Ooh Betty...

My good friend and fellow knitter Linda came round last night and brought the beret I made her so I could take some pictures for this blog. It is from the Hats, Gloves, Scarves book by Louisa Harding and was ever so easy to make.

We got Stripe to model it - he wasn't impressed. What an affront to his dignity. Serve me right if he does a whoopsie somewhere he shouldn't.

Gosh! Been away a while...

But I have done a lot of knitting, your honour.

I finished the baby blankie for my friend Is whose little arrival is imminent now.

I do hope she likes it and more importantly, baby does too.

Roscoe was due on 15 April and hasn't popped out yet so we are all waiting with baited breath for news this week.

I also made a gorgeous (though I say it myself) skinny scarf for myself using the Lion Brand Fancy Fur yarn and Boye needles Bev bought for me in New York.

I really enjoyed knitting with it - there are little tufts of chenille (like tassels) that pop out on the right side of the knitting (with a bit of persuasion from my needles and fingers).

And there's still a ball left over to make a trim for a bag or something (should I be so inclined).

My other news is that my very own Bolton Knitting Noras were the featured knitting group of the month in the May edition of Simply Knitting.

Fame at last except the stupid twits got my name wrong though - Sarah Edwards indeed...
