happy blog birthday

3 years ago today I was bored on the Gold Coast working on low brow TV wondering how to fill in the hours when I was not knitting or drafting.

Thus this blog was born - musings and photos and knitting and pretty much anything I can think of gets chewed on over here.

So thanks to you all for your patience, comments and reading my words.

There is a competition on the way but not just yet.......


SPOILER ALERT - *****Vanessa you are not allowed to read any further til after next weekend!!!!!!













So knitting wise I am going to have a personal sock club for 2010, I think I have said this already.  There are two piles one for me and one for S.V.  Can you guess which pile is for whom.  I am planning on a pair every 6 weeks and I know the piles add up to more but I like choice and I am not good with have to knits.





Here are the first socks of 2010 personal sock club underway , and for Sock Victim- a regia cotton yarn perfect for summer









Knitabulous yarn is my weakness at the moment and the club at the moment is fab I am part way through my first sock



this just slipped into my stash this month too......
this is the second instalment of the yarn - a 50/50 wool silk blend just perfect for a scarf or shawl.....



like this on my first shawl for 2010 - an Aestlight for my S.I.L.'s birthday

Then there is the test swatch for Viften - or Fan for the Easter show in knit picks - I am loving it, the purl is a slip stitch on the wrong side.  A few more rows and I will block this for measuring.




And some finished projects -Part of my large Xmas socks scheme - these were for Mum and here she is kindly modelling them for me - Rav details here  Lacy Rib socks from Wendy Knits



Some 'not evil crochet' Toshiko scarf from Morris and Sons in their yarn - a fun crochet

I think the greens, greys are your colours. Nice knitting and yes Knitabulous yarn is very nice, I can't wait to have time to start on my socks and then get to the second package, hopefully before the 3rd is sent out.

Congratulations on 3 years! I love the knitabulous yarn too, I have about 9 different colors and just wound up 2 skeins today for my personal sock club for 2010! I cant wait to see what you knit for this year apart from socks. I love your shawl too, how many skeins did it use.
