Showing off!!!

Knitting is my number one hobby. It has kept me sane and stress free, especially in the early part of this year. The ponchos I have made are snatched out of my hands even before I finish the last fringe. This green one is part of a "thank you" project to some very special people.


I pleased to boast also that I have learnt how to work a digital camera and download photos to the computer. Never too old to learn!!!!


Yes Nick. You are on the list, I promise!!!!.

Uaridi...I live in a place that looks like hell frozen over in the winter..brrrr...brrr!!!(picture me shaking, trembling & shivering,lol!)...could I too be on the list? I can pay you in pictures...is that good enough? (silly look here)
-Seriously, very good quality knitting you have here & it's not showing off if you're good at it, you're merely showcasing your talent:)
Happy knitting & this is where you ask for my measurements,lol!!

Thank you all for the compliments. I do enjoy knitting especially when I hear of a baby coming soon.

When I finish the December list (loong) I will discuss with you all.

Milo: is it true you are only 21? For your information, I know a 60 year old lady from Lesotho who went to uni. for a physics degree!!

I see everyone is clamouring to be on the list, and dozy me got left snoozing while everyone ran to the goal post (shame shame) -

So Auntie, seeing as all the shmoozing has been done, and I am late, what do I have to do to get one of those lovely ponchos - especially as you know its started freezing and we need something warm.

Hey, thanks for the compliments. Thank you everyone for the compliment. I did not think that this simple poncho would l recieve such praise. I have been busy finshing a large project. Will show it off to you all later. So I suppose everyone who asks will be on the list - but you have to wait until the first lot about 15 of them are done (I think by January?)

Desert Warrior - good for you - when you hit a snag, just let me know.
