Slow but sure...

So here's the progress of Forest Canopy. It's growing very slowly now, not only are rows getting bigger, but the only chance I get to knit is when son number 2 does his spellings and reading for me. Roll on Saturday evening I say!

Bride-to-be has been to look at her Cake today and loves it so far. Big sigh of relief there then! It's about half done now so only have 2 more nights left to do it. All you brides out there, think of us poor decorators when you ask for a sponge cake. Fruit cakes can be decorated in advance, but sponge cakes need to be as fresh as possible. Which is all very well when you buy them from Tesco's - so jam packed with preservatives, there's no room for any flavour! Ah but the result is so worth the effort and late nights (early mornings). Home made cake. Yummy! With or without gluten apparently.

Oh have you seen Dee's photos today on her blog? That yarn is just wonderful - I will be there on Sunday! On second thoughts, no, don't go to look at the yarn. You wouldn't like it at all. Go to your nearest Woolworths and get 500g of nice pink acrylic instead. Much better than cashmere. Or silk. Or merino. Who wants hand-dyed Posh Yarn, when you can buy enough yarn to knit a jumper for the price of a mars bar?! Me, me, ME!!!

im not surprised the bride loved her cake, I was showing wayne those pics of the kids that I sent you last night and I still had the one you sent me of the cake open. He said wow, show me that one, what is it? That looks amazing, who made it. I had to poke him to make him look at the cute kid pics. Tut tut. Amazing cake though. we decided to get married again just to ask you to make us a cake. :)

pretty colours! can't see the lifeline - are you knitting without a net??? :)

I counted the repeats and we are both at exactly the same place in our shawls. Synchronised knitting....

Wednesday night I knit several rows, no problems, all happy, thought I had it sorted. Last night, every row came out with the wrong number of stitches, couldnt work out why, had to unpick to last lifeline. sigh!
