A side-step

I've taken a side-step back into crochet (just a little step though!).  I need to do something at knit whilst on the couch sitting next to my hubby, I mean, I can't sit there & knit his surprise jumper with him there can I!!

The secret project

Ok, so you can keep a secret right... hmmm, right???
Remember how me telling you that I was going to knit my hubby a vest & I asked your opinions on which vest to knit... well, I couldn't really make a decision one way or the other but I ended up choosing a pattern from a knitting magazine that I just happened to pick up at the newsagents. You see the strange thing is that I NEVER look at knitting mags, I don't really buy magazines but for some reason, I wondered down the aisle, picked up a mag, thumbed through it & there was a blokes vest. So, I decided fate had chosen this one for me!

stripes from scraps!
To stripe or not to stripe is the question.... well, it is for me anyway!

So it's out with the old blog header ...

And now for something brighter.....
