YAY Wallace and Grommit Curse of the Were-Rabbit. There is a fantastic scene where a nervous Grommit pick up his needles.

It's sad. I have become so enamored with knitting that I find myself thinking I wish I was knitting right now.

My house is freaking freezing. My furnace is broken and I am waiting for it to be repaired by Uncle Rob. Until then I have to suffer with the cats sitting on me for warmth.

We are having some people over for halloween. We have become bored with the halloween club scene and so have decided to do something here instead. I am very excited I can't wait to make these.

I have just finished 2 scarves. One for friends son, it was a snake and one for my neighbours daughter. it is a Lamb. I hate making scarves, they are boring but easy and we need them especially in this house.

What happened?????

I don't know where to begin. Do I jump in with stories? Tell you who I am? How this happened?What I am wearing right now???? Or I do just start with a photo???

here is a photo....

For any of you who have ever felt the sense of confusion and loss after a major celebration (Christmas, your 21st birthday, your first child) You will understand. In my case, it was the wedding that I had planned for the 8 years we were together... Anyway... I was in Lewiscraft looking for silica to preserve my gorgeous grocery store bought bouquet when I walked past the 'wall of yarn'. Remembering my mother trying to teach me as a child and again as a teenager to knit (right handed, no wonder it failed) and trying to knit on a knitting machine at school I thought that I would give it another go. So I bought some yarn and a set of needles and came home to knit. I sat down and cast on and remembering the 4 steps to knitting (in, over, through and off) I began. Well it went ooooookkkkaaaayyyyyy and after an entire day I got somewhere. Empowered, I proceeded for the next several weeks to knit in garter stitch... and the rest is history.

More later.
