Gone Knittin....x (with missing pictures!!)

I love, love, love to knit!
Everything about it makes me happy! The squooshy, sweetie coloured, softness of balls of wool; the ummming and arrrrrrring, the holding, the putting down, the buying, the stashing away in your bag; the vast array of fabby needles that can be bought, found, thrifted; the lovely folk who do it...quite often, it would seem, covertly ('you knit toooooooooo?! oh me too! Lets be best friends!! or thats the way it goes with me!); the feeling that when you have a knitting project secretly stashed in your bag, you are never alone!
It is always as the weather begins to cool and I begin to sing school songs that I suddenly have a full force craving to pick up sticks and begin at least a months full on love in with my knitting!
And this woolly love is extended to my Christmas wreaths. If I could have one of these on my door all year long I would! ((to be found in my folksy shop from October)
It says "Yes! This is a house where homemade warmth resides, come in and have a cup of tea and a slice of wonky Victoria Sandwich!

Would love to knit!! i like the whole concept of the end product, but not the actual doing - saying that i haven't actually tried it!!

Would love to have a piece of wonkey victoria sponge with you - the wonky ones often taste the best :)

Loving your blog Mrs B - voted for you on Dorset cereals best blog award. So many blogs i love, but your has it all for me. Keep up the good work - you cheer me up no end. xxxx

I love knitting, too - and if you have your knitting with you, you never feel that you are sitting around doing nothing. I have just spent and hour and a half knitting in the cafe while Princess B was at swimming club - so what might have been a chore, became rather a nice bit of time out!

Will you show us some pics of what you are knitting - or even some lovely yarn?!

Oh I am so so so so pleased you're going to be putting the wreaths in the shop - I wanted one last christmas, couldn't figure out how to make it and lived - actually still live - in an area where its probably not wise to leave stuff on doors. October here I come!

arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr you see your ladies after my own heart! Any fav colour combo requests?! x

meplusmolly said...

Rusty rich autumnal/warm hues - copper, plum, rich red, rust, dark choc, I could probably go on and on about many other colours too, but you don't need any help to create beautiful wreathes you know!! ;0 X

Mrs B said...

kirsty! great minds think alike (and fools rarely differ...but we will leave that aside!!) I have a ball of burnt orange beside me and a lovely teal!! Is it madness to be excited about Christmas?! xxx

Dearest Mrs B!

Firstly, I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE the Christmas wreath. I am without doubt ordering one in October and it will hang with great pride on my door :O)

Can't agree more about the knitting. Meditation, relaxation, creativity all in one. I was sure by the time I was 6 months pregnant (i.e. now!) that I would have knitted a whole wardrobe for little nugget. What have a I managed? One blue sock!!!!!!! But this week I picked up the old knitting pins, full throttle, and we are off!! It felt so wonderful knitting with gusto. My problem is once I start really knitting I start day dreaming at work, all I want to do is to return to my knitting!
