I am officially the worst blogger ever!!! How long has it been people?? Way too long and there's just been so much going on in that time. We've had a new addition to our family (Stanley the Pug), moved to Aviemore (I still seem to spend most of my time on that flaming ferry though) and started acting as an Avon Rep (Ding Dong!!).
As far as knitting goes, it's been all toys. I've been knitting up a ton of miniature Christmas stockings which I am hoping to sell at a local Christmas Fayre. Here's a piccie of them:
They were created by adapting a Jean Greenhowe pattern and I really enjoy knitting them. They are really easy to customise and I can easily knit up a couple a day.
I also knitted a larger Christmas Stocking but not sure what I am going to do with this one:
It is also from a Jean Greenhowe pattern.
Another designer whose patterns I am using are Raynor Gellatys of www.jellybum.co.uk. These patterns are cute, easy and fast to knit up and here's an example of the penguin:
On the audiobook side I have left and returned to Audible in the time I have been remiss in my blogging. I just couldn't stay away!! I have recently finished another Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child title called The Ice Limit, narrated by Scott Brick. As always a brilliant story and fantastic narration but unusually, I found the ending a tad disappointing but I can't quite articulate why.
And yet another addition to my free time is my new Kindle 3G. I received it as an early birthday/Christmas present from my parents and it is fab!!! I have the 3gs and WiFi version and it's such a great piece of equipment. Not only have I finished reading a number of titles (which I will go into in more detail at a later date) but I also have all my knitting patterns on it in pdf format and my audiobooks which is very cool.
I think that's enough of an update for now :o) More in a few days. Tata.
