Some FO's to show

My Noro socks, finished in the car so a FO photo taken in the car :) These were a mindless knit, though they were my first toe-up socks, and I did learn therefore a different heel also (which I'm not happy with, but they're done). These socks are more like cousins colourwise than siblings, but I do like them.

A cowl knitted in 8ply stash wool, knitted for a friend's birthday 2 days before, blocked the night before, just dry in time to give it to her. Photo taken before blocking, hence the curliness :)

An Ishbel shawl, knitted as a gift for another friend because she saw me winding the wool into a ball and seemed to really like it :)

And finally a FO that I can't take credit for ...

Confession time

Well, my personal challenge didn't go well. I wrote out that list of things to do... Then Hubby came home and we watched tv.

So I tried again last night!

* Fold 27 million clean loads of washing: not done

* Take dirty washing out to the laundry: DONE

* Clean the kitchen: DONE

* Finish knitting a girly hat for a friend: DONE

So my reward for myself didn't happen. But I did get some stuff done anyway.

Things I would like to achieve tonight

I'm writing this list to (in some way) keep myself accountable .... no that's too uninspiring.
Let's call it ... to challenge myself!

Tonight I would like to:
* Fold 27 million clean loads of washing (ok maybe not 27 million, let's say all the washing in Mt Foldmore which is currently geographically found on my lounge)
* Take dirty washing out to the laundry
* Clean the kitchen
* Finish knitting a girly hat for a friend

Ok. Now if I achieve all of those things, I shall reward myself with .... hmm .... any suggestions? Some yarny goodness? This lovely pattern from Ravelry ?

I'll let you know how I went :)

Do you ever...

Turn on your computer (or iPhone, or in-my-dreams-iPad) to do one particular thing, and then suddenly half an hour or an hour has gone past... And you still haven't done the thing you logged on to do?

Mmm. Me too.

Have been knitting hats this long wknd, it feels like hat weather is coming and kids hats are such a good way to shop the stash and use up part balls and leftovers.

Apart from that, I've been doing this

And attempting to teach a 3yo to do this

While being told 'mummy, I know how to do it. Can I knit [brother] a blanket?'
Yes honey. Of course you can.
I think we'll leave the knitting lesson for another year or so.

And also doing this
