Pictures in my blog!

I have started and put a picture in my blog (which has moved) to here:

yarn is bought!

Ah! I've finally bought the yarn! I thought you guys'd like to know, because I'm substituting (the Rowan is WAY too expensive here in the antipodean lands). I'm working in purple Naturally "Kid et Soie" which is 70% mohair, 20% silk, 10% New Zealand Merino (it's an NZ yarn). All of $8.80 a ball. Swishy! (My local wanted more than 20 bucks a ball for the Rowan!). And the shop I bought it from gave me a nice calico bag to keep it in! Even better!

I'll probably take a while to post photos as I'm not going to be with the home computer...but I thought I'd share. Getting a bit worried about the unfamiliar stitches in the pattern...but I'll be ookaay...

Is anyone having problems with the lifted increase as described in the magazine? I just can't get it to work properly.

Oh, I have actually started, but no pictures yet. I have been playing with my blog.

Just wanted to say hi. I started mine in August in Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed in Ambrosia (straw yellow?). I finished the front and back, then set it down for almost a month! Anyway, I'm maybe a third through one sleeve, hopefully I'll be able to wear mine soon ;-) I'll try to take a progress picture or two when the weather's nicer, it's supposed to rain where I am for the whole week.

Almost ready to go!

I wanted to post to the KAL as it seems very quiet!

I am almost ready to go. I got the yarn in John Lewis while I was in Edinburgh, and have actually swatched. I could even start tonight, but as I am a serial knitter I HAVE to finish my Isis wrap first!

Back again...

I'm back again, hello everyone! Hello? Is there anyone here?!

I've noticed it has gone very quiet here. How are people doing? Chris, how is your Greep Pullover coming along?

I'm STILL waiting for my copy of IK, can you believe it? It must have got lost in the mail, so I've emailed the nice people at IK and they are resending this issue... Trust me to have something like this happen when I'm hosting a KAL for one of the patterns. And I'm literally chomping at the bit - I have the yarn, I have the needles, all I need is the pattern and I'll be off, knitting this pullover!

Anyway, hope you are all well, and if you start on your Greek pullover, don't forget to post pictures or at least to link to some - I can't wait to see how they will all turn out!! :)
