The secret project

continues, but alas not apace. I did take it with me on my run but was too tired to do any knitting last night, just managed to eat, speak to Ro on the 'phone and go to sleep. Tonight though I intend to get some more of it done.

I'm quite pleased with how it's turning out and will show it when it's finished (hope you're not all too disappointed!).

In the meantime I'm going to show you some pics of my new baby (no it isn't a spinning wheel, I was outbid on the one I wanted on ebay. If the person who bought the Frank Herring wheel is out there I hope you give it a good home!)

No, this is my new baby:-

aint she purty? She arrived last week new from the suppliers and I took her out for the first time this week. Took her (amongst other places) to Cheltenham racecourse to do a delivery to Nuts Cafe for the Greenbelt Festival, so have a good weekend all you Greenbelters out there, hope the weather stays (?stays?) fine for you.

I've been listening to the latest Knitting Newscast and Rhonda Bell's been talking about the new Vogue Knitting magazine. There's a section in the magazine called "Modern English".

I quote "Modern English includes highland themed sweaters with a modern appeal" Well that'll please the Scots then!!!!!

She's very PURTY. I struggle with parking my lil Toyota people carrier and can't even imagine what it would be like parking that truck!

Looking forward to seeing the secret project.
