Jan Eaton's Book Errata I've listed the known corrections for my crochet and knitting books here - titles include UK and US versions of 200 Crochet Blocks, 200 Knitted Blocks and 200 Ripple Stitch Patterns
This is coming along nicely. In real life, the yarn's a much deeper, richer colour than it looks here.
I've finished crocheting another ripple blanket - this one's fairly small, just big enough to chuck over my knees when it gets chilly (real winter chilly, not chilly-for-June). Look at all those ends that still need sewing in!
I looked, I resisted, I looked again and couldn't resist any longer. My favourite yarn in my favourite colour; now sadly discontinued by Jaeger. This came from Cucumberpatch, who still have stocks of Extra Fine Merino DK at a very good price.
June 21 - nice Sony Vaio laptop; Windows Vista, so far, is pretty bloody irritating. I have a brand new modem, up-to-the-minute Vista-compatible modem drivers installed and no success in getting any of them to cooperate with each other.

I'm still knitting away; I can't concentrate enough to knit anything remotely complicated so these are all very simple...
Kim Hamlin's Rectangle Shawl from Blue Sky Alpacas knitted in Colinette Cadenza DK, colour Copperbeech, on a 4.5mm KnitPicks circular. I'm working the shawl over 81 stitches, not the 101 given in the pattern, and it's a very nice knit.
June 15 - sound travels an amazing distance where I live. The couple in the centre of today's photo are getting stuck in to a shouting match; I can hear every word (you don't want to know) four floors up on the opposite side of the road...
