I am in a spin, I have just discovered that Phildar have finally started printing their patterns in English & you can order directly from them!
I absolutely love Phildar patterns & in the past have paid an exhorbitant amount of money to get the English translations from England or the US but no more!

I have some actual knitting content today, I even have photo's to proove it - see.

I am also around halfway through the Weekend Getaway Satchel. Since I'm knitting it in black I will save you the picture of an unidentifiable black blob, for now.

I know this is supposed to be a knitting blog but I have to confess, before I was a knitter, I was a crocheter (is that even a word?).
Anyway my Mum said she was looking for some doily's but couldn't find any she liked, so I have started a crochet doily to give to her for Christmas.

Crochet is kind of like lace knitting it looks crap until you block it!

In other non-knitting news I thought I'd share with you Penny's latest trick. I'm still working on getting her to do it on command but she does volunteer it a lot.

Aww, how cute

*Double OMG, I have actually been able to post. Blogger has not been playing nice lately & frequently won't let me log in, stupid thing!
Oh how clever and cute Penny is!!! She is such a bright girl!! And she's not eating your knitting. My mum just sent me my nan's crochet hooks, I have to make a beaded jug cover for a Christmas present. I am going to post a picture of something my nan crocheted next time. Your doily is coming along very nicely indeed!!!
The Labradors are too big to do Penny's trick, but they are ambidextrous hand shakers!!!
Penny is adorable! A great mascot for Live2Knit!! A very smart girl.

The doily is so're doing a great job. And I really like your purple bag too. You do so much and are so busy!!!
Aaaaw isnt Penny tute!

Oooh the doily is going to be gorgeous when done! I wish I could crochet (well I can sorta but not to patterns)

Might have to go look at the Phildar patterns.

Wow! Are people still using doilies? Yours is lovely. And so is your bag. And so is your doggy!
I completely understand your excitement - I've just ordered the Phildar Autumn 06/07 in ENGLISH from a Canadian website.

Penny is toooo cute!

PS: I've made a decision about the La Boheme and will email u later. x
I have bookmarked Phildars site for future reference.

Penny is such a clever girl and oh so cute!!
Just wanted to say Penny is VERY cute. I have one here at my place who looks very similar - his name is Bloke. :o)
