Knitting in Vogue

I am so excited! I have finally managed to complete my collection of Knitting in Vogue books. I have had Knitting in Vogue 2 & 3 since they came out but I borrowed number one from the library, copied all the patterns I thought I'd do and never bought the book (a decision the copyright police side of my professional self deeply regrets and thinks it serves me right that I couldn't get the book). Now of course it is so easy to find a second hand book that you want in a bookshop on the other side of the world and I bought it when I found it. Yay! And of course now that I have it there are beautiful patterns that I want to do and add to my queue on Ravelry that I hadn't copied.

 I am maintaining my resolution to make gifts this year and have just completed two:  the fingerless mitts I made for Bridget for her 18th coming up next week, and the lacy scarf I made for Michelle for her birthday last week (no wonder my jumper is in hold!). It's a great way to feel virtuous (or it would be if I hadn't bought more yarn today because Spotlight had all the reduced yarn down to $2 a ball). I now have Mothers' Day and Teigan's birthday coming up in May so two more present opportunities and a cardigan for Eve to co-ordinate with the jeans I've already bought for her birthday. Plus I am giving a couple of balls from my stash to Paul for his buddy so an impact is being made!
