Stripes!!

Stitching on Dolly Mamas is finished, just the making up to do over the weekend so i'll share that with you after its completed. Would anyone like the chart now i've finished with it? say so in your comment and i'll get DH to draw a name if there is more than one of you.

Looking forward to some excitment as i took the socks with me to the stitchy club last night. Cast on, begin to knit ... just look at it, how can that random wool be knitting up in stripes? even the cast on row and first row is a stripe!! If i wanted to do this i bet i couldn't, i guess its the size/length of each colour in the wool. It's long enough to start the heel shaping so that should liven things up a bit. Its lovely and soft though.

This cute funny was in my inbox today. Awwwww i can hear you all saying but do you remember the song first time round and can you sing along to it!!

Tonight i'm having an early birthday pressie, a night out with DH and DD. We're off to the theatre, a new one opened in our city last year and we haven't been yet. The performane is Phillip Pullmans, His Dark Materials Pt 1. I've read all 3 books in the trilogy and seen The Golden Compass film so am really keen to see how the professionals in conjuction with the community theatre groups bring this alive on stage.

Hope you are all well and thanks for your visit

Love the stripy sock Julie - I must have a look fro that pattern as I haven't been able to get on with 4 needles or a circular needle either! Hope you enjoyed HDM - I love those books- have read them about 4 times so far!

Like the stripy sock, very odd that it worked out that way! Hope you enjoyed your night out.

Hi Julie, lovin' your sock so far..can't wait to see how you get on with it. I found a pattern and wool online so I'm hoping it's 2 needles like yours.....Will start them when I finish my cardigan which will be wither this week or next.

Hope you enjoyed the play...
Happy knitting and stitching....
