Simple things...

...entertain a girl with a cold! Who knew it could be so much fun to see your blog title spelt out in pictures of letters :o)

I think Lixie mentioned this on her recent podcast but it was when I saw it in action on Terrie's blog that I got how cool it is.

As my brain is slightly addled by this evil infection I am capable of knitting only straightforward things this weekend. Dreamcatcher's lovely hat pattern is just the ticket:Thanks again Dreamcatcher for sharing this pattern, it's racing along and the other half is anticipating a warm bonce soon :o)

I've managed to finish up my second Christmas gift too:
Pattern: My So Called Scarf
Yarn: Rowan Plaid - Moonwave, 2 skeins
Needles: 8mm Wooden Straights

Started: 14 October 2007
Finished: 27 October 2007
Notes: Is this the single most knit scarf after plain garter stitch? There are currently 757 of these logged as projects on Ravelry with a further 921 queued. That many knitters can't be wrong! I love it and will surely make more. This yarn is great too - super warm mix of merino, alpaca and acrylic - why oh why was it discontinued? I suppose I should be grateful as I've gathered up some bargain lots because it has been.

Now someone is showing me how I should be getting in some more sofa time,
powerless to argue I'm off.Hope the knitting has been good for you this weekend, lots of love

I think that there must be colds going through blogland at the moment, I hope you feel better soon. The scarf is lovely in that yarn. I havn't used it before.

It's a great scarf pattern - not sure if I've got it in my Ravelry queue but it is in my mental queue AND I even have yarn for it!

Yup, I've come across the Flickr letters - they're great, aren't they!

So you've been browsing the free patterns on Ravelry as well! I've also got the So Called Scarf on my wish list (as well as a squillion others). Have you seen the Criss Cross scarf? I've absolutely got to knit that one....

I love the scarf. It looks very snuggly. I hope your cold is a bit better.

Janey said...

I love that scarf, 2 things done for Christmas already? You're very organised!

Gorgeous cat, hope you both managed to snuggle down on the couch!

Totally agree about Rowan Plaid - I've got an old FO in that yarn that I've been meaning to post, but never get the chance to because it seems to be in constant wear during daylight hours :) The tweediness is lovely with the So-Called Scarf.

Ooh the scarf looks lovely and very cosy, Plaid is a perfect yarn for it :-)
