Had a lovely afternoon at Tramwayknits yesterday , and it spurned me on to greater things! After a conversation with the lovely Kathleen last week ,I decided to set up a group on Ravelry - the knitting website. A group for those of us who love Liliths fabulous yarns and fibres, also known as Old Maiden Aunt!
Lilith has a wonderful website which I am forever perusing , and occasionally buying from (its my story and I'm sticking to it! lol) , as well as a wonderful studio in the little weaving village of West Kilbride . She also does dyeing workshops , which I hope to attend one of these days !
At present I am signed up for a Cookie A sock Knit-a-long on Ravelry , organised by the lovely Theresa, and several of my socks will be done in OMA yarn, its so lovely, and the colours are so pleasing to the eye , and it feels fabulous . Cookie A , for those not in the know , is a fabulous knitwear designer who designs the most gorgeous sock patterns, several of these patterns are available free on Knitty.com. At the end of this month (in the UK anyway!), her new sock pattern book comes out , and the Sock Knit-along starts in earnest. For present, we are knitting some of her available designs , and showing off our socks on the group forum .
Yesterday at Tramwayknits, Patsy asked to see my new Marlene socks, however I was wearing them , so had to put my feet up on the table to show them off properly . A couple of guys at the next table look horrified, and hid behind their Sunday Papers. Probably thought we had escaped from the asylum! Thank goodness nobody stroked them! hehehe!
Took DS1 and 2 to the Grandparents today, its a strange thing that kids can drive you mad , and yet when they are gone you miss them like crazy! Especially when they say the cutest things . On the way to their grandparents this song, one of my favourites by Paul Weller , was on the radio , hence the todays title, it says it all really!
