I Ort not be fickle…

but I couldn’t resist this jar after we had emptied it….so swappped it for the other.

I was so excited about getting some knitting done on dpns that I didn’t notice that I’d somehow managed to drop a needle….even when it is a triangle shape instead of a square. lol   It was only when The Missus asked me if I had dropped a dpn that I realised I’d been knitting with one less needle than I started! lol  Everything I know about how to knit following a pattern has gone completely out the window…..including remembering to keep count of stitches and rounds!  It doesn’t matter…..I’m having a ball!

It Ort To Be

My ort jar….sparkly and shiny all ready to be filled each month.  I love these jam jars…..look  lovely filled with buttons….as well a orts!

Christmas Kitty is well on the way to being finished.  It is hot here today – 36 degrees C at lunchtime….and a maximum of 40 degrees C.  The airconditioner is going and Pakistan are batting in the cricket.  I’ve started joining the two sides of this FOSAL ornament as I cheer on the Aussies…..which is a bit dicy, as I trimmed it too close…Slow and careful progress is in order I think!

I had a mooch this morning for another finish this morning which has disappeared!  I quilted an orphan block with bamboo batting…..lovely stuff….to use as a heat/non-scratch pad on the dining table.  I have NO idea where it is.  I’m sure it will turn up soon.
