the subject of knitting
Thank you for coming over to my new Facebook page and 'liking' me. Sounds funny that, don't you think? However the reality of setting up a page is anything but funny, it is time consuming and frustrating. It has also been the root of many a late night disagreement over the summer, which is why it's taken so long to get up and running and even now could be considered a work in progress. Anyone who has done so will surely testify to this? I'm starting to realise why the main man travels so much!
Anyway, I'm leaving it all behind for a few days soon and have booked a little trip to see my folks by the sea. I so rarely get to see them on my own and am looking forward to it immensely. What I'm also excited about is the journey as I'm planning several hours of unadulterated, uninterrupted knitting on the train. In fact, so keyed up am I on the prospect of finishing kaari that I am also researching the next project just in case there's a chance I can get it started on the way back home again.
I've got a hunch the Model could be about ready to submit to the idea of a cardigan, having shunned one before on account of all her itch inducing theories. Time and again I look at the likes of this and this, weighing up difficulty versus yarn because if I get it wrong, I have an inkling my future small girl knitting projects are going to be toast!
This weekend I'm partying with friends. And getting my Model back from her school survival camping trip .. how I have missed her. Before they went, the children were told they would be catching their own fish for supper. Then there was the possibility of spit roast lamb for another meal. "Do we have to catch our own lamb?" she asked the teacher!
Happy weekend. What are you up to?
