Busy bee

Last week I meet Ruth. She knits, and does a lot of quilting. It is amazing that we have meet on the net for several months now, but only now we had the opportunity to meet face to face. She only lives 20 minutes from me! Yes it is unbelievable. So I brought my two wilds, and she brought her gorgeous girl. The kids made a plot against us, and the meeting was a little bit of confusion! But at the end I was very happy to meet someone that has the same craft taste has mine.
The mystery sock went to the frog pond. Don’t worry about that, I will cast on again; it is just that I knew that I made a mistake on the last row of the pattern as I turned to the heel. So updates on that next week. But the good news about that is that now I can do the socks with no worry about the yarn. I managed to find another ball in the shop, and now I can make the two socks from two balls, cool.
Nicole doesn’t have a decent coat to wear! Yes can you believe it; mummy does a lot of knitting but no coat for the poor girl to dress. So I put my needles at work without seam, just top down. Here is my evolution so far.

I’ve frog this one also a couple of times, I’m taking the idea from a pattern of a coat for babies. So that is why I’ve froged so many times, I think now I’ve got the right stitches in the needle. Don’t you think my stitch markers are cute? Handmade of course. By me. Here you don’t find any of those for sale, and seriously, the ones that I see on the net, with the shipping and the currency of the coin, are too expensive. So I thought of doing some for myself.
So has you can see I’ve been very busy. But looking at the calendar we are only 3 weeks from Christmas, and I still have a lot of presents also to do.


  1. Only three weeks? You can't be serious... I think I will have to add my "help!" shout to yours!

  2. What? What have I been thinking? I thought it was still ages away! (Mind you, I only realised it was November last week - I honestly thought it was October)

  3. Yeah, I am behind the ball on Christmas gifts too. I keep getting hooked on other new projects and designing patterns. oops

    It's nice to meet you, we post on one of the same Yahoo groups. So I had to check out your blog.
