The Christmas ornie for July is yet another one that has been in my 'to do' pile for such a long time. I love this, it reminds me so much of Mr Moe. Of course as you will recognise its a Margaret Sherry design, it comes from 'Country Friends' the free calendar for 2004 from Cross Stitcher magazine. The santa fabric is what i chose to back it with, quite appropriate for the saying i thought.
Part 2 of the Loopylou Christmas Wishes SAL. Not a lot to stitch this month, the pot under the tree, wording and pulled threadwork. 2 things can be crossed off from the sidebar for this month, now to concentrate on Dom Challenged, Amy's brithday is early next month so thats got a deadline. We've also had the instructions for the mail art exchange so i''ll be busy looking for some seaside theme charts this week.
As promised, here is what i bought at the LNS. I've wanted to knit socks for such a long time but didn't fancy using 4 knitting pins to do it or a circular needle. I had been looking on the web and found a chart that uses only 2 needles. Fate must have stepped in when i entered the LNS as i picked up one of the booklet folders and guess what was the first chart in there... yep, it was the one i'd seen on the web and they also had the 4 ply wool to go with it. A little pricey at £5.95 for a 100grm ball but how could i resist. There are 12 different shades of this wool each with a sign of the zodiac for the name, i chose the Leo one as thats my starsign. My knitting bag is shouting loudly but i have promised myself i wont begin them till Amys pressie is all stitched otherwise she might not get it till next birthday!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend whatever your plans
