My photo

I knit, I sew, I run, I look after children and hamsters, I take truly terrible pictures, I cook, I complain.  Sometimes all at the same time.

Some things about knitting

Margaret Atwood, who I admire enormously (obviously), is on Twitter. A while back, she announced she was joining ravelry, as she is a knitter. She is also involved in this project:

She mentioned on Twitter, and I wondered whether dodos knitted on socks would count. She messaged me (!) to say that they would indeed count, and so I searched the internet for a suitable picture to translate into a knitting pattern and ended up with the picture at the top of this post.

Anyway, they are going to go on a pair of socks, on the legs. I will use Stephanie Pearl--McPhee's basic pattern but with a short row heel. I think I will use a pale blue as the main colour. I had to buy the yarn as I have no grey sock yarn. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

In other knitting news, the Swedish fish mittens are super easy to make. Hurrah for SpillyJane.
