Because I really needed another hobby didn't I? Like I really have enough time to do everything I want to do and have many a spare hour waiting to be filled...
But seriously, I have acquired a new hobby. Knitting! Yes really. I blame Jenny, it's all her fault with her lovely knitted goodies that I've been admiring.... And then talking about it at work. So for my birthday one of the girls I work with bought me a "Learn to Knit with Barbie" kit! So much fun but the instructions made no sense what so ever. All I can say is thank goodness for You Tube!
And then, with perfect timing we are taking part in the Big Knit 2009 at work with Innocent Smoothies & Sainsburys. Basically, you knit little woollie hats and send them off to Innocent and they put them on their Smoothie Bottles and for every one sold Innocent & Sainsburys will donate 35p to Age Concern & Help The Aged this winter.
I've only just started, my first is a work in progress but it's coming along quickly and while it's not perfect it's not too bad!
