I have had some Princess pictures sitting around doing nothing for a while now, I really should share. I also dragged out the Unst stole and almost did some knitting on it.
Trying to get a good photo of the Princess is turning into a chore all of its own.
I have also joined two more yahoo groups. One is the 88 snowflakes group, 88 crochet snowflakes in a year. I joined last month and have done 8 already, January's that is. I am already falling way behind, I try to do 3 a week, but haven't managed that for a few weeks now. One is blocked the rest are in need.
I also joined a cross stitch group, Wannietta is doing the mystery x cross stitch from Chatelaine, and it is gorgeous so far, so I decided to go ahead and join too, I got the charts, I got the fabric, I just can't decide whether to get the thread kit or not, it is pricey, and I do already have most of the DMC colours, but the threads with the kit are some pretty looking things. That said I don't cross stitch much anymore, and I can't tell you how many unfinished projects I have waiting in the wings for some attention. I started one at christmas, didn't get far, bought magazine's with stuff I want to do, but so far, not much has been stitched.
In further knitting news....
I tried shadow knitting.
I do have a side view piccie of that but for some reason blogger just won't get the photo I want, it comes up with the original where all the mess on my stove can be seen, yukk!.
I will get another later and try to post it.
I also finally finished my hand spun fingerless gloves. I will post a picture later maybe, I also finished Elizabeth's socks in time for her birthday.
I also have a passion for jigsaw puzzles. After finishing a 1000 piece that consisted of an awful lot of pink and yellow, it was Disney Princess's, I decided to go for the shaped puzzle again, Katherine in her infinite wisdom decided a year ago that the puzzle I had spent hours, days on, should in fact all be back in it's original single piece form. I put it away, and now I want to do it again, now that Katherine is a bit older and not so willing to destroy many many hours worth of work.
I haven't got very far.
