Last Minute News

Hey there - Jacob and I are flying off to the UK this afternoon for a six week holiday - sadly James is staying behind to earn the bread and butter ! But we are excited - I think it's going to be fun.

A friend of mine just hot footed a couple of photos to me of her daughter wearing a One Skein Wonder that I knitted for her and they were so fab I had to share them with you before we jetted off.

This little beauty is knitted in Wendy Cosmic I think - it was something that I picked up at a show last year and thought would be good as an edging (and it is I already used it to edge a lovely blue cotton jumper for a little girl) anyway - this was a bit of a blighter to knit and you have to do it all in one sitting otherwise there is no way of telling which is the right and the wrong side ! Picking up the stitches was - interesting - but I soldiered through and the recipient is delighted with it, so that is the main thing.

Right I'm off to have brekkie and finish the packing - see you later.

I hope you have a fabulous vacation Becky. You sound so excited. I order all my yarn from the UK. Believe it or not, its less expensive than ordering it right here in Canada.

Your One Skein Wonder is simply fabulous. What a beautiful little girl!!

Your Diagonal-Front Jacket turned out smashing!! I am finishing up the collar on mine today. Managed to find a place in the UK to order that extra yarn I needed thank goodness!! I made the largest size. I like my cardigans with lots of room.
