What will today bring ?

Every day bring us a new challange in one way or another even if we dont relize it each day i try to be posative, helpfull and not moan as much as the prevoius day but working with the public can put a lot of strain on this theory so try to do to others what you can expect of them and it might just all work out nicely .if not just count to 10...........or in my case a 110 !!!

Wednesday Workshop

Well Wednesday came around again and i was off two knitting group ,this time i wa excited to learn something new each first Wednesday of the month the ladies have a work shop and we all have a go at something new to learn this month it was Tunisian Crochet

its not like traditional crochet at all you start casting on the same but bye using a long needle type thing with a hook on the end ,it all looked very complected.

We all st round the table and Jane and Julie showd us how to do it it took a few attempts but i got there in the end bye the end of the evening i had grasped how to do it and manage a small test piece of about two inches (told you i was a slow learner) but as i sat on the bus going home i felt very proud of myself so hear is a picky of my master piece,cant wait till next month now.

new wool dodgey eyes!

well I've started a new project a fairels type cardigan ................its looks very complicated but the trick is in the yarn .
Crofter DK by Sirdar ooooh its lovely comes in lots of colour ways i was standing in hobby craft for what seamed like hours deciding on which one i went for grey black and whites or so i thort when i got ti home i cast on straight away as you knit it forms very clever stripy effect with bits. As the back piece grew i asked my daughter what colour she thort it was and she said it kind of green and blue and purple mum ..............no its not its black and grey i said to her .errr no mum its not.
In the day light out side the next morning i could see the colours better and she was right ...i was a bit disappointed because they were not the colours i wanted at all.My eyes are getting that bad these days with the colours and it was quiet dim light lighting in hobby craft i didn't notice ,but as Ive knitted up a bit more its begin to grow on me .........ha !
Will just have to wear matching clothes when i put it on and make sure i ask holly what colour they are as the wool was quiet pricey i;m not letting it go to waste will try to take some pics to show you how its developing.
