I am slowly knitting away at my green shrug, I've decided to get this finished before starting on another project. I'm a bit worried actually as I didn't do a gauge, I'm just too darn impatient. This is probably going to the item that will make me understand how important it is to do a gauge sample! I'm definitely going to do them in future, just hope that I get away with it this time. It looks just like a long sleeve at the moment, which I guess that it is actually! Once I have finished this part then I have to pick up and knit on circulars which I'm pretty nervous about doing, I would hate to muck it all up. I'm enjoying knitting this as it's a pretty simple pattern, which means that I can also watch telly at the same time with only a small amount of backtracking involved.

Knitting is great for helping me to stay awake, my eyes were starting to droop on Fri night while Julian and I were watching a DVD, so picked up the needles and managed to stay awake for the whole film. Unlike Julian who snored his way through most of the film, I did offer him some knitting, but he wasn't interested!!! Shame really I can just picture us both sitting there knitting away...................

So I am pleased to report that no bread passed my lips yesterday!!!! Unfortunately, I seem to have swapped bread for chocolate biscuits and I'm pretty sure that this is not going to get me into my dress for the summer! Note to self....must try harder (blimey sounds like my old school reports)! X

I wish I could knit!!!! I completed my first project yesterday (for all intents and purposed a small rectangle) but felt inordinately pleased with myself. Wil just have to keep on practising.

Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
