As you can see I have finally finished my first glove, and rather than let SGS (second glove syndrome) get a hold I have already started on the second one.

Its been perfect photo weather today, not too bright, but not too cloudy so I took the opportunity to photograph my finished KnittyDirtyGirl yarn.

Many of you left comments on my last post (thankyou!) and in response to what is it going to be when it grows up, since I've only got 100g (4oz)to play with I've been thinking a multi-directional diagonal scarf would probably be the best idea.
I've found a pattern on the web, and I've saved it and read through it, but it doesn't really make any sense, I'm going to have to cast-on and have a go, and see what happens.


My copy of the new Winter Vogue arrived this morning, and there are quite a few patterns I could see myself knitting, usually there is at least one but this time there are at least 4 I really like. I absolutely love Norah Gaughan's muti-directional cabled shrug....again I'm going to have to try knitting a cabled pentagon before making any firm plans because it looks a bit complicated. Infact since I'm on a yarn diet I can forget any plans to buy anything new, oh the torment! Feel my pain...I'll just have to subdue myself with some more spinning.

I've also been working on a banner for my blog, I went off to read up on blogger how to do it, and it looks a bit scary, if anyone knows of a simple idiots guide to doing it on beta blogger please direct me!

THAT YARN IS DELICIOUS!!! Jo, it's so pretty! Good luck with the multi-directional scarf.
Now, let me ask you this, can you change to either the old blogger or the new one? just maybe get out of the Beta? First, though, go over to Kate's blog, (Astrikke) over in her sidebar stuff she has a tutorial on putting a banner up, have you read that? go check it out, print it off, see what happens....otherwise, "I got no clue"
