A certain person in this house has been having a clear out, he is now at work so can't be berated for this find. I have much, much, much smaller glasses now, really, I think these could make 4 of my current ones. In fact I think these are actually car windscreens. I have also realised the error of frilly blouses!
Circa 1989 so I don't mind you seeing this one.
Sorry but another little rant, Short Row heels. Yes, I don't learn and have tried again. In fact I am very proud of these which I started and finished on my journey home.
It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based on the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. You all know I’m already a PIF type of person. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
My usual readers appear to be signed up so if there is anyone else out there interested you are more than welcome.

4 Skeins of 100% Merino Worsted weight yarn in Offshore. Dyed especially for me, what service. Free stitchmarkers too although I believe more than 4 will be needed for this project!
I am surely the last person to do one of these, the pattern is from 2004. May be a few weeks before cast on but I hope to get it done this side of Christmas. Ooops mentioned that word.

They remind me of frogs as well. Require a bit of washing.
And another, which is slightly more obvious. Twilleys Freedom Spirit in Fire. I am loving the River John Commuter Needles for travelling

As its highly unlikely that you'd get me on a plane to China, let alone an internal flight to see these we have booked, for 6th December, to see the travellers at the British Museum.
That's the birthday sorted, can't wait.
Tonight I am loitering in London after work and eating here
you need to read about it to know
its not quite as bad as it looks and sounds, I hope!

My main problem is the last few socks I have knit have been Yarn Yard Merino or Posh Yarn Emily which are much thicker than the Merino Tencel. Overall I think its the sort of yarn for a treat as it looks and feels silky.
Tomorrow I am going craft shopping, although I don't need anything......much.
P.S. I appear to have lost my stashalong counter, it wasn't anything to do with me. Honest. Does that mean its over?

My sisters latest production, she has cupboards full of homemade produce and very nice it is too.
A Dragonfly, sadly dead, that I met on my walk from the bus.

Back to socks and perhaps a few Christmas presents.
A weekend of eating F and C, well once.
A weekend of being beautified, Hair Cut. Its needed.
A weekend of eating home made cakes, don't you just love mothers.
Possibly a visit to Sheepish in The Shambles, York.
Hopefully a visit to the cinema to see Atonement.
This weekends project is Seduction Socks, what a name. In Yarn Yard Merino/Tencel.

Where is everyone.....relatively clear beach and dunes.
It was quite warm.
