Oh my goodness I am so excited today, I think I am finally getting my knitting mojo back! I have been doing some knitting but I've had a couple of disasters and to be honest my heart just hasn't been in it. But today it has all changed. I went into Newcastle this morning as I had heard about this knitting shop and I was looking for a gift and thought I would give it a go. Well I am in love!! Apart from feeling slightly foolish when I phoned to say I could find the place and thought the door I was trying was the wrong one as it wouldn't open only to be told to give it a better shove, honestly what a eejit I am! Once I finally made it through the extremely heavy, in fact lead like door (I may be exgagerating!!) and got into the shop it was amazing! So many beautiful things to look at and the lady/owner was so helpful and really just lovely, she has asked me along to the knitting group that she runs at the shop. I am so excited, I have been looking for a group and have found some but none of the times have really worked for me but this one is perfect! So I bought the gift I was looking for and some yarn for myself (how could I not?!) and almost ran home so I could tell you and cast on something so I can take something to the next group!
So no real wip today but I am going to show you this
This is all my lovely yarn that will be wips very soon as I'm back baby, I'm back!! (Sorry that seems a little dramatic, but you know what I mean!)
This is what I'm reading at the moment
I started it yesterday and so far quite enjoying it. It's one of those books that you've had for ages and never picked up and in fact when looking at it you can't even remember why you bought it in the first place... not to worry though it seems good and it's not very long. So far its about an Italian author in the 1950/60's and his experiences in New York. Its non fiction and wrote in a diary style, which I quite like so its not hard reading!
I'm off to visit Tamis and see what everyone else is up to!
