currently on a WIP-off frenzy, so i can start knitting some new things...
semele for varelle
i MUST finish all of these before starting something new
beet head will be done by today, will put up some blocking snaps. i'm knitting it in rowan fine tweed, which is kind of like the teenager equivalent of wool - gorgeous and bright but it does what it wants and is quite hard to control. i'm sure it will block well but it's a bit hard to knit fairisle with.
semele requires concentration and is slow-going but it's for a lovely person - varelle is my stepsons' grandmother - an incredibly creative and generous woman who is so lovely to me and has made some gorgeous things for me
cocoa has been on the needles since last year and i WILL finish it by sunday night.
swimming-wise, i'm planning to go to squad tonight at charlestown and will be swimming in newcastle harbour tomorrow (part of the sparke-helmore weekend), and cronulla sunday
...update at 2pm... ran out of the grey background yarn for my hat - BOOOOOO!!! luckily more is on the way - early next week hopefully....
