Ta - dah! But don't look too closely, cough, cough ...
I've just this minute finished my first ever sock with my first attempt at using dpns, and I'm a happy, not-so-little flutterby. Yes, I know I had two extra stitches at the toe, and somehow I'd knitted it inside out (according to the pattern) but apart from that ...
I now just hope the other one will be identical! I'll cast it on tomorrow once the tension (get it?!) has dispersed.
I got to the unusual position of finishing all the ironing this morning so, after lunch, I started to tackle a project I've been dreaming of over the summer break (waiting for DH to return to work before I started! Haha!!)
This book case (and its twin) have been bugging me because they look so sad, and I fancied giving them the CK treatment.
I've put a first coat of white primer on the outside
then I broke into a couple of rolls of sticky back plastic I rescued from Lidl a couple of months ago, and lined the shelves. For once, I read the instructions and was pleased I'd done what I was told, and sprayed the shelves with a little water first (made the plastic much more move-aboutable). I would never have thought to do that.
I'm not sure what colour paint to use - better sleep on that one.
Night, night, all - I'll try to visit as many WOYWW desks as I can, by the weekend. I managed to get round all, last week. You're such an inspiring bunch - thanks in advance for sharing your goodies. Don't know what I'm on about? Just click here, and you'll be amazed at what you find.
Hugs, Chris xx
