Work have blocked a ton of sites as of this morning. Twitter is gone (sob) and I can't see any pictures on peoples blogs. They've done something hinky to Flickr. I've no idea how I'm going to keep up with blogs now! I apologise in advance if I don't comment on anyones latest posts, I had them all open today ready to go, and then when I couldn't see the pictures, how could I comment on them!
Still, the only positive thing is Ravelry is still ok. I'd lose my reason if that went! I reckon it's safe enough though, I'm probably the only person in the place using it, so it'll never show up on usage stats. (I hope!)
Right, onto cheerier things.
Some proper pics of my sensational, madly in love with Clapotis.
Did I tell you I freaking love this pattern and yarn? When I let the stitches down it totally changed the whole look of the yarn. Now it looks fiesty, passionate and ready to party.
I am going to rock Alice's communion! The other mothers don't stand a chance. heh.
All I need to do now is think about an outfit to wear with it. I'm thinking nothing too colourful, maybe a cream top & black trousers/skirt? Let me know, I've never been the best colour co-ordinator so all help appreciated.
I thought I'd show you this picture of the back of the Clap.
Doesn't it look like it's been woven on a loom? The way the colours are kind of striped is really cool.
I think it looks just as good on the "wrong" side as on the right one.
Now, onto a new project:
I've cast on for a Flutter Sleeve Cardigan (Ravlink) from IK Spring 08. I'm not really sure why I have, I don't know if this is going to suit my "ample" frame or not. Sure we'll give it a go. I love the yarn, this is Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece that I bought two years ago on my first yarn shopping spree in Florida. The colour is called tea rose and it reminds me of the colour of Meggie's Ashes of Roses dress from The Thorn Birds, if anyone remembers that mini-series. (Richard Chamberlain, sigh)
Not much else to report, really. Oh, I got a ton of cheapy acrylic yarn today in Aldi. I got 8 balls of white DK (white is always handy to have), 8 balls of grey DK(hubby has his eye on this for another sweater. I told him to back the f off!), 2 balls of Mint Baby DK and 2 of Pink(charity knitting). I decided I'm going to knit a few things for charity. With these difficult economic times, I figure it's a good thing to do.
There you go! Have a good weekend if I don't post again. *mutter mutter work block mutter*
