Christine! Who asked if knitting with Manos was worth looking into. Well, now you can make up your own mind! I've only recently started reading Christine's blog, but I think it's a new favourite already. For a start, I love her blog design: it makes me feel peaceful and contemplative the moment I see it. Secondly, she's been inspiring me to actually start sewing again: it's been a very long while since I made any clothes for myself. Well, apart from last September's Tudor Madness, anyway. And that's almost a year ago! Thirdly, and certainly not least, she's talking about knitting Rogue (again! - this will be her second!) sometime in the future. Rogue was one of the patterns that inspired me most when I picked up needles again, back in - when? 2005? Anyway, I put the idea to one side for a while, until I had more experience - and I never got around to starting it! Anyway, she suggested that we could knit it together (and I'm sorry - I never replied. I am a dreadful correspondent).. Which sounds like a lot of fun to me! Would anyone else be up for a mini-knit-along? Anyway, congratulations, Christine: send me your postal address, and I'll get your new yarn in the post ASAP!
