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.
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.
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.
