I have rewarded myself for that (and a few other things) by buying a PS3 and the Ratchet and Clank Game & Star Wars Lego Game....both huge amounts of fun and a lot of laughs.
I'll admit it I am the gamer in my house and play more hours than my dh and dd together. I can't help it I actually really enjoy it.
This has put a little bit of a slowdown in my knitting but I do have the new Rockin' Sock Club colourway of Lucky to fondle - A lovely St Patrick's Day inspired colourway....it's so nice I want to lay it on the lawn and lie on it. It's that kind of colour..Makes you think of sunny summer days and fresh cut grass.

I love gift-wrapping something nicely.
This is Japanese paper from a local shop that sells it cheap..it is magic and soft and beautiful with the Purple Jute tied around it. It is qutie magic looking!
I can't wait to see my pal's reaction. I have included a couple of books I hope she likes to make up the budget.

We seem to have nearly everyone on track for delivery. Let's see how it all works out shall we.

Firstly Here is the back of the Ivy Cardigan from Knitty. It's a wrap around cardigan done in 8 ply. I (surprise surprise) am knitting it up in Bendigo Woollen Mills in a dark Purple Shade (Classic - Plum). It is done on very small needles...but is knitting up beautifully I really like the pattern and did I mention I like the colour
Madonna is done. She is so cute and the microphone works really really well. She was recieved greatfully and with much amusement. A perfect gift for a 40th birthday (when the recipient has everything).
Bag Swap is all done. I have assembled most of the goodies with just a handful to grab on Tuesday. I also have a second one to on post...but it is wrapped so I haven't seen inside it.
I am really happy with this and if you can get a close look you can see the buttons really finish it. Along with the ladybird matterial I have to line it.

I am waiting for Season 4 to be released on DVD. I know it is when it went downhill..but come on..its a great show. Yes 90210 is back was the headline.
On the knitting front Dark Ivy is underway a wrap around cardi for me.
I have completed the back, and started on one side of the front.
It's a free patern from Knitty it knits up beautifully.
