A little extreme, but I like it!

Check that out!!!
It's in the Erika Knight New Knits book I bought today. It's so awful, I love it! It could be my knitted knitting chair!
I'm very tempted to make it, I can tell you. Maybe in pink though.
I went over to Maggie's today. I bought some gorgeous quilting cotton, in my favourite colour, pink. I'd never wear it as I think I'd feel like a giant marshmallow, but I love it anyway. Here's my most artistic attempt...

and she was having a book sale. How could I resist????

That should keep me going for a bit.
Before I go off to make sausage and mash for dinner, yea, admit it, you're jealous of the glamorous life I lead, let me show you a couple of things I'm putting on my to do before Christmas list..

How clever is that? The bar code dog coat has a pattern so you can put your telephone number on it in case your dog gets lost and loses its collar on the same day!

And this, a knitted wire basket.

Apparently, wire is really easy to knit with, according to Erika Knight. We'll see. If I end up with hands ripped to shreds by wire, maybe my injuries will still be too severe in December to cook Christmas dinner!

Yes it is so bad that you gotta love it! You MUST have a pink knitted chair! Can you imagine how long it would take you to knit that up! HAHA!

I am liking that "new knits" book. She has 2 more coming out soon too!

That chair cover is gorgeous! I so love anything with cables and aran stitiches :) The only problem is that my cat loves my knitting and if I tried that chair cover I'm afraid he might never let me sit in it!! *grin*
