Thank you, thank you, thank you all for your fantastic suggestions on how to get back my knitting mojo.
They really did work. Look..
The Argosy scarf is finished and drying on my guest bed! I do love it and it is my first finished Christmas present. My friend doesn't read here, so I'm safe! I shall sew some sequins on the ends when it's dry as she's a sparkly sort of person.
Here's a close up. I loved how it looked a bit like lace (having never knitted lace) without bring a fiddly pattern.
I have also been making this quilt for my friend who is ill.
I'm hoping to finish it by the weekend. My famile are off to the Foo Fighters on Sunday, so I'm looking forward to a day doing knitterly and sewerly things.
I was so blown away by your good ideas to get my mojo back. Such fantastic things to inspire anybody in a lull. It's funny, I was thinking that I don't know any of you guys personally, but it's almost as though you know me and I know you from just ramblings on a blog meant for knitting. Lots of my real life friends know nothing of my blog, and I like that. My virtual friends are a different part of my knitting life and I would share with you different ideas and thoughts. I mean, you might not be interested in what yarn I'm considering for a knit, but I'd think you were! But in my other life, I don't think anyone would know anything about dilemas I have like that, and other stuff. And I like it like that.
Just wanted you to know I appreciate you all and love the comments you leave, and love reading your amazing blogs. Feel the love, people!
Anyway the winner of my contest was............(drumroll)
Queen of the Froggers
Ta da. She sent me a link to the most amazing piece of knitting
which Winnie at guavaseeds designed.
I love it. This is mine so far
I'm thinking the holes will look more like the picture when it's blocked. I think it'll take a while to finish, but I don't care. I just love it.
Silver belle news. None. I made a mistake and I can't bear to pick it up again. One day soon I'll pluck up the courage and hopefully not chuck it in the bin. I just need to be in the mood.
So that's it. My update. Sorry I've been off the radar a bit recently. I have been visiting you all, just quietly. But now I'm back.
Obviously when I have a moment from being addicted to watching I'm a Celebrity, get me out of here. How did Janice Dickinson EVER get to be a model????????????
