Temptation

As I was logging into Blogger this morning, Baa Baa Blacksheep came up on the 'just updated' roll. There were others on astrophysics for beginners, promoting world peace, etc. etc. but this was the one I went for. Bad decision. Baad decision.

Not because Bea (sole proprietor of said blog, est. Nov. 2nd. 2006) is a knitter. That's what I was hoping for. (Looks good, too.)

But because she's got a link to Interweave Press. Oh no...... And I am NOT taking out any subscriptions or buying any more books this year, because we are leaving here in approximately seven months, twenty-one days, and hours-minutes-and-seconds-subject-to-confirmation.

So frivolous spending on More Stuff is bad.
Baad.
But.
Buuuut.
Baaaaat....!!

Bea: If you're reading this, your comment page comes up with Error 72, Char 7, Object expected. I have no clue what that means, but this is what I would have put!

Hi there. I just found your blog this morning. Haven't you come a long way in a few months of knitting! Lovely shades and texture. Well done you!

My mother taught me to knit when I was about 12, but I never finished anything until I was pregnant: then I figured I had nine months to knit something, and babies are small so I might manage it. It worked!

P.S. I love your blog colours, but wondered if you could maybe use a larger font? The closer I get to 50, the more myopic I get, and I can't be the only one! =(

So, in the "Model not included" pic, you're plugging the brickwork, I take it?

The sweater's kinda pathetic. The model does cover up the silly sweater, I agree.

I don't quite agree that babies are small all over the world. The Brit baby I was introduced to at your place when I visited was fully as tall as I was when I was 13 (he was just discovering gravity at the time and I recall you trying to save your crockery from his grubby paws and my clumsy... er.. me). Now please knit me a Balaclava, I'm old enough to need one.

Just make it baby size and it should fit.

*grin*
