Welcome everyone to the first yop weekly post to the new blog. I’ve been thinking of moving to wordpress for sometime and decided to take the plunge during the week and apart from some tweaking on setting up the blog I’m really happy with the outcome. I hope you will follow me here now. Button on the right allows for following by email and I’m looking into other options for that as I’m not sure what is available.
Whats been happening here, well James had his quiz yesterday in Dublin, I was saved a drive in the city as a bus was gotten last-minute so we could sit back and enjoy the day. Out of the 50 teams in his category they came a very respectful 8th and did a wonderful job representing themselves and their school. They enjoyed the experience no end.
Knitting wise I’ve done very little as most days and evenings were spent in setting up the blog.
I did finish the Hermione Hearts Ron beanie and in case you missed the post on Friday here’s a peek at it
I did get a couple or rows done on the Basic Beanie, not much but a few.
The dishcloth group I was in two years ago has started up again with themed monthly knits. I don’t know how I missed it starting up again and only saw it the other day so I’m a couple of months behind. My intention is to catch up. I’m hoping to make gift baskets of 6 or so of the cloths for Christmas as those they get gifted to have told me how much they love getting them. I’m using a mixture of King Cole Bamboo Cotton, this is for my mum as she has a preference for this yarn in her cloths and I have some Rico cotton in an aran weight.
That’s it all for this week, the above two projects is likely what I’ll be working on this week and I’ve moved and updated my list which has its own page at the top of blog.
