>Today I spent nearly five hours just making a pair of curtains – you might have caught me in action on the web cam. So why did it take me so long? The curtains are only 95cm long, I should have had them done in no time. Well, the reason it took so long is that each curtain is 3 metres wide. They are the curtains for Billy’s truck. Now when I say truck I’m not talking about a pick-up truck, I’m talking about this big bugger:

I got him to take this picture on his phone this evening when he parked up and he sent it to my phone so it’s not very good but you get the idea don’t you.
Anyway, here are the finished curtains and I have to say I’m sick of the sight of them:
As if it wasn’t enough that he wanted curtains making he also wants a pelmet to go across the top of the windscreen. I think I’ll make that next weekend.
Here’s the dog blanket that I finished last night. Now that I’ve pressed it it looks a lot better.
I took out a six month subscription to ‘Machine Knitting Monthly’ and I received my first issue last week. I am quite disappointed with it as I was expecting there to be more patterns but there are only seven – three childrens, one for Passaps, one for chunky machines, a plain V neck and a short sleeved top. I haven’t read all the articles yet so I may change my mind about it but all I can say is that I’m glad I only got a six month subscription and not a full years. I wonder what other subscribers think of it?
Talk to you later,
