Delicate Knitting

Here is the so far picture of the Mystery Lace. A lot more delicate knitting than I usually do. This is the first 22 rows of the pattern. More rows of the pattern become available on friday so I hope to have more progress by this time next week.

I was intrigued by a comment made yesterday about the road picture. Somebody asked if it just stops in the water. It made me think that maybe it wasn't really a road and we had read the travel booklet incorrectly and the only way to the island was infact just the bridge. I decided to do a bit of detective work and found this on Wikipedia . It is called the Passage du Gois and yes it is a road and it floods twice a day. They even had the Tour De France over it a few years back.

I was tagged yesterday too. I'm not altogether sure what a tag is but I was asked to name 7 random facts about myself so here goes.

  1. I learnt how to mix lots of colours from just the 3 primary colours of red, blue and yellow this morning at a painting class at school

  2. I am the eldest of 3 children

  3. My first car was bright yellow despite me hating the colour

  4. I am right handed

  5. My favourite TV programme is Come Dine With Me but I am hopeless at cooking

  6. I prefer spring to summer

  7. I hate cardmaking - love at what other people have done but hate doing it myself.

I am supposed to tag 5 other people now but I don't know 5 other people with blogs so all I will say is if you are reading this and would like to be tagged then consider yourself tagged.

can't wait to see your lace done (^_^)

I'm very impressed with your lace - as you know, I had to ditch my initial effort at laceweight/tiny needles for something a little more substantial. I can't wait to see it grow!

That's beautiful. So much work and I know I wouldn't have the patience. You must post a pic when it's complete.

Mima, a blogging friend passes the tag on to the first five bloggers who visit her blog to read the post.

I'll do the tag tomorrow :-)

Bye for now . . . Sue
