Kew and Queue

Knitting first... the 2-needle socks progress nicely. Turned the heel on the first one.

Ah, actually that's the only knittign I can show as the rest has been secret knitting. But you can go and look at it on ravelry (I'm littlelixie btw). I do however wish to highlight this little bit of it...

A while ago there was a big fuss about knit clips to hold knitting together while you sort out the seam. These are hair clips - about a £1 for 20 in matalan and other more reputable establishments. Work really well. Or why not break out the patterned ones...

Very cute!

So lastly on the knitting front - queues. I now have 74 things in my queue on ravelry. Is this normal? I suppose I ought to go and poke around in someone else's and find out. I just keep seeing things I like and want to make. The new knitty.com has also added a few items to it. There is a circular yoke in brown/turquoise I rather like the look of.

And so to other things - Pooch and I went all the way to Kew today. I looooooved it - Pooch didn't. He'd expected there to be animals. I really love a nice plant, especially some variegated foliage. Pooch and I both agreed that the waterlily house was the best. Amazing to see them so big and surrounded by every type of chili you can think of growing on bushes. Enjoy...

But what would this blog be without the weekly wine inspection. Tesco have a sale on so the collection has grown somewhat. We're well into third row territory. I haven't yet enquired whether it is red or white, but as soon as I find out I'll report back.

don't worry about 74 I have 96! I use the queue more as a place to put patterns I really like so I can find them again - nothing worse that knowing that their is the perfect pattern for your new sock yarn out there only you can't remember where it was, what it was called etc.

yes it's normal, I have 111. Kew is looking good, and the shoes are awesome! Gonna try the claw clip trick, but i think my favoured establishment will be the equally upmarket Primark.
