DIY (Done It! YES!)

I've always wanted a swift. I usually end up looping my skeins, either around the knobs on my chest of drawers or the legs of an upturned chair. Neither are that great really....

Konnex are quite fab aren't they?...DH has promised to make a wooden one now lol!

This the progress of Mams cardy. I managed to get the fronts done but i'm definitely not going to have enough yarn for the sleeves - bugger! I have one 50g ball left and haven't started the bands yet.
I've decided to do the bands with the remaining ball and think of something to do with the sleeves...they are going to be very very short and Mam will have a lovely waistcoat cum gilet type of thing (hopefully).

And here's how a Doily becomes a hotpad/scrubbie and a little more useful than a Doily...I got the inspiration from frustration (I couldn't work out the origami hotpad for the life of me, now I sort of have one.)

Can I do it? well i'll give it a go...;)

(ok it's not) Friday Foto Feature

I know it's not friday but i'm not going to be around tomorrow and didn't want to miss week 2!

This was taken at Damflask Resevoir...not bad for a phone pic. This place is a gem, hidden away in the peak district of South Yorkshire. It has everything from meadow to woodland - I love this place and it's 5 mile walk around the actual resevoir. 
The other end of the resevoir looks like this...

This is the view of the fields on the 'peak'...

So 3 for the price of 1 but I just felt the need to show a little insight ;)

Slow Progress...TdeF KAL...

Well, that's the biggest piece finished...and that's it so far, IT'S TOO BLOOMIN HOT!!!!
I'll get cracking on one of the fronts tomorrow - I will, I Will, I WILL! (kicks ones self up the arse *wink*)

Friday Foto Feature

I chose this photo because as a child I was scared whitless by it! but now I can see it's beauty (and appreciate it - I feels it represents me and how i've grown).
It's in the heart of one of my 'chill out' places Newmiller Dam....which will feature a fair bit in the Friday Foto Feature
