I rather like this blogging lark and just love getting comments. Its just fab being able to share your projects and ideas to anyone who fancies a look. Wonderful invention.
No real knitting news I'm afraid. The sewing-up on Iris is going slowly slowly, sort of on a 2 steps forward 1 back basis. If it doesn't look right, I have to redo it, and redo it, till I'm happy with it. I'm such a perfectionist but after spending hours knitting something I want to make sure it doesn't get ruined at the last stage. Also, my DH inspects all my finishing too - so has to pass his test as well. If we're both happy, it all tickety boo. If not, back to the drawing board. I constantly try it on to make sure it fits well and all the seams look right. I'm sure I'll get there eventually.....
I finished my Bright Socks and thought I'd try a toe-up sock and hunted around till I found a pattern I liked. Of course, then I realised I need 5 DPN's and I only have 4 as 1 went walkabouts and no matter where I look it refuses to be found. Isn't it always the way? Most annoying.
So today we have a pic of me in Egypt last month wearing my Martini poncho in Cotton Braid. No one told me how cool it could get in the evenings and boy was I glad I'd made it to bring with me on holiday. Knitting with Cotton Braid is amazing, it feel just like cotton wool. I love it.
And just to prove I was actually in Egypt here's a pic of the Sphinx I took and one my DH took of me. We fly to Cairo for the day and it was just amazing. The Egyptian museum was awesome. I could happily have spent days there.
