Back To School!

Back to school on Wednesday, so its been a nice short week but quite busy.


















I have started knitting a monkey after seeing this inspiration (the abominable snow monkee) on Monkey Maker's blog. - Thanks to Monkey Maker for letting me borrow her photo, my monkey is still in pieces.













A friend at school asked me to knit up her sheep kit she was given at Christmas (she got stuck) so that's my next project.
Leigh at Love leigh things has given me an award, Thank you Leigh.










It was a lovely surprise and I am very grateful. So now I'd like to give the award to: Monkey Maker, Just another row, Little house by the sea, Dances with wool, I'm a ginger monkey, Lucy Locket, Mushroom Meadows, Raindrops to Rainbows, Seeking Saknity, Skein cocaine beacuse you make my day.

This award is for sharing and there are some simple rules.
"Give the award to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel happy about blogland. Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so they can pass it on. Beware you may get the award several times."
(If you haven't got ten people, just award to your favourite few.)

Yesterday I bought some useful books and a cone of very fine mauve & white yarn which I hope to knit up into a lacy shawl eventually.

Hi Jane,

Thanks for thinking of me when handing out your awards .... I'm touched :)

.... thought I recognised that monkee!

Good luck with yours, I'll be making some more fluffy ones next. Be warned, the sewing up is by far the worst part.

Oh wow Jane, thankyou so much for the award, its my very first one and i was always hoping id get one eventually! How do i put the little picture up on my own blog and then pass it on to more people? What are the 'award giving' ettiquettes? Lol, cus i see alot of these awards on peoples blogs and they always have the picture there. Also, how do you put the links in? For example when you said the name of my blog i could just click on it and get there. Sorry about the technical questions!! Ooooh, im so happy to have an award! xx
