baby bump knitters....should I worry

Right fellow knitty bloggers time to tell me WHATS GOING ON!!!! Is this some conspiracy, you are all joining forces arent you and trying to push me over the broody edge...your spreading it like some weird net virus.

What on earth am I talking about, BABIES thats what, everywhere I turn in blogland I see cute bumps and lovely baby knits. Our house isnt big enough for another baby is it? Youngest is going to school in august am I just being silly wanting a pink one????? Tell me I dont need to be pregnant do I. HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPPPP

Seriously, so so many babies and babies to be I want to say congrats knitty peeps, enjoy, I miss having a bump to pat and talk to. ;)

And now for something completely different.........

We interupt the usual program to bring you something so random your head may spin. I do apologise but knitting is kinda well not happing but I feel a need to blog.

Saturday was a child free shopping day...a rare occurance and much needed. Having no men folks in tow I took advantage of it and took the time to get fitted for a bra, something I havent done since I was in my teens. Yes I know thats very naughty, even more so now after I had some very shocking news. For as long as I can remember I have worn a 36B so you can imagine my horror to be told that I should be wearing a 30E. Just a little off then perhaps!!!!

New bras are ordered and I look forward to a perky set very soon. So look out world here comes a new me.

Please excuse me as I go have a lie down in a dark room..............

Naughty Naughty lacey

Jadeandchrissy of brightdyes has been a very naughty girl, she has started a lace club and I have been even more naughty and signed up for it and I CANT WAIT!!! It will last three months and once a month I will get a squishy package of yummy lace dyed in a pretty solid or variagated colour just for me....oh and the other members of course ;) I recomend it I really do, her yarn is vey nice and at £36 I think thats a very good deal. Of course what she doesnt realise is sh is doing me a great favour as I have many Victorin Lace Today Projects in mind that I have yet to try.

Unblocked glory

Horah!!!! My first complete shawl...ok its a scarf/shoulder shawl so not huge but it finished and I LOVED making it. It still needs to be blocked but that cant be done until the squids are tucked up snug for the night. I really cant wait to see it turn from scrunchy knit to crisp pattern.

Shawl Request

I was visited by my dad and his wife on wednesday night, and she reqested a shoulder shawl for a gift for a friend, after a little searching she has decided on the flower basket shawl and KOIGU yarn!!!

There is nothing more exciting than a yarny parcel, than one destined to be a gift given with love and affection. The yarn arrived this morning and I am roughly halfway to the finishline, the yarns beautiful and my knitting mojo is back, it seems nothing make me happier than knitting for a loved one.

A very knitty christmas

I was a very lucky knitter this year, my friends were very good to me and my stash increased in the nicest of ways!!! Mum also bought me two kits from Kim Hargreaves, Soul and Shimmer and they are simply stunning!! I have started the soul hat already.
