Not much knitting to report

Feeling a little better, starting to acknowledge that Christmas is a week today.

Not much knitting to report, just an inch on this, two inches on that.
I have however added a clock and a weather pixie so I have kept my hand in with the blog.

Did I ever tell you I have frogged and totally sidelined Bay from Rowan 36? I couldn't be bothered swapping needles sizes every two rows so I just went for what I thought was a good needle size and stuck to it.
Now, I am not a small woman, but the resulting fabric (all six inches in length of it) would have fitted Santa Claus better; it has been chopped. Not really frogged, just sitting there. And also, I was doing my stripes in self coloured KSH and toning KS Spray, the stripe definition was lost. I did actually swatch, but in the small scale swatch the change in yarn looked kind of subtle, in the garment sized version it looked verging on the non-existent.
Oh well, plenty more fish in the sea.

I Like your clock - I'm to tempted to be a copycat - yet again!! But I'm resisting. Where do you find these things? To be more precise, is there a 'bloggers wensite' that has bits'n'pieces like this, and Heather's snow, or do you just copy them from another blog??

I HAVE tried Googling, but didn't get the result I was after....

GLad to hear you're feeling better - especially as you have you wee trip to look forward to!

I just copied the clock and pixie from other websites.
I know, I'd love that to, a blogger's resource centre where you could get all this type of thing.
Get back to your assignment missus! x K

I admit it - I'm a copycat!

Oh thats a shame - I had no idea Bay was done on two differnt needle sizes until you mentioned it and I re-read the pattern. What a hassle that must be. What are you going to do with the yarn instead?

Hi folks,
Carol- I might try River one of these days, but for now I'll just stash the yarn I think! You never know...
