Still blogging

I'm still around and haven't given up blogging after 2 or 3 posts. But like the diary I started keeping I've been a little lax in recording my ramblings this past week.
I had a bit of a yukky day yesterday. I had the great joy of having a lumber puncture yippeee. I have to say it was much better than the one I had 20 years ago but still was not a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. So today I've been resting and apart from spending way to much time on a tetris game I'm not feeling too bad.
I finished my hat and scarf on Monday I'm really pleased with them. Now I've just got to decipher my notes and write up the patterns. The scarf will be pretty easy to compile but the hat pattern seems to be written in some ancient form of hieroglyphics and might be a little trickier.

Eddie Izzard

Eddie Izzard is fabulous. I'm loving the new DVD

Freezing toes

I managed to get to the stall for a few hours today but boy was it cold. The car said it was -10 degrees. The views driving over to Clitheroe were stunningly beautiful and the roads were mainly clear. My feet however got so cold despite all the layers and the plastic bags I had on each foot. The pain was terrible. It really made me think. I'm relatively young (ish) I had lots of layers on and I was still suffering. Anita on the cooked meat stall recommended 'thousand mile' socks. They are about £16 a pair but she said her feet were toasty warm. Tonight involves an internet search for socks.
I left the stall early so I could go to Asda and get home again before darkness started to fall and the temperature dropped.
Asda car park was terrible so I stocked up for ages (lots of Ovaltine and mini marshmallows) and then I don't have to go near there before next week.
I have been getting a lot of knitting done during this cold snap. Mainly samples for the stall but I seem to be getting through lots of work. Tonight I'm working on a hot waterbottle cover in Lanashire wool. Plus I will be enjoying my brand new Eddie Izzard DVD 'Stripped' which I sneaked in with the shopping today. I was going to treat myself before Christmas but the kids told me to hang on for Christmas day unfortunately they forgot about it and Eddie wasn't in my stocking on Christmas morning boo hoo.

I just had to post the embarrassing photo which my two girls will complain about.
Aren't they angels????
Mums are SOOOOOO embarrassing.

Still playing

Well I've put links from my web site and Ravelry which seem to be working.
I've spent two hours resizing photos and messing with fonts and so far I haven't crashed anything.... hurrah.
Next job is to up load some photos of Katie our glamorous snow person.

testing testing

Well I've finally set up a blog spot.
Will I know what to do with it??
Will I keep it going or forget to post after a few days?
Who knows but we shall see.
Now got to try and work out how to upload photos.
