WOOLLIE - BIRTHDAY
It was my birthday on Friday - another year has passed! Having to go to work was a pain (apart from the beautiful bouquet of flowers from my colleagues and the numerous renditions of Happy Birthday!) but after work things picked up - dinner with friends in the pub! I think that my birthday really should have been Saturday as I had a lot of fun! Knitting group in Newburgh complete with birthday cake and then dinner at my friends house - Allyson, always makes me a cake, and this year she outdid herself! Chocolate supreme!!
I got a lot of woollie related gifts - Andrea created a whole host of woollie goodness - black forest gateau, cupcake, felted pear, apple and orange and a little rat a la Ratatouille! I was also lucky enough to get a 2 year subscription to Marie Claire Idees!! Thank you all my kind friends! Your friendship is much appreicated! (PS Eva - the subscription doesn't start till February so the Christmas edition would still be gratefully appreciated!!)
WOOLLIE - CREATIONS
I have finally finished the cloud! I decided that even a Scottish baby could get depressed lying under a cloud every night, even if it has a silver lining. So I knitted some yellow lopi and felted it in the washing machine, I started to make a sun to go with the cloud. I cut some thin strips and sewed them together round a pipe-cleaner to make flexible rays of sunlight (although I have to admit they looked a little more like french fries!!) I finally attached the sun to the cloud and I am finally happy with it!
Oh - and I also added to my yarn stash at Twist Fibre Craft yesterday - 3 balls from the sale bin - loved the autumn colours!
