I’ve seen my mum’s pancreas

I’ve seen my mum’s pancreas

It looked like a grey blog made up of tiny grey blobs on a grey blobby background. The only reason I know it was a pancreas was because it said so on the ultrasound screen. And, the appointment was really short. Like 2 minutes. Not that I’m complaining. The NHS does (sometimes) rock.


The flip top mitten has been making (significant) progress. So as not to spoil what passes for a surprise around here I’ll show the whole thing when it’s finished. In the meantime, here’s some artsy stuff I got when playing with the macro setting on my new camera.

And here is a swatch for a new design I’m working on (mostly in my head at the moment):

all seasons swatch 1

For anyone with an incredible memory who has been reading my blog from way back may recognise the yarn as the same Rowan All Season Cotton I made Klaralund in. She’s going to be ripped. I’m not sad (well, maybe a little), becuase she’s going to be reincarnated as something I’ll actually wear! It also adds to the Project Spectrum stuff too (nice and neat, really).

Hot Water Bottle Cover:

The pattern is still in the pencil-on-paper stage right now and I have to actually type it up. If you knit really fast it could be done in a day so just in time for the mega-cold weather due in Britain this week!

I have been underwhelmed:

Please, pretty please, tell me what to do. I can’t decide whether I like the knit or purl side of the “Jessica” top I’m making. April said Purl. Anne said both. Wanda said Knit. Vote, my good people, vote!!! I have no energy or brain power to decide these things for myself anymore.
