Actual Knitting Content : )

Actual knitting content for once. I finished both of these last week. The socks are from a random Opal ball of yarn I bought years ago,lost the button band. The fingerless gloves are from yarn dyed by Babylonglegs. Spell checker wants to turn that into Babylonians, which is curiously apt lol

I tried doing the fingers with 4" dpns, but they kept sticking into my palms and were awkward to use, so I went back to my trusty 6" ones instead.

I have now started my Green beret, and am finishing off a cross-stitch picture of a Delft tile.

In search of an interesting topic

My daughters recently pointed out that I have not blogged for some time.

The problem is, I seldom have anything interesting to say, or show. I have no witty banter to share, or hilarious anecdotes to regale people with. I have no deeply moving story to tell or any important political or newsworthy item to discuss. And I'm not sure how my daughters would feel about a steady stream of doting grandma photos of their children.

I am just an ordinary woman. So how do others find something to speak about day after day I wonder?

Here is a gratuitous knitted shawl photo, just to keep the blog alive. Its made from 2 skeins of Artesano DK in Chaffinch.
