This proves that I did some knitting on my very long break.Actually, I did alot-designed 3 sweaters(2 finished),1 angora lacy hat and a felted bag. All, of course, need to be photographed so you may or may not see them for awhile…
What is going on with the weather in London?
Have updated the events page,but still a WIP. Crazed and currently panicking about what to take to the Stitch and Creative Crafts Show at the Bath showgrounds next week-have too much great stuff-poor me….The biggest problem is getting it to fit into car.
For all you Ravelry readers, my pattern store is now open.[click on ravelry button to right to hopefully reach my profile-ehdknits]. And if you are not into Ravelry,sign up now-it’s the most phenomenal example of how the web can bring communities together. If you are not into ravelry all my patterns are available in pdf form via e-mail-just contract me if you see anything you’d like.

in case you think I have been doing nothing but sitting on the beach- I have actually done quite a bit of knitting- new bag 1st sample, new blue heron cardigan (more later),moose dog collar almost needlepointed. However, I have actually done alot more SHOPPING! God, it is amazing…..
most ridiculous American fast food I’ve seen so far- frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches from Costco.but before you pronounce this the absolute epitome of laziness, consider that the crusts are off, the edges are crimped so the stuff doesn’t drip out and they do defrost quite nicely on the beach…. Actually, I am quite fond of fast food and have discovered Checkers which does sublime french fries( excuse me, chips) for about 50 cents. have not made it to Krispy Kreme yet….

so every morning after my nice husband brings me coffee I turn on the computer and the next thing I know its 11-am not pm (thou’ somtimes it feels like it is) a year ago I got in the habit of staying in the bedroom to work as the construction noise from downstairs was so bad – so some days I am still in my pj’s!! gasp-
so is the computer a major time suck??//-what am i @working@on? here’s the list-ravelry pattern additions, photo resizing,flickr uploads, trying to figure out this blog stuff(too much time reading lorelle and forums on technical advice,google site stuff( a good couple of hours with no result), also need to source new needlepoint cuz if I don’t do it this winter it won’t get done, researching blackberry stuff in an effort to increase my productivity(snort…) the list of time suckers goes on
other things I’ve been doing- teaching,trying to finish cardigan, knitting hearts(don’t ask ), working on moose- the debonnaire cavalier’s-dog collar which is a prototype for my new belt finisher to leather up,3 new designs sketching out
and I have a family somewhere…
the weather’s been so nice that I really want to play golf- but that will have to wait for florida…..
and guess what, it’s 11:30.

so I had to go to daniel galvin to get some knitting done- lots of interest, especially as it is cashmere. Nice alfie was properly polite and acting interested. so when are people going to wake up and realize kniting is chic.
still resizing photos, figuring out sidebars ad nauseum
Is it fun yet?
