A final FO for 07




A string of stinking hot days is probably not the best time to be knitting but I decided to pump out one last FO before New Year's.

With hindsight, perhaps cotton yarn might have been a wiser choice for a 40+ day, but hey ... not knitting at ALL would be a wiser choice for a 40+ day ...

Superknitter can knock one of these out in about three hours. I didn't keep track but it was at least double that long and maybe triple.
I'm not a slow knitter so I'll claim extra consideration because of the steamy weather. [ but Yvette lives in steamy steamy Queensland so there goes THAT excuse ]


needles:
4mm Ivore
yarn:
Sirdar Snuggly DK - a little less than 1 x 50gram ball of blue plus remnants of yellow and white
pattern:
Yvette's amended BSJ [ not available ]

At this point the hot spell is supposed to last at least until the weekend.

Wonderful.
David goes on camp Tuesday to Friday - and I just hope they have aircon. ETA they did
What am I doing while D is away ? Not a bloody clue. If the weather stays like this, not a lot.

David and I won't be doing anything special tonight - toooo damn hot to go to the fireworks, I'm afraid, but if you are going out, have a great and safe time. Happy New Year folks and drive carefully please! I'd like to see you all back in '08 :]
ETA Blogger ate a whole bunch of photos today [ January 13 ] so I've just spent over an hour putting 'em all back - apologies to those of you who read through Bloglines or some other feed because they're all going to show up as new posts again

Happy new year! You'll get to start yours before those of us across the pond. Try it on and let me know how it feels, would you?

Happy New Year to you too, Susan, and David.

I hope the weather breaks before the weekend for you.

I look like seeing the New Year in by myself - Richard has gone to bed and I'm here cutting up and stewing apricots. Stripped one tree today and will have to do the other one tomorrow. Have to beat the damn white cockatoos somehow...lol. Fortunately, we love stewed apricots.

Never mind, I have the gorgeous David H. to keep me company while I work.

Your BSJ is cute. What size did you get with DK? You mentioned the pattern was modified, so maybe you got the size you wanted . . .

Happy New Year and you just need to know that you are leading me astray and it is costing me money.

Happy New Years, Susan! Warm best wishes to you and David :)

No worries on my account. I'll be safely tucked away inside wearing fuzzy slippers and sipping diet soda! That's how I like to celebrate the end of the year. ;)

Happiest of New Years to you and yours! I hope it's a wonderful one for you.
