Allroundcrafter

Okay, here's hoping I'm doing this right. I need to learn how to upload photos, to make this a more interesting place to come to. Gotta GET some photos first, though. I have finished a cloth that I have given to my son for his car. I knitted it on 9mm needles, and used a strand of WILD COTTON, and a strand of some cotton I got from a jersey I'd unpicked. It's a white cloth, but that's okay, the used cotton isn't really any good for anything else.
I've also finally started a mystery stole that I'm doing as part of a KAL. I'm doing it in a lovely blue 4ply Perendale, and on 4.5mm needles. I really like this colour, and so far the pattern is behaving itself.
I'm also knitting a shawl from A Gathering of Lace. This is also coming out really nice. Once I get a memory card for my camera, I will take some progress pics, and get them posted here.

My first attempt.

Okay, this is a first for me. NO pictures, yet. Gotta give me a chance. I need to explore this world of an online diary, and see just how much of myself I want to expose. This is supposed to be about my attempts to get my UFP's and WIP's under control. I love starting new patterns, but, have trouble finishing them. I also suffer SSS, which needs some working on. Joining a sock group is no help, 'cos it just causes me to have more single socks!!!! But.............I've joined two - or is it three - sock groups. I have no idea of what I'm doing here, so will just ifnish this first post here, and go and do some more knitting on a wrap that I really should have finished months ago, as it is already winter here in New Zealand.
