Ok, I have recently bought the new Creative Knitting and have decided to knit the Mariposa shawl. I am a chronic non user of reccommended yarns sooo.... I am using stash wool. It is a lovely denim blue colour, Willabaa merino. I am finding that my storage of wool is not very good as I am spit splicing rather often as I start each ball. Bloody moths.
In 1 week I have knitted the first pattern and am now doing the first decrease. It is a bother, but I will do this.
By the way, I had a gross out moment 2 weeks ago when I came home and just realised what a mess my home was. I had found several months earlier a website called flylady.com It is about cleaning and routines. I have bit the bullet and have haphazardly been following her advice. Shine your sink! Put your shoes on first thing! Anything can be done in 15mins! The emails are a bother at times but that is where the delete button is handy. I have also lost 7kilos since starting Flylady. Go figure.
Off to do farm work Bye.
