Just had a pleasant weekend...on Saturday decided to go to Rye in Hastings. Never been there before had a lovely mooch around and came across a small craft shop with quite a few knitty things but nothing that toke my fancy. The streets of Rye are mostly cobbled, not good on the ol leggies. But the sun was a shining and there was a wedding at the town hall which we stopped and watched. The bride must have been a school teacher as all her class were waiting for her outside (infants at that) all holding their balloons. She was led down the town hall stairs by a town cryer, bought quite a tear to my eye thinking about my 3 daughters weddings.

Anyway postie came last week and brought mePhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Anway, wanna have a peak at my Wip at the moment. Socks.....oh yes socks haven't done any for such a long time with all the baby knitting. The yarn is from The colourway is shall we say questionable but different. Differents good (I think).

I really like the colour of the sock yarn and the pattern on the baby blanket is lovely. I don't think I've seen that pattern before.

That looks like an interesting book. Nothing in it that would flatter my figure, I'll bet! ;)
