Painted Madness is DONE and sad news.....

Here they are just finished. 10.30pm on Sat 14th april.

I am glad now that I am out of the Madness. Yesterday afternoon I received a call that my Dear Old Dad had died. Quite a shock.

Story is he had spent the moring cutting wood, came home for lunch and was heading out to the post office and to continue more wood cutting but didn't make it past the back gate.

He went the way he wanted. With his boots on and quick.

Love you Dad, miss you allways. At least you are now with Mum.

Now I just need this baby to stay put for at least next week.

The end of Sock Madness for me (this time)

Here is where I got up to in round 3 of sockmadness (1st pic) then I went and checked and lo and behold I was out. Three Cheers to Laurie in Maine. She did me in in record time.

The 2nd photo is where I am up to as of today. They are cuffed socks very nice. Once again using TeAwa Wools of NZ in soft spun mohair (78% mohair) on 2.75mm needles. I think these will be birthday socks for my sister.

The 3rd and 4th photos are of the latest knitting for the presumed daughter due 30th April. The yarn is heirloom Jigsaw and the one ball did the cardi and allmost the booties. The cardi pattern is the short-rows sweater that was on the knitlist years ago. The booties are from the same list.

If you would like the address of where to find the patterns let me know.

37 weeks and the count down is ON.
