A Dilemma...

To knit or to blog/read blogs?

That's what I have to choose between each evening and invariably reading blogs wins! I just love to be nosy..peeking into other people's lives. That's why I love the autumn when you walk down the street at dusk before people have drawn their curtains but their lights are already on.

The trouble is that this is supposed to be a knitting blog but there has been little knitting going on:

3 inches of the 2nd Hedera

The booga bag is felted and dried. It's the one on the right and I'm not happy with it. It's too small and I hate hate hate the colours! It's for a friend who loved mine (on the left) but I'm not sure she's going to be pleased with hers.

MS3 Clue 1 is done!! Finally! I'm actually very pleased with it, I think the cashmere really works well and the yarnovers are nice and clear. On to Clue 2 now, hoping I can catch up in the 2 week break whilst everyone else is reading Harry Potter.

hahaha my dilemma too! Also I love that time when you can peek into living rooms - what a pair of nosey parkers we are!

Glad you liked my new header makes the seventy billion attempts worthwhile! Actually the photo was quick it was getting the text and fit right that took the time. I used a programme called PaintShop Pro but I think any photo editor would do it.

I like yours best too, although the one you made for your friend is nice too, I bet she loves it. I am in a similar dilema with a bay blanket I am making for my sister. I am trying to convince myself I'll like it soon, but I don't yet. Trying to get it finished fast to start back on someting I really love! Am I the only person in blogdom not knitting the MS???!!!

I love how your stole is looking- I don't have a big enough attention span for lace.
I know what you mean about the internet. It's a double whammy for me- by reading blogs I'm not knitting what I have cast on AND I'm finding more stuff I want to cast on.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

p.s. I suffer the same dilemma every night too.
