I am a bit reluctant to say it is a lovely day here as it started off like this yesterday and then turned to worms as my DH would say. Its Wednesday so its WOYWW again. If you don’t know about this then hop over to Julias blog here and see more lovely work desks.
My desk is terribly messy today as I was out yesterday afternoon and evening and just left it as was in the morning. I am making a card for a WI group competition tonight – nothing like last-minute then – and I have two images which I can’t make my mind up over. They are both freebies from various sites and it is the first time I have used them at a sensible size as I wasn’t able to work out how to resize them until last week when ES initiated me into the magic world of Inkscape. I still haven’t formed a real plan in my mind as to what the cards will look like but I will show tomorrow when they/it will be finished and I will let you know the outcome of the competition.
Yesterday one of my missions in town , amongst many I may add – why do family think you can do all their messages as well when you are retired? – was to get some wool to knit myself a long-sleeved cardigan / jumper.
It is another Noro wool which I have used before and I think will knit up in beautiful heathery colours. It is called Kureyon Sock Yarn and is what was usually known as 4 ply so will be a nice fine fabric and as it is 70% wool should be lovely and warm too. Not something I’m going to be able to finish in a week but well worth the effort. It is knitted on 2.75 and 3.25 mm needles – old english sizes 12 and 10. So looking through my vast store of new bamboo and old steel needles find I have the 10’s and 3 pairs of 11’s and a pair of 13 but NO 12’s. I asked my friend when I went out last night if she had a pair I could borrow until Thursday when I am next in town and fortunately she had so I can at least cast on this afternoon before I go out again this evening!!
Off to link to WOYWW and to finish off my childs card for tonight.
Edit : I’m No 80 for those getting confused. Some one snook in before me!
