Well at least it's not raining.

As if to compound the Startitis problem, look what arrived in the post for me this morning. I entered a competition on Clara's blog and won this great book. Now you all know what I think of Ms Epstein (my mate Nicky who admired a scarf of mine once) and having seen this book, I'm as much of a fan as ever. There are so many bags I want to start NOW and lots of them are in double knitting wool - which happens to be what I have most of, so watch this space, you may very well see my Sainsbury's bag replaced before long. I'm very unsure of the Swan bag though, it looks a bit too realistic, as if you're lugging a big dead bird around, especially with all the chicken feathers attached to the top...

So, items to cast on this week include a fair isle cardi (fortunately the yarn hasn't arrived yet), a bag with rows of little people on, a beaded bracelet and a long stripey sock, oh, and the other slip-up sock to match the one already made... Did I really say this week? Somebody help me, I am suffering with a severe case here.

Which means that items to complete include (note the word 'include' as in this isn't all of them!) Forest Canopy Shawl, rib and cable cardi, scribble scarf, second sock, lace competition thingy for Kerrie and so on and so forth...

Scribble Scarf?! Thought you'd thrown in the towel on that one - has it been brought back to life?

Glad you liked the book - thought of you the moment I bought it : )

Michaela you need help! Startitis can be very serious if not nipped swiftly in the bud! I've been suffering for years which is how I end up with lots of mismatched bunny heads and poor little creatures with no arms or legs! Have fun with all of your new projects!
