As soon as I do anything else or am somewhere other than on a train, it just doesn't seem to occur to me to pick up my needles.
I am hoping that this explains (to me) why I failed to knit a single stitch on holiday. No knitting on holiday yet, as soon as I was on the train back to work, out came my needles and off I set, as though I had been working on my project the day before (and not 2.5 weeks before).
This week, I have been working on the Knitting Lingerie Style Shaped Lace Tee and progress has been a bit slower than I hoped! Rather than cross post, I have posted about it here.
Otherwise it's been a quiet week for knitting, Dee has sent me through a photo of my yarn for the full Puss in Boots wrap (oh, it looks lovely) and I am hoping that the actual yarn will be with me on Monday. So this weekend, in preparation, I need to finalise the pattern templates.
(And sew up the Baby Ballerina Wrap...I am I am, I promise! Photographic evidence shortly.)
However, I did go to the Anthony Gormley exhibition at last. Just before it closed with all of the other last minute merchants from all across London (there were plenty of us too)! In fact, we were all so late getting to the exhibition that we knew that we couldn't really grumble about the fact that they had sold out of all the decent postcards. As a result, we all queued patiently to buy the overpriced exhibition catalogue (I winced, thinking of all the knitting books I want right now) and bought various man shaped knick knacks!
To share this very rare moment of extreme, high brow artiness (cough), I have uploaded two sets of pictures to Flickr:
- A selection of the photos that I took at the exhibition (until a nice lady told me that I wasn't allowed to take photos inside, only outside); and
- A collection of cameraphone snaps that I have taken over the summer - they are of the Anthony Gormley statutes on and around Waterloo Bridge. This may help to explain why I have really enjoyed the statues being there, why I discovered there was no need for me to put myself out by knitting the statues a cozy pink pair of angora knickers and also, why I will miss them terribly when they are gone!
I hope that you enjoy them!
