30 August: More knitting

Recently I got 3 books from Amazon about stranded colour knitting. Then on Sunday I spent nearly 4 hours dyeing some skeins of Shetland wool. And I've been knitting some more hats, and this pair of mittens -

The wool is hand-spun undyed Shetland, and I tried the "peasant" type thumb placement - very easy to knit, and doesn't interrupt the stitch design. Now for a bit more practice knitting in the round with stranded colours.

And what will knitting do for the bum that (allegedly)looks big in everything?
Still I suppose you can't knit AND eat pies

Yes, I think you need a special attachment for eating pies at the same time.
It's the protestant work ethic - can't just sit and watch TV, must be doing something useful.
