Framing and Knitting

Top of my to do list for today was to go to the framers and pick up Silkwood Manor, I'm really pleased with how it turned out.

As it was the knitting circle last week I thought I'd share some progress photo's on my wips. First is my attempt at a Quaker pinball from the Tokens of Love book. I'm about half way up my first side.

And here's my current sock in progress, I've reached the heel on this one. This is the second sock so progress is a bit slower LOL

Nifty pinball!
I love the process of knitting but sadly my result have always left much to be desired if I try anything fancy.

That book 'Stitches of Creative Embroidery', such memories. I don't know who had it, maybe a friends mum? but I remember I used to love delving in for a look. I didn't have much embroidery thread so I used to just draw the patterns in felt tips and make paper quilts for my dolls house (age 8).

Thanks for your comment at my blog, you are the 1st UK commenter to reveal yourself so you get the 'undying appreciation' prize (which, sadly, is just my undying appreciation, though if I was rich it would be vast skeins of wool, flowers, organic chocolates and).

I'm dying to know who all the UK people are, I thought there were only 5 who knew about me but the England has the biggest dot of all on that Clustr map.

I hope the sun shines on Leeds all week :0)

The quaker pinball looks interesting, I was just looking at the pattern book for these the other day so I'll look forward to seeing your progress on it :)
