Not again!

I think I'm coming down with another cold. Can't believe it. I've only just cleared the last one! But I've got a sore throat, and that spaced feeling... Maybe a week of early nights will beat it before it starts. As long as I can keep my house tidy I don't think I have anything else to do particularly!

I did do a little reconfiguring of Rusty's handlebars... I haven't had a chance to ride it yet, but it looks sweet.


And it was a very busy Saturday. All that tidying! And mortgage advice, and photos taken... Knackering! Still, hopefully my house will be visibly for sale now, and we'll find a really quick buyer, and all will be well. Please?!

And I started a new jumper. In Debbie Bliss Maya, which is gorgeous, but does seem to be turning my needles slightly pink. I suspect we may have a dye leak issue for a bit. It's going to be a fairly simple v-neck, with a cable up the front splitting for the neckline, and a little bit of waist shaping. Raglan. I'm making it up as I go along, so we'll see how it goes. Won't be the first time! The turquoise Colinette jacket did get a new sleeve, but I really don't like knitting on 12mm needles! And if anyone has any ideas how to sew up point 5, that would be great...
