SP11 Questionnaire

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like?
I don't like cheap acrylic or most eyelash yarns. Apart from that I'm fairly easy. I do prefer things to be machine washable even though I handwash most of my knits.
2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?
I have a needle roll and a crochet roll that I made myself. I don't use dpns much as I make all my socks on 2-needles or a circular (magic loop).
3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?
I'd say I was an advanced bodger in that I can do most things but won't mourn if I make a mistake. The one thing I haven't tried is a big lace project. I can't decide whether I want to or not.
4. Do you have an Amazon or other online wish list?
No, sorry.
5. What's your favorite scent?
Vanilla and strawberry. I don't wear perfume but I love scented candles with those perfume…

More Wedding Photos

Here are all of them: link. I'm not mentioning this so that you can get prints of my photos, but if you register for your own kodak gallery account you get 30 free prints. If you register as a result of viewing my album you only get 20. I'm trying not to take it personally.

Still trying to catch up with all the bits and bobs that have been left to fester for the last few weeks. I have however finished off some john lewis vouchers on the yarn for hanne falkenburg's mermaid. Pooch has said, and is not denying he has said, that...


Oh yes. Now obviously as a modern woman I don't let a man tell me when I can and can't go shopping but I am aware I have quite a lot already and so had previously agreed to cut down until at least some of the current stash was used up. But.... since he's said that...

Also another wedding present arrived in the post today - Norah Gaugha…

The aftermath

Helloooooo! Well here I am back in blogland again and firmly established as the current Mrs Whittaker. I have only had one incident of answering the phone and saying "Al*x B*rne....I mean Whittaker" so far which I think is rather good for a week. Pooch and I are off to another wedding today which will give me my first opportunity to refer to 'my husband' which I'm also looking forward to.

So photos? Well, photobucket is down so I can't do my usual uploads but here are a few through the wonders of the internet.

This is me in the taxi chortling away on the way to the registry office. The murky lump in my hand is my knitted bouquet.

Next up is the happy couple, with me still chortling away. Pooch's buttonhole was also knitted.

Then finally here is Pooch on our honeymoon, communing with nature in the form of a chicken which took to following us around for a while. We were actually at the domestic fowl trust looking at all the rare chickens and it was awesome. I h…
