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