Knitting. Remember the variegated  yarn I showed in this post? I couldn't get a decent photo of it no matter how I tried. Here you go, I'm a third of the way up the back of a sleeveless sweater. Thanks for the encouragement Julie. :-) I already have the front finished and hope to have completion over the weekend.  I have to say I'm really enjoying this project. Especially the fact that it is chunky yarn and very quick to knit up.
Word Verification!! Personally I don't have a problem with it, not even the new version that seems to be making some people go googly eyed. But, after reading Chookys post here I've adjusted my settings and gotten rid of it. Lets see what happens.
Family. My DD Kaiy has been working for the local brewery for a while now and has been doing lots of training. I find it very hard to believe that someone put her in a managerial position!!! My daughter managing a pub! LOL (Well done sweetheart. I'm very proud of you.)
Quilt shows.  Sigh, my dear baby sister has chosen to get married on the same weekend that the International quilt festival is on at the NEC!!  What am I going to do? The NEC is so convenient, I can do it in a day trip. Harrogate means staying over for at least one night, it's a possibility. Anyone want to meet up? I threw the idea open at home, the other two sisters are pleading poverty and I don't think mum likes the idea of an over nighter. Anyone else got any suggestions for a day out at a quilty, yarny, crafty style exhibition show thing..... later this year? It doesn't have to be a day trip, but something within spitting distance of an airport is good. I could get lost in my own wardrobe!
The End. It's a beautiful warm sunny spring day here and I'm off to knit a few rows on my chunky warm woolly sweater!!  Typical.

Pretty sweater! I don't knit but if I did chunky yarn would appeal to me too :)

Word verification seems easier this week now that most people have turned off the black blob skewing the words.

Congrats to your daughter, and good luck getting someone to join you for quilty fun later this year.

I love your latest knitting project. Who is the lucky recipient? Well done to Kaiy. She is probably pinching herself at times too. It is great that she now has a career under way. Now, about that quilty weekend, do you think anyone would notice if I just ducked over for a couple of weeks. Unfortunately, it is just a tad too far for a weekend. I'm sure you will find a partner in crime. Enjoy your spring weather. We have our fire alight. Autumn has arrived.
