My Sheldon Cooper bobble head arrived! *happy dance* and at the moment I’m watching the episode where Sheldon plays the bongos!  It’s so funny 🙂

On another note, 2 days into my new job and I’m loving it.  The people are so nice and the place is very swanky 🙂  Been working on the scarf for my mother in law, it’s still not finished, but I really need to block it, it’s curling up and it’s beginning to bug me lol 
Got some green wool to knit a scarf for step-dad’s Chrismas, and all the circular needles I ordered on ebay arrived today, so I can’t wait to get cracking on some socks etc *big smiles*
I really want to buy some Sugar ‘n’ Cream Yarn to attempt knitting washing up cloths, and I was thinking of attempting some other wee accessories…..shall see how that goes.

It’s a miserable day here, rain, high winds, and a huge dog that’s frightened of it all.  Doesn’t make knitting very easy that’s for sure.  Hamish has decided that as well as being scared of sheep, horses, cows, bubble wrap and puppies, he’s also afraid of the wind…….hmmmm scardey dog!

On a side note, I’m working on the scarf for Max’s Christmas, you can’t really see in the picture, but there are oatmeal and white stripes as well as a blue one before the huge blue section.  Once the blue section is a decent enough length I will mirror the oatmeal/white/blue stripes at the other end.  This should go nicely with the oatmeal mittens and the blue snowflake hat.

Ordered a book on circluar knitting, really fancy trying knitting socks and Christmas stockings – had to buy circular needles too!  Can’t wait for it all to arrive as the circ. needle I have is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to long/big to knit with, it’s like 100cm and I only need one that’s teeny for the socks etc lol

Discovered some fab craft blogs this morning, lots of printing & card ones as well as knitting ones – enjoying reading through the back posts – might get another cuppa and read a bit more

Back from a long weekend away watching cars speeding round a race track, and I even managed to squeeze in a visit to a wool shop! 
The other half got a driving experience for his birthday, so being the lovely wife I am, I went along to film and photograph the entire experience for him. 

After that I headed off to Banchory to a wool shop where I had to treat myself to some Rico DK.  Started another item from the Christmas Knit list, a Christmas stocking.  I did have the idea to make a stocking for each member of the family as a sort of “gift bag” for their Christmas gifts.  Attempting to knit the stocking from a pattern in the free supplement of latest Knit Now magazine.

On a side note, my Dr Sheldon Cooper hasn’t arrived yet – boo!!
