Fly By WNBPP* now with photos

* Wednesday Night Bullet Point Post

So this is what I'm:
  • Knitting - lacy nightie from IK in Cleckheaton Bamboo. Mine will be more cami than nightie.
  • Loving - the bamboo yarn - wonderful drape, lovely sheen, sort of slinky feel. The test will be how it washes up because I could see this being fabulous next to baby skin.
  • Trying - Russian Joins as a way of coping with the slippery yarn and working on circs. So far so good!
  • Quilting - not so much. Was going to do some hand piecing at Goldfield's Quilters today but when I got there at 9.40 there was no sign of anyone so I went home and reorganised the smallest bedroom instead. I know they all turned up later but just for a moment I was convinced I'd got the week wrong. Oh well - next time.
  • Painting - my bathroom is now green to match the bedroom. Not being one to rush these things, it's only taken me 11 months to get back to it. I did the cutting -in last February.
  • Reading -just started The Book Thief. Too early to comment yet
  • Watching - Blackpool on DVD [ David Tennant yummo ]
  • Looking forward to - the Australia Day holiday weekend and visits from Chris/Maz and Nadie ... also the Fryerstown Antique Fair also this weekend - which is why Chris and Maz are coming up.
  • Feeling sad about - the fact that Heath Ledger's life has ended so tragically and so early

sorry we missed you, and only just -there were 3 pp there by 9.45! Sounds like you found something useful to do anyway

My brain ran the title and all together and read the first couple of lines as "Fly by Nightie"!

Short and to the point - very sad about Heath - glad someone else takes as long as we do to fonish painting!

I know what you mean about Heath Ledger...so sad.

Now I'm off to come up with my own bullets for tonight's post. Here's hoping the muse drops something on me soon...

The whole Heath Ledger thing has made me sad, too. It's such an awful waste, isn't it? So young. Thanks for all the goatsy/cat pix below! Love 'em!

I've liked the bamboo yarn when I've seen it in stores. It sounds like a great choice for your nightie.

Sharing your sadness over Heath Ledger...

I've tagged you Susan - details are in today's blog post :)

Hope things are going well! Best to the caprine crowd :)

I made some socks out of bamboo yarn and it washes up so soft. It would be very good next to baby skin. It's a little too soft for socks, not a lot of stitch definition. The nightie looks beautiful. I would totally wear it as a camisole under a sheer blouse.
