Tam Jacket

I finally cast on something from the amazing 'Unexpected Knitting' book at the weekend. I deliberately chose chunky yarn so it went quickly.

I really like it! I sewed back the corners of the front to make it look like a little collar.

Next time a baby comes along I'll make one of these in fairisle. Should look beautiful.

I've finally got around to taking some decent pictures of the stitchmarkers I got last year. I had been emailing the creator and asked whether he ever did personalised ones of people's faces - children, partners etc. The conversation developed and I sent him a pic of the Pooch. And look at this!

Isn't that amazing? I also bought a pig, rabbit and black sheep at the same time. He is amazingly talented and the finishing is awesome.

So cute!

Now Pooch and I have a fairly entertaining relationship. There are certain disagreements but they rarely last too long. Tonight, for instance, he wouldn't give me any of his chocolate yoghurt, so I took his glasses and hid them. He went and found his old pair and when I went onto Ravelry this is what I saw.

..............Hmph. Next time I take his glasses, I'm going to take the spare pair too.

i had to read this one (glasses wars) aloud to my husband, even though it probably doesn't mean nearly as much to him...good ha!

Now that was just uncalled for! So, you hid his glasses, big deal. It was his fault, anyway, for not sharing his yoghurt. He's flirting with death blocking Ravelry like that! Silly man!
