And now for the picture part of this quiz (copied from a meme that's going around at the moment)

b. Using only the first page, pick an image
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd’s mosaic maker.

I chose these not really thinking about whether they would go together but I think they do! In fact I've got it as my desktop right now!

Well, thats as much as I can give out right now.... I'm all posted out for today!

long time no see

Hi guys

thought I'd drop anot to say that no, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth.... I'm just a busy girl right now. In fact, i'm at work this very moment trying to get a short post in because I know I just need to update the world!

I've got loads of catching up to do with the UK Swap thing which is just unfortunate since I loved being in last year's swap and just finding being a full participant really hard right now. I was hoping that I'd be able to get into things by the end of July but my assessment has been pushed back by the assessor til August.... so dragging out the assessment means I have less free time again.

I do have a few picture updates though.

I have almost finished the Simply Knitting cabled cardi:

This is scrunched up because I'm trying to knit the rib which goes all the way around the fronts and neck. There is about 290 stitches and I hate rib especially when it's hard going. The ball you see is what I have left of the Fleece Artist Scotian Silk I made the cardi with so I dont think I'm going to have enough to do the sleeve rib. At £16 a hank not only will I have a very expensive sleeve ribbing but the hanks have about 360m so it's a bit overkill! The sleeves are batwing-y so might just see what they look like without or find an alternative to neaten them.... answers in an email please!!! :o)

This is just a closeup of the lacy cable rib which is on the fronts.

This is a new project which I started las week. A crochet cardi from the same Simply Knitting mag i have made the other red cardi from. Unfortunately I have broken my 3.50mm crochet hook so I put a plea bargain on Ravelry to see if anyone has a spare before I buy another.

And here is me when I'm not at work/home/being mum. It's a work night out about 6weeks ago... I'm going to a doctors ball next saturday which should be fun... can't wait to let my hair down just a little bit!

Off to work now it's nearly 9am!
I'll catch up on UK Swap stuff in my next post!
