Off to the U.K. for visiting, theatre going, shopping, art gallery viewing, fish and chip eating and general catching up and seeing what I’ve been missing (if anything). I won’t dwell on a dentist appointment I’ve booked myself in for as it can’t all be fun I suppose.
I couldn’t go without showing you these.
Yes, these are the bottoms of my legs but what I’m really showing you are the temporarily abandoned but finally finished two at a time, toe up socks. I am so in love with them that I never want to wear them.
Do you know what I mean when I say that? If I don’t put them away somewhere safe they might get spoiled/dirty/lost/eaten by a dog. Please say I’m not the only one.
Anyway, here’s another view where I didn’t have to put my legs up in the air whilst holding a camera at a funny angle, as you do.
Just in case you are wondering, I am not a master of intarsia knitting, this is the way the wool knits up. It’s like magic! I’m so chuffed they match although I did have some input into that.
Now that I have finished these, I can cast on for another project free of guilt.
I have been making dog bandanas like a crazy woman for the fund raising efforts of my local Dog Rescue group as mentioned in my last post and I have turned to festive fabric as one does at this time of year, such as these.
Whilst the trusty Stan was modelling for pet accessories in the hope that I would throw a ball for him at the end of it, I happened to get a disturbing photograph of him which revealed he has a much longer tongue than I gave him credit for. It is a rubbish photograph of the bandana but I include it here for your edification.
I’ll be back in a week or so having hopefully replenished my wardrobe, fabric stash, cholesterol count and cultural education.
