A Mysterious Object!

Bigsock has been at Mew Mew's Yarn shop in Louisville, Colorado since Labor Day, September 1st, I just had to show you Mew Mew napping on the job, one of my favourite photos of the sock on it's journey so far! I've just had word that it has reached it's new destination....Alaska!!

This week I have been finishing off my Lavender Bags.

And knitting a mysterious object!

Hmmmmmm.......what could it be?

Special thanks to Rosie, she sent me a pompom tool in the first UK Ravelry Swap, and it came in handy while I beavered away on 27 pompoms for this project!

Can you tell what it is yet? I shall reveal all.......soon!

I'm also the lucky recipient of two 'I Love Your Blog' awards! First Victor and also Peri gave me the award on the last post, and if they hadn't been the two that nominated me in the first place, well they'd be up there at the top of the list as I love your blogs too! I had also recieved a reward ealier in September from Angie, I always enjoy reading what you've been upto too Angie, and look on in wonderment as you fit everything in!!

Its really hard to choose blogs to award because I love all the blogs that I visit on a regular basis, but I have picked a few out:

The first one I am giving to Caroline. I've alway found a visit to Caroline's blog brings a little peace and serenity, or just stops you in your tracks and makes you think or laugh!

The second one I am giving to Elsie Dinsmore, the 'Punk Pensioner!' I only found this blog this week, but how could you not love it!

Now according to the rules I think I'm supposed to nominate at least 4 bloggers for the award, but since I think everyone should get one I'm just going to stop there. If I'm a visitor at your blog, you can be sure of one thing, I do love your blog, and consider yourself a recipient of this award!

Pink pompons look amazing but how have you got the patience to make enough for, if I'm not misatken, a tea cosy? Just doing the ones for the poodle bottle cover in one of the Erika Knight books finished me off.

Marianne said...

Holy pompoms! I have no idea what you're making but it sure looks like fun :^D
Your Big Sock is amazing.
Love the lavender bags!

What a sweet, contented kitty on that BIG SOCK of yours!

I have no guesses on the pompom project, but it certainly evokes memories of 10th grade Biology class.

Peri said...

A testicle holder was my first guess - in a kinda body mod style? Go on, admit it, you know I'm right on the button here!

Caroline said...

Thank you that is most kind and thoughtful of you!

I love the cat in the sock pic - seems incredibly well-behaved to me. I wonder what will happen next on its travels.

I love your lavender bags......
And the pom poms remind me of those marshmallowey biscuits with dessicated coconut on you used to be able to buy.......

Good job!!

Love the Big Sock picture and the lavender bags are lovely too. As for the PomPoms - well I think you're knitting a big Raspberry!!

I think it's a.....

No, not fair, as I already know - glad to see the progress being made - that pompom maker must have been a great help.

Sock's looking good too!

Ha ha! Yes it does rather look like a testicle warmer.. might ruin the line of a nice trouser though!

Thank you so very very much for giving me a blog award. It's my first, it's a real honour. As a new blogger, I am a little lost, but slowly finding my way.

People like yourself are so welcoming and fun, it warms my heart and makes me smile. I am enjoying myself.

Thank you so very much and good luck with the fabulous testicle warmers. Even if they're not - you should try them on a few gorgeous models!
regards, elsie
