In my handbag, I have 200g of Malabrigo worsted in salmon pink, 200g of Artesano alpaca aran in dark brown and 100g of black Debbie Bliss pure silk. That's a world of soft and none of it's for me. They're all for Christmas and Birthday knitting that had better be appreciated.

kisobel and Paul got married on Saturday. It was lovely. I met some great people. I will probably post more, but it felt apt to post my congratulations here first! Congratulations to both of you.

I knitted an elephant, to take to Italy as a present for my little cousin. (It's not my pattern, but Elefante.)

Had a fabulous week. Was looking at my photos last night and I love the way this one from Venice accidentally picked up a pigeon.

A few weeks ago, I was discharged from the work physio. I've been knitting like a demon. 

A picture heavy post on knitting...Collapse )
Otherwise, life continues to chug along nicely.

I'm freshly back from Strasbourg, where I have eaten enough heavy Alsatian food to have put on half a stone in a week. Goddamn it. Well, that's what happens if you eat snails every night just to have an excuse to eat melted garlic butter.

I've not been knitting as the new job has led to one of my regular bouts of RSI. Until I can sleep the night without waking up with horrendous pins and needles, my stash is in hibernation. So, I'm back to having nothing to blog about. Sorry!

I realise I owe some postings...
Once I'm through this RSI-blip and can type and knit again, I'll be back...

 Yesterday, I left the flat for work as usual, then thought I'd just check that the gas was off - I use a griddle instead of a toaster, and make my morning coffee on the hob too - put my hand in my pocket, and found I had picked up the keys to my mother's house rather than mine.  Cue me being an hour late for work as I had to go to the letting company in West Norwood, pick up the master, let myself back into the flat, pick up my key and head back to drop off the master.  

Today, I forgot my glasses. I have emergency contacts in my drawer at work, so I can see, but it's not the same and my eyes are dry already. 

I think my brain is going.

 I am in the new flat. Unfortunately, a lot of my stuff is still in the Big Yellow at West Norwood. Anyone is welcome for a cuppa/glass of vino once I am unpacked. 
I am learning to knit cables. This is easier and yet still more complicated than it sounds.
