I rather like this idea of having a natter with some knitting thrown in. Please join in, I will feel very silly nattering to myself.
A rather wonderful thing happened on Wednesday. It turned out it wasn’t my birthday, that is still firmly in October. But the wonderful Claire had decided that my unbirthday was this week and I received a simply marvellous present. Sometimes you receive a gift that is just so perfect it takes your breath away. This one did bring a tear to my eye. It’s so pretty.
This is a needle case, with pretty quilting, and cross stitch and made in my absolute favourite colour and inside
some hand beaded stitch markers. Oh MY! Thank you so much. I love it.
Meantime do any of you have this sort of conversation. Mr E bellowing from downstairs ” What are you doing Cath?” He calls me Cath and that is not my name, but he’s never cottoned onto that one. Beside the point. My reply “Looking up a grave in the Anfield cemetery in Liverpool”. Perfectly natural thing to do. Or later that day ” Cath, what are you doing?” Reply ” Knitting cat’s eyes !” Silly man.
Bagpusses eyes to be precise. Right now he is a cat of many parts. Soon to be united with legs, ears and whiskers.
Meantime the knitting pattern that the Gremlin in the computer ordered has arrived.
with yarn for the one at the top. Personally I am not at all surprised that the Gremlin choose this one. I suppose I could help out with the knitting, but not until I have done the jumper which is next in the queue.
So, what are you up too this weekend? I hope it involves some knitting or sewing or something you love doing with people you care about.
