe at the needlework from Helen & Meldy, gawjuss stuff.

I went to collect my yarn from a shop I've not been to before and it was amazing.  Such gawjuss wools and really nice staff who are so enthusiastic.  They were happily sorting out somebody's knitting for them and when I admired a scarf the lady said not to bother buying the pattern as it was only a 4 line one so she just wrote it down for me.  I shall certainly go back there.  Shame I didn't have much time to stroke and coo over all the lovely stuff but the rugby was calling ......
