H is for....


My Summer copy of Interweave Knits arrived on a Saturday morning in May, I started browsing sites for RYC Cashcotton to have a look at the colours Saturday night, and Sunday morning I ordered the yarn. I've never really made such a swift decision over a garment before, maybe it was my restlessness at spending the first 5 months of the year making small (what are to me) insignificant items, that spurred me into action, but I am indeed knitting the Aprés Surf Hoodie, the colour is Seafoam, I'm using 3mm addis, and I love this yarn it's so snuggly and soft!

H is also for Heather, we are both doing the City and Guilds course in handknitting, and we also share a birthday, although Heather is younger than me, Heather has also tagged me for the 5 things Meme so here it is:

The Rules Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

1. What I was doing 10 years ago:

I was 28, I'd recently started a new job with LG Phillips Displays in Newport, South Wales, which I really enjoyed, and I continued working there until they closed down in August 2003, which was fine because I was already halfway through my pregnancy, and ready to put my feet up!

2. What 5 things are on on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):
Upload a little fibre to etsy (done)
Update the blog (done)
Finish my C & G homework
Do some design drawings for my first C & G garment (this has been on the to do list for quite some time)
Clean the car (this has been on my list for a couple of weeks!)

3. Snacks I enjoy:
this is easy, mini jammy dodger biscuits, milk chocolate (buttons are the current favourite), iced gems, strawberry pencils and mini jelly babies.

4. Things I would do if I was a billionaire:
Buy some nice houses, make sure all my friends had everything they needed, travel the world (with bigsock in a private jet) until it's complete and n the record books, think this is enough to keep me busy!

5. Places I have lived:
St Leonards-on-Sea

I shall tag Marianne,Hedgewitch,Mrs Woman, Kim and anyone else who wants to play along!

Hi Jo... I took your tag:

thanks for the tag!

I already did this one on Earth and Tree, but I'll think up some more for my Hedgewitch blog :-)

Heather said...

Iced gems, yum :-)

Good luck with the C&G project, I am drowing in a sea of graph paper and glue today, trying to draw out mine.

I did my meme! And I love that hoodie. That pattern caught my eye when I got my issue, too. But I'm not knitting anything for myself until I get back to normal. :/ I can't wait to see how yours turns out!

Marianne said...

The hoodie IS a fabulous pattern and I actually started purring when I saw that Seafoam colour, :^), it's GORgeous!
Aye... that meme... I think this is maybe the third time to be tagged... you know me, pathetic blogger... but we'll see. We've been having high winds for several days, getting online and staying there has been very spotty. Hopefully they'll die down as they're driving me crazy now.

milk chocolate 'buttons'? mini jammy dodger biscuits? iced gems? strawberry pencils? mini jelly babies? perhaps you should take photos of these little goodies so those of us NOT in 'the know' can see what they look like at least..

The hoodie is coming along beautifully.

It sounds as good as it looks.
