Cloth Finally Completed

Hip hip Hurray! I have finished the cloth for the swap! I thought I was never going to get there - pictures in a week or so when it has arrived at it's destination in Colorado. If I do it again, it won't be for quite some time. I had to take back another two rows when I sat and came to it this evening. These are the two rows that I did this morning...... Never mind, all done now.

Back to Revontuli in a bit. Or shall I do the bag, perhaps the bag and get that finsihed. That will give me a bit of a break from lace and so get me prepared for the Mystery Shawl KAL that I will hopefully be starting next Saturday or Sunday. I have yet to wind the yarn up for that. This week I also want to prepare and dye yarn to do another bag. The bag is to be completed for the end of July. A realistic goal, who am I kidding? I shall be knitting my fingers to the bone to do this and keep up with the Mystery KAL. At teh moment I have the option of changing my mind about the bag and making something smaller or less time consuming.

I took the cupcakes down to Fobbles this morning. On the Lady Grey ones, I put a tiny sprinkle of disco violet dust (my favourite dust) and put three small sugar butterflies on each. They looked quite pretty. Bev liked the look of them. I hope they taste good and went down well. I hope my worries are misplaced!

Mary-Jane has been in fine form. She got very tired this afternoon. Nest building and having primarily Daddy on the floor playing with he was order of the afternoon.

I had to Google "disco violet dust". While I am not surprised that it's a legitimate baking ingredient, I admit that would make an awesome band name.

Hello! I've been reading your blog for a while (I can't for the life of me remember how I found it) and think it's time I delurked and told you how much I enjoy your posts. I too am a Cumbrian off-comer who likes knitting and has a toddler, so your blog really strikes a chord. Sorry for waiting so long to say hello!
