Theme of the day

Bleh. Have been on a real downer recently. Have had a heavy cold too which hasn't helped. But I do have some knitting and even some crochet to report.

I finished the blue socks with the subtle rib. I haven't heard from the recipient yet but I was happy with them anyway.

I also finished the opal ones that were my first ever magic loop socks which I cast on at skipnorth. I feel quite sorry for sian as this is not a good pic of her but this is the only one I have of the socks in situ.

I have also made major inroads on the kaffe homage afghan from the interweave crochet my SP bought me from secret pal 6 or 7. I hope she's still checking in here. There's just one more panle to go which is already 2/3 done and then an edging.

I'm pretty pleased with it.

These were a real find when Pooch and I went to Leeds last weekend. These are my all time favourite sweets from my cholhood. Little choc fondant type things in colourful metal cases. I can still remember paying 2p each for these when spending my pocket money as a nipper.

They were a real blast from the past and tasted even better than I remembered. Pooch and I had a great time in Leeds, and had a box to see Rigoleto.

Sadly when I'm glum one of the things that makes me feel better is chocolate. And one of the things that makes me feel down is my weight. Can anyone see a conflict here? But hey ho. I did think this set up looked particularly appealing.

Love the afghan, really looks good!

Elizabeth said...

Wow! Yeah, I'd be pleased with that afghan too... it's going to be utterly gorgeous. It makes me ask yet again why I haven't learned to crochet yet.

Penny said...

I like the afghan, very colourful.

Hope you're not feeling too glum now.

Love the afghan!

I adore that blanket...it almost makes me want to commit to a full sized crochet blanket...almost. And have you lost about two stone or what? You look super trim in that pic of you in the lovely white shirt. Certainly nothing to fear from the odd chocolate or ten.
