Got a new Camera !

Finally got a new Camera! Now I can show off the Ribbon Twist Cardi I've been knitting (and frogging and Knitting and frogging and Knitting). It is knit in the round, separating for armholes, back and sides. There is a loopy design at the bottom and on the cuffs of the sleeves (once I get round to doing those!).My purchase was in the John Lewis sale - a bargain at only £3 a ball.I'm hoping there are some leftovers , enough for a scarf or hat.
My Crochet scarf is almost done too - hooray, just a few more embellishments and a bit of blocking and it should be ready. Pictures a bit fuzzy - still getting used to new Camera.
Then I'm off to order the Stitch and Bitch Happy Hookers (how I LOOOVVEE that title).
I was at K1yarns on Thursday - got some wonderful hand-dyed yarn and some Twilleys Freedom wool. The Hand-dyed is incredibly soft and both yarns are going to become some nice cozee cushion covers. We had a nice little Burns Supper with a vegetarian Haggis (Pulses, beans and spices instead of Offal). Never got round to doing the Toast to a Haggis, although Junior has been practising some Scots Poem at school. HWWM&S was at some Burns supper in London (!) with his work collegues, something to do with the Whisky Society. Burns would have approved! Reading the Herald today , the funeral of Abbe Pierre was reported, Frances champion for the Homeless. Those in high office mingled with the humble at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.
"If there is another world, he lives in bliss, If there is none, he made the best of this" Robert Burns.

It stands for He Who Wears Marks and Spencers ! Bit of plagiarism - Knit and Tonic refers to her hubby as He Who Wore Versace.
