I've started the Airy Scarf from the Last Minute Knitted Gifts for my friend Gracie. Yes, I'm rubbish at keeping secrets, I've showed her the work in progress already. I used the Rowan Kid Silk Spray that I bought from John Lewis. I will then use the reminder of the yarn to knit one for myself. I found this yarn very sticky to knit with. What I mean is that it sticks to my hands and clothes. But its so lovely to feel and delicate. I'll finish it in a few days Gracie if you are reading this.
I also found out why my husband scarve was taking so long....I used 4mm needles instead of 8mm (as stated in the book).

School Carnival (taken on my husband's camera phone)
You've got to enjoy life. Apparently, it's going to be raining soon, so there is some incentive to do some crafting.

I haven't been doing much crafting lately apart from knitting my husband's never ending scarf. Its almost end of school term so there are lots of school activities and parent evening to attend. I have a very lively and funny daughter according to teachers....Hee! Hee!
I'm hoping to do more sewing later on, there are so many things I want to do, but I have to be more patient and wait till I have some time.

I've never really been the partying, fancy dress, clubbing, drinking type that a lot of my friends do for their birthday. Hee! Hee! So no mad photos to show but pictures of clouds and scenery in London. I didn't have my camera with me, so most of the photos were taken with my husband's camera phone. I will post these later....I'm still working how to transfer his photos onto my laptop.

Now I can make this Beret from Let's Knit magazine.
I wanted to make it a while ago, but thought it was a bit too excessive to pay over £15 in yarn. There are also many lovely fabric in the curtain/home furnishing department where you can find lovely fabric for £6 per metre! I also some found some fabrics selling for £4 per meter. I might go again tomorrow.
Ohhh, so many pretty things I want to make! I need to squeeze some time some how. Wish me luck.
Update...yep I couldn't resist it and went to buy this fabric which was only £6 per metre (half price). I may make something out of this lovely book.
