Before I move on to the usual work in progress stuff, I have a small favour to ask:
I'm taking part in a Guinness World Record attempt where we're trying to get 100,000 people to pledge to do a Random Act of Kindness before the end of 2012.
It will cost you nothing (apart from a little bit of kindness!) and I would love for you to help me with this.
All you need to do is click here and then pledge that you will do a Random Act of Kindness before the end of the year. This will not add you to an email list!
Please remember to enter my email on the form as your referrer, and email me if you have any questions. My email is nat DOT howells AT gmail DOT com
Thank you *grins*
Anyway, on to the crafting...
I'm not sure if it was a side effect of posting about my stash reduction progress, but I have cast on 2 new things *laughs*
This will be a cowl, using the softest, fluffiest yarn ever. I bought it in Calais, and have 3 balls of the teracotta colour, and 2 of the mustardy colour. Not really enough to do much with, so I thought a cowl with 5 stripes (one per ball) would be ideal. Also, this yarn is really the softest thing ever, so as long as it doesn't tickle my nose too much, it'll be lovely to have it close to my face to snuggle into *laughs*
I also cast on using the Noro I bought as a cheering up yarn. I deliberately started each sock at a different point in the colour repeat, so they will be matching but not matching at the same time ;)
I can see why people have mixed opinions of this yarn, I think this will probably be the last time I use it, but we'll see - it depends how the socks turn out really!
As ever, if you want more lovely knitting and yarn along content, head to Tami's and Ginny's *smiles*
