Good heavens woman where have you been?

I thought I was doing better but it appears not. I have been up to things but just not showing them. Here is a round up

Made this which is needed now the frost has arrived this morning . It is knitted and went well I think. Its a lacy pattern which is something I wanted to have a go at, but it is just a scarf. There seems so much more to learn with knitting. For example I fancy having a go at this but it talks about wrapped short rows. There is a link but knitting at the computer is a bit hard. I need something like it ( no bow) for wintry running as I get earache.

Had a birthday (lets not go there) but yes lets because it meant that I was sent pressies, including one from far away.

My blog friend Louise sent me treasure of the utmost deliciousness. I don’t have many friends that would get me craft things for a present yet it is what I yearn for.

One of my friends is a paper crafter and she has encouraged me to dabble a bit in fact we made these at a class recently.

I made her this for her birthday and I love it so much I nearly didn’t give it. I will make myself one next week during half term. Details here

So you see its all go, I ‘m just not very organised and I am not famed for the written bits. More pictures and less writing is what I say. I will go and scrape the frost off the car and head to Harrogate, it would seem that Spanish weather is a distant memory now.

    Try this video on youtube, the nice lady demmos what wrapping a stitch on a short row is...I have never done it...but I learn lots of stitches crochet and knitting from youtube. It looks like a nice pattern and we can't have you having earache. Belated Birthday wishes :) x

  3. Short wrapped rows aren't rocket science! I'm sure you can cope.

  4. Happy birthday. I have knitted for many years, but never bumped into short row wraps, so I avoided any patterns that mentioned it. Turns out that was silly. Have a quick look at the video's and I am positive you will have it worked out

  7. Happy Belated Birthday. Lovely scarf too. By the way have you thought about a calorimetry as a headband? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/calorimetry. Someone has even come up with a crochet variation.
