Knitting For Scrapbookers

It's so wet and dark here today I feel I should be writing my Christmas List. And the boiler is broken again. I've been out and about all morning; but now that I'm home, it's a toss up between a few star-jumps and some very fast knitting to keep me warm:


Of course the knitting was going to win. Especially as I've taken a real fancy to this book since I opened it up and saw this:


Now that's come from the kind of knitter a scrapbooker would like to meet.

Today I'm Loving...the fact that I've got another week to get ready for Fathers Day. Is this right? The Tall One and The Small One are all primed and ready, their presents picked, their cards chosen for this weekend. Seems I might have misled them. I suppose I'm the one who has to break it to their Dad too. Hmm.

I love the colors for your knitting project! Funny that you are cold - it was 110 degrees (43 c) here in Arizona yesterday. Summer is definitely here!

Totally yummy colors. It looks like father's day coincides in the US and UK! Also with the start of the World Cup (or a few days later). My knitting friends definitely prefer to knit in the winter.

It's still fairly summery here...so no knitting at present...somehow it does always seem like a cold weather activity!!

I felt the urge to start knitting again this winter but couldn't find any patterns I liked. Seems knitting shops are thin on the ground round here! That looks like a lovely book though, make sure we see you modelling the finished garment.

Gorgeous colours you're knitting with. Ooops over Father's Day. Everyone will be so disappointed at having to wait!

Amy, at Over At Our Place, has blogged a post about our online friendships. I was only thinking something similar the other day. I do believe that 'Friends come into your life for a reason, a season or forever' (as somebody said) and that it is OK to have groups of friends who never meet. My definition of a friend is someone you can share worries and triumphs with, someone who will happy for your success and sad for your trials. I guess that definitely makes us friends and I'm proud to say that. I'm going to go and post a copy of this on all the blogs I follow. Thanks for being a friend.
