Number 2 was these little labels to sew into my knitted items. I saw the idea on Grumperina's blog and thought it was brilliant. I have designed the labels and got as far as printing them yesterday, before realising my transfer paper needs the image to be reversed. I'm about to find out how to do that. Hoping to get some finished and sewn in soon.
Edited to add: Applying these using a hot iron on a synthetic, shiny, iron with a cool iron only ribbon was so not a good idea. This project looks to be one of those that turns into an ongoing one!

This wasn't the only knitting of the weekend. I did start on some socks in Trekking XXL. I had intended ot knit Monkey socks from Knitty, but I hadn't realised the yarn was stripey. I frogged and start the Jaywalkers pattern instead, but I'm not sure I like these. I love the heel construction, my first time knitting a heel flap, but I'm not sure I like the patterned yarn. I'm still undecided what to do about these.

I have been a bit busy recently, still knitting, but also avoiding the mess where I am having double glazing installed and my flat roof redone. I was greeteed by the evidence of much having been done when I returned from work yesterday. This was my roof...
Unfortunately, although we'd planned only to replace the roofing felt, the wood below was found to be rotten, so that got replaced too. So, everything is still yet to be finished and the builder is coming back tomorrow, so meanwhile there is not point cleaning the mess, so i'm living in it!

On an un-related topic I saw this quiz somewhere else this lunchtime, and liked it a lot.
Take the Quiz here!
I spent a lot of time watching the Jane Austen film on tv last night, and the how it was made type programme earlier in the day yesterday. I'm wishing i had a good excuse to visit Bath again!
