Friday Always On My Mind

Aghhh. Here again. Busy working week, late nights, bloody cold and glad it's Friday...yippee. Tried to fit in some crafty stuff after work, but frankly, I was to tired to tackle much...but yesterday I learnt something new...Finger Knitting! This morning in the car (no, I wasn't driving) I "knitted" a very long scarf just by wrapping wool around four fingers (I do have five) on my left hand. You end up with a thin, spidery scarf, but because of the length, quite substantial. By the end of the car ride, I had five metre scarf! Will post a pic soon.
Tomorrow Two Bears are off to Lancefield Produce Market. It's not big but it's lovely; fresh produce, olive oil, chickens, eggs, herbs, wine, dips and best of all the Holy Goat cheese makers! Hmmm. It's so satisfying to start off with a big empty basket and finish off with a heavy one - full of good things.

Craft wise, I want to make another sock Monkey, cos one just isn't enough...and a felt Cottage needle holder (kindly posted by Vicki) that I spotted over at Turkey Feathers - beautiful site. I wouldn't mind trying that Strawberry Jam, too.

Also want to take lovely blog-pics of my new cat made by Fiona from Hop Skip Jump. She's divine! Check out

Have a lovely weekend.
