Oh my.....what a week!

Here's the news in brief - I'm finally feeling better. Hurrah - still a bit husky though. I quit my course and re-registered for a new one - what a huge sense of relief. I'm a brunette again - too shy to post pics - as I look like a gorgon in every single picture taken of me. Finally I posted new piccies of my most recent completed sock and my fingerless mittens. Loads of other stuff but I'll have to post that when I have more time.

A close up, out of the box - please take note of the ad fab sock wool. Also these are my first solo dig camera piccies - so not very good. Posted by Hello

Hello world.

I'm finally starting to shrug off this cold. I still have a hacking cough but feel a little more human today. I was actually well enough to start knitting my fingerless gloves and do a few rows of Charlottes Web.

I've updated my blog a bit more - still a few more tweaks and stuff needed but almost there...perhaps I should post some links to other blogs.....if I can work out how. I'll ask my fellow Knitty's to send me an idiots guide.

S'later, Pxxxx

Updating my blog

Things are still a bit whoopsa daisy as I'm updating - so a few bits are missing. In the meantime I've posted a piccie of J's Turtle that I knitted for him from the World of Knitted Toys book. He's a total cutie and is already well loved.

Catching up.

Life is very hectic (again) at the moment.

I did manage to knit J a Turtle though....I thought he'd like the spider monkey, but no, a Turtle no less, was his object of desire.

Tomorrow, might be a designated knitting day as the washing machine man is coming and their timings are legendary. Phone at 8.30am and we'll let you know what time he'll be there - ring, ring - 'Our engineer will be with you between 9 and 1 o'clock - only 4 hours then to sit about waiting for the door bell to ring then (if they're on time that is) - .

I am hating this years uni course - I thought the one I finished in Sept was dull but compared to this one, it was sparkling, bright and challenging, this one is full of P.C C***piness. I'm actually having to force myself to do it - not good - as I find it very easy to find ways to avoid studying.

Do you like the weather pixie? She's no good at the weather though - today she shows - sunshine and blue skies - it's grey, miserable and overcast - little pixie liar. It looks a bit like me though (she's cuter). And I'll have to change her to a brunette soon, as I'm fed with being a blonde and am going back to my natural dark brown, later this month - I do like to keep my hairdresser on her toes.

I'm still working out how to drive this blog thing- I want to put other stuff on my page but can't get my head around it - I'll have to ask ML - I might change my template too. Anyway that's about it for now, s'later.xxxx
