you know when you have finally got all comfy in bed and its nice just to lay there comfy and relaxed that was me at 6am, then woodie (black labrador) started to bark woodie NEVER barks unless something is wrong, I was out of bed, dressed (kind off one sock on and jumper on inside out) and into the garden in about 10secs flat, richards Call ducks had decided that they wanted to run around in the garden and not in there pen and were walking in front of woodies kennel blooming things.

its now 09:13 and I am trully utterly tired out, but on a good note I have got lots of knitting done

East Yorkshire is covered in snow, I love how it makes everything look so beautiful from the trees to the roof tops, and the silence that is brings I love nothing more than getting wrapped up and walking the dogs early in morning nothing around and soo quiet.

Current work in progress

these are what I am knitting at the moment as you will tell from the posts before I have had trouble with the cables, finally got the hang of them and I hope soon they will be armwarmers

the pattern is from Knitty Spring 2007 and are called dashing, they have been frustrating but now I am glad I carried on with them and they are coming along nicely

I might even knit myself a pair of these once I have finished these


Note to self DO NOT EAT NEAR KNITTING just spilt sweet and sour sauce on them now need to wash it gently still on the needles..........

various pictures


seem to have cable down now, *fingers crossed* armwarmers are now coming along nicely so might be a chance they will be finished for crimbo and not buried in my "to frog" box!

Found a great and addicting blog makes me want to try crocheting just so I can make the little birds! heres the link dont blame me if you spend hours reading it heehee

getting more used to my camoille tea now have to admit it does help me sleep even if for the first week it was eewwwwwww

going to go back and snuggle under my blanket and spend the afternoon knitting
