Knitting Daily!

Just a quick post to let you all know about Knitting Daily. I found it on Angelika's blog. It's brought to you by Interweave Press, sign up and receive free patterns, news letters and lots more.
In progress news....
I am knitting Na Craga from Alice Starmore's Aran Knitting for Shear Comfort Farm.It's actually a cabled pullover that even beginners can tackle, with a combination of five 4 and 8 row patterns. Everything lines up nicely and is quite easy to memorize.

I'm using an Alpaca Silk blend of DK weight. Not my personal colour choice, but I don't have to wear it. My camera sees it as a carmel colour, but my daughter says it's pee yellow!

And I can't get enough of the new OZZY.... and Zakk of course!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words...

This is the only sheep that came into the house.

A weekend of hard work, and none of it was mine!
And here's my little postie.

Another week-end gone...

There was actually some knitting going on.
I have one sock done for the Six Sox Knit-a-long. The second one started.
Oh look some more sheep showed their faces.

I made some progress on the shawl...

Oh look another sheep in rain gear, no less.
My daughter picked me up a great footstool, and I had a little help re-organizing my stuff.

Look how nice it matches my knitting basket.

Oh look, more than one project on the go.

And I still have a ton of room for more stash.

My gadget box.

What's in your basket?
