Part 3 Finished


I finished part 3 of my Castle's in the Air Mystery Sal by Papillon Creations last night. I made a boo boo on it before I moved homes but didnt discover it till last night. I stitched the sides from part 3 arse about face, put sides 2 and 4 where parts 1 and 3 should go and vica versa. It don't really matter as they are practically the same, it just means the colours are in different places lol. My mind must have been elsewhere when I made the mistake as I usually pride myself in not making such big mistakes in my stitching lol. At least I don't have to frog it lol.

Finally, an update

I guess I have been missing in action for a while. It's not been intentional but a combination of things have occured to merit me devoting less time to my stitching. My back has been bad, major stomach problems and arranging a surprise 40th Birthday party for Him Indoors which was last saturday but his birthday was Tuesday the 23rd. That was stressful and it was like a covert Military operation but a good time was had by all.


On the stitching front, not much accomplished but I hope to rectify that now. He is looking pretty good now.


I have also managed to knit some mittens for one my granddaughter's to be who will be named Sofia Andrula.


Last but not least, I have done two more squares for my throw.



I am also crocheting a blanket for Sofia for when she is at my home :)
I have knitted an aran cardigan for one of the babies but I am having trouble putting the blasted thing together. It was knitted in a weird way ie from cuff to cuff then right and left front, then body and then button band. I am an experienced knitter but the putting together is driving me nuts and it will probably end up going for a flying lesson across the room lol.

Finally, a very poor update lol.

Here is two weeks worth of stitching..............pitiful isn't it? And to top it all I haven't got the chart so went to reprint it and no ink FFS! Oh well shit happens lol. It's my biscornu from Barbara Ana.
I have knitted for the first time in 20 years +. I knitted some booties.


My daughter had her scan yesterday and she is having a girl! So thats two grand daughters that will be born in the summer. Two little princess's to spoil rotten lol.
 I am in the process of knitting a bonnet, when I can be bothered. I don't seem to want to do much at the moment but what the heck, I am used to it. I seem to have these episodes and then all goes back to normal lol.


This is the second square of my throw. I'm behind in that too and I have the third one ready to do. I hope I can get it done before the next four parts arrive lol.

I haven't worked on my Magician or Celtic Summer for a couple of weeks so I need to get going on them too.
