Work in progress wednesday - Tackling goals


Hello Wednesday.
A very late one from me today, I am still working on my hitchhiker not made a lot of progress though, as there is so much happening in other parts of my life this week, what with close family birthdays, a school trip away and the jubilee weekend, I am running around like a headless chicken, because as usual i Leave everything to the last minute *sigh*

Yarn is one of my hand-dyed Fantasy Yarns

 I have been buying a lot of Mint lately, and I can’t seem to find a nice clutch bag, so I have decided to tackle one of my 2012 goals, and design my first ever “knitted” item *gulp*

I have decided to go with a nice cotton yarn, as it’s durable and washable, and I will line the inside, so that the cotton retains its memory.
 
So far I have worked out the dimensions, and done a few stitch swatches, of which I have decided on the moss stitch, because it makes a nice sturdy fabric and it’s pretty.

I am just waiting on delivery of more mint cotton yarn, and some more 3mm knit pro needles {i snapped my last pair} so I can get started - feel quite excited!!

Fifty Shades DarkerReading wise, I am 92% of the way through fifty shades darker; I am really enjoying the somewhat cheesy but intense love story between the characters, and I will be moving on to the last book in this trilogy.

Well it’s my eldest birthday tomorrow, and I still have balloons to blow up so I shall say goodnight!:D
