Sunday Surfing

Ah Sunday afternoon. It's sunny, humid and the mighty midget and I are knocking around in the house by ourselves winding each other up again. Oh what it is to have the energy and enthusiasm of a five year old. We've been working hard in the garden today, well, I've been working hard, he's mostly been being "helpful". He's now got a newly erected swing and I get to have a break. Yay!

I did this the other Sunday and I thought it'd actually be quite fun to record my travels if I did it again. I start here at this blog and pick a blog from my blogroll. From that blog, I pick another and so on. The only rule being, I have to leave a comment on any that I pass through. I found a few nice one's to return to the last time around and I'm sure if I kept on long enough, I could get back to where I started but as my blog readership is still relatively small, that could take an awfully long time. Anyhow, here we go.

First up is Vikki aka Wild Fire Fibres with her impressive haul from Woolfest. I wish I lived closer/had some spare cash/babysitter etc and I'd have been there too. I'll just have to save up for Ally Pally and IKnit this year. From there to the Feral Knitter (loved the name, just had to peak) and she's fermenting lichens to dye with. I'm definately going to have to go back and see how that one works out. Crooked knitter leads onto Gnomiejo Knits who posted this great link to some clear converse shoes - perfect for showing off your handmade socks! I think I might have to check out if I can get a pair of them over here. More Yarn Than Time has found a treasure trove of a LYS, it's a shame Austin is so far away. Why aren't there more yarn stores like this in the UK?

Ooops, that's another hour wasted. I really should get some dinner cooked before the mighty midget starts raiding the biscuit tin again.
