It’s twenty past four, no work tomorrow, a very busy weekend planned and I can’t sleep..
So I thought a blog post was in order, please excuse my late night ramblings!
We’re traveling up to Yorkshire tomorrow for my sister-in-law’s wedding on Monday, so I’ll have another bash at [starting knitting my shrug](http://www.suzical.co.uk/blog/tutorial/how-i-learned-to-knit-using-the-internet). I started it a few weeks ago, but haven’t quite got the hang of the ribbing, I’m hoping my Mother-in-law will have chance to help me out this weekend! Though I imagine it will be a pretty hectic weekend!
In fact I’ve just come across a site with [quite comprehensive instructional videos on knitting](http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Knitting/Howtos/Knitting+Made+Easy+-+video+lessons.htm), I think I might have to try ribbing on a practice piece before attempting it in a garment!
A friend sent this video through to me – it’s fabulous, watch through to the end, it just gets funnier!
Mary over at [Needle’nThread has a 10% off deal for the month of April](http://www.needlenthread.com/2009/04/french-needle-embroidery-kits-supplies.html) with The French Needle, they have some [beautiful surface embroidery kits](http://frenchneedlework.com/cgi-bin/general.pl?Sur.Emb.-&Sur.Emb.-) I love [this bird](http://frenchneedlework.com/cgi-bin/detail.pl?PRI1641) but between the exchange rate and the duty payable for shipping into the UK it works out quite expensive!
While I quite like being awake while everyone else is asleep, it’s so quiet outside and there’s no pressure to be doing anything, I know I’m going to be exhausted tomorrow so I should try and grab a bit of sleep.
