Sisters Three

I’m going to be away alot this week, Monday and Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and then down to Melbourne on Saturday, returning on Monday. I hope I’ll have some stuff to post on Tuesday and Friday anyway, so don’t stop checking in 🙂

I have two sisters, Wiggins and I 18mths apart (I’m the eldest) then Zippy is 15 years younger than me, which makes her 13 (no that can’t be right… I think she’s actually 12). Anyway, here’re the sisters three:

This looks nothing like us, but I like the idea of them representing us.

An hour ago I was headed off to bed, photoshop sucked me in, good and proper.

Cast on last night, finished today. I got no sewing done ’cause I HAD to knit this. Once again it is made from my homespun merino yarn.

I’ve been bitten by this knitting thing. I should have listened to the inner voice when it was warning me not to get into knitting. I’m spreading my creation time too thinly. I listened to an audio book whilst knitting it, so all was not lost… if you are a member of www.Audible.com

Also, check out what I’m currently spinning:

Isn’t this just the most delicious colour. I’ve got another skein to spin, but in the meantime, I will start on a scarf. There’s no stopping this knitting thing.

Book Meme

This is from Liz’s blog, Dreaming Spirals…

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don’t search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what’s actually next to you

“Using a skewer, secure the opening so that the cumquats remain within the chicken.” From the recipe for Spiced Cumquat Chicken from Zest by Michelle Cranston, publised by Marie Claire. I didn’t count the ingredients when choosing the fifth sentence. This is a recipe I am unlikely to make since I don’t have access to cumquats 🙁 I wonder what I could substitute.
