With hindsight, perhaps cotton yarn might have been a wiser choice for a 40+ day, but hey … not knitting at ALL would be a wiser choice for a 40+ day …
Superknitter can knock one of these out in about three hours. I didn’t keep track but it was at least double that long and maybe triple.
I’m not a slow knitter so I’ll claim extra consideration because of the steamy weather. [ but Yvette lives in steamy steamy Queensland so there goes THAT excuse ]
Sirdar Snuggly DK – a little less than 1 x 50gram ball of blue plus remnants of yellow and white
Yvette’s amended BSJ [ not available ]
At this point the hot spell is supposed to last at least until the weekend.
David goes on camp Tuesday to Friday – and I just hope they have aircon. ETA they did
What am I doing while D is away ? Not a bloody clue. If the weather stays like this, not a lot.
David and I won’t be doing anything special tonight – toooo damn hot to go to the fireworks, I’m afraid, but if you are going out, have a great and safe time. Happy New Year folks and drive carefully please! I’d like to see you all back in ’08 :]
ETA Blogger ate a whole bunch of photos today [ January 13 ] so I’ve just spent over an hour putting ’em all back – apologies to those of you who read through Bloglines or some other feed because they’re all going to show up as new posts again
