Not too bad, a good picture of varying texture anyway.

And once again I'm reminded how fortunate I am to live where I do.

A finish and a revelation.

Better late the never! This is for my neice, the colours aren't true to life on this photo but you get the idea. It's a less the perfect piece, but I'm pleased it is done. The main bits of knitting were done before I's arrival but the making up is always the bit I find difficult. I have had a revelation though. Making up isnt actually as difficult as I make it, it is really actually fairly simple.

At knitting this week I was shown a different way to pick up stitches, rather then my made up hope for the best way, and it is SOOOOO much easier! If I pick up the second stitch in rather then the end stitch it is neater, easier and quicker. So I picked up the last armhole and finally finished. Hurrah.

I'e also discovered that if you want to knit with a baby who doesn't like being put down, then the best thing to do is lie him facedown across your knees. So knitting result this week. Hopefully knitting can get back into the flow.

From bad to worse

Ok so last weeks photo challenge was weak, this weeks is even more poor. I'm just hanging on to the fact I actually did it.

At least I have a possible idea for this coming week.

I have actually taken a few other photos at least this week of things not challenge related. And in other crafty things I've actually managed to do a small amount of knitting and designed this logo for our local slingmeet I was actually really impressed with it, although I actually got the idea from a tattoo design I saw! And speaking of slings my stash is growing. I got a lovely new (well new to me but preloved) sling yesterday. It is the middle one and it is just gorgeous! I love my wraps.
