Let me chat a while....

Just a small update - I got my gimp working! I am really quite impressed, all I needed to do was to reinstall it, so I quickly did this, I thought it was nice, what do you think?

I think it looks pretty good :)

Going onto more pressing issues..yes the crochet, it has been a while that I have been updating here but I'm not going to let me deter me. I have finished the blanket that's now safely in Australia and thankfully was greatly appreciated, I would of been gutted if it hadn't, but that's not really the point, the point is that I can finish a blanket in under three years, that is fabulous!

There have been other projects,  mainly for the WI. We are knitting & collecting in baby jumpers and hats for the Fish & chip babies of Uganda, Kenya and South Africa. The pattern is  pretty simple, I have made four plus two hats and they worked up pretty well in knitting.

The second charity we are knitting for is the legwarmers for the Cystic Fibrosis kids, they are being collected by Supertramp, a company that specialises in trampolines.

The last one is not really a charity, it is more of an awareness. It is for the breastfeeders and their newborns, a crocheted hat to put on the baby's head. This pro-feeding Infant hat will make the men reminisce, and make the ladies chuckle,

So here is to the next project, baby blankets and clothes for S.C.U.B.U (Special Care Baby Unit) - a place close to my heart. I won't be doing clothes but there are some gorgeous preemie knitted & crocheted items at Ravelry, and I will be doing some blankets.

And the book of the moment? well it's Socks all the way baby!

Now that I have got the hang of that cast-on I am on my way to getting it done...if only I could just get off the internet!

Well, that's all for me for the time being, there wasn't enough time to tell you about the fact that we must have been having freaky weather, we had sun on Bank Holiday, I'm yearning to have an iPhone back, just on the basis that I can get an app and it allows me to listen to French radio. Last but not least Ian Hislop was so cute as a baby...maybe that will be my new secret!
