Roll on 2006

Hello everyone - had to quickly drop in to wish everyone a wonderful 2006. 2005 has been a very interesting year for us - a lot has changed and I'm hoping for a more peaceful 2006 ! I wish you all a wonderful new year and many hours of happy knitting.

I have unfortunately run out of yarn for Manhattan - I ordered some more - actually I have ordered another 4 balls - which is quite a lot for a pattern to be short don't you think - anyway it is being delivered to my parents in law house and they are bringing it out with them when they come on 12 January. I am hoping to finish the lovely garment while they are here and then they can take it back with them for delivery to the very patient recipient !

I have started Ballerina and I think she is going to be a bit of a labour of love ! Knitting on circulars does not come easily to me, as my natural state is with a needle stuffed under my armpit. Still my Mum is worth it and I shall soldier on. I am sure it will look fabulous when it is done. It is actually rather nice to do something a bit scary ! Do you know what I mean ? this is knit so differently from anything else I've ever done - it will be interesting to see how it is all put together. I do have a bit of an issue with some of the translations in the pattern some of it is rather unclear, but I have just decided to make executive decisions about what it means and just get on with it - if I deliberate over every ambiguity I'll never get it done and my Mum will be waiting years and that's just not fair !

Right I have to go - Jacob is at nursery for a couple of hours and I need to make the most of it.

Take care all - have a lovely rest of holiday if you are still on holiday !

Oh it rained here yesterday - it was odd it was actually cool - about 19 Degrees and we felt just justified staying inside and watching telly and knitting - well I knitted James obvioulsy didn't ! Jacob was wearing jeans and a jumper - it was very strange indeed - still back to normal today, it's sunny and lovely again.

Happy new year - at least it brought you a cool day.

I'm so excited to see Manhattan, and what a lucky recipient. I'm sure she doesn't mind waiting a little extra time for you to finish her.

p.s. I'm also an armpit knitter, and circulars arn't that bad.

Very belated happy new year!

Yes, you *must* sign up for the Knitting Olympics - and of course you are Team GB (if you want). We seem to be a rather disorganised team, but gathering in strength. And if you are feeling hot in Oman, watching Winter Olympics will be sure to cool you down.
