There's a distinct lack of knitting going on

..'cuz there's been too much else happening recently that had to take priority. I'm getting itchy fingers. We have friends coming round tonight but I MUST knit for at least a few rows!

In the meantime, I've just re-discovered the jokes on Penguin biscuit bars. (BTW have you tried Asda's version of these called Puffins in the triple chocolate variety? Just heavenly. Good enough for a supermarket trip even when there are no other groceries needed!)

Anyway here's today's Penguin joke:
Q: What did the policeman say to his stomach?
A: You're under a vest!
Ok it may be an old one, but it made me smile. Small things, small minds, and all that.. ;-)

I did receive a small parcel from the postie whilst dashing out of the house to work this morning. I hurriedly ripped it open and found inside the 2 balls of Filatura di Crosa variegated mohair that I bought from
ebay last week. Looks quite lovely. I'm hoping to make a scarf type affair with it, after playing around with different stitches to see which looks best. It's been years since I used any mohair - we'll soon see if it still tickles my nose as much as it used to!

I've also been browsing around for more inspiration (as if I need more projects on my wish list!) and found that Berroco have got some great free patterns, such as these:

Rachel - faggoting stitch cardigan:


Paulina - sleeveless top with bias ribs and centre cable:


And for my daughters:
Bethany - lacy cotton cardigan:


Lace Skirt:


These are all on my to-do list now. Ho-hum. I guess that's what happens when I have a break from knitting - I just think about it constantly instead!

I've got the triple chocolate ones, but my favourites are the jaffa orange. I get quite possessive about those!
