WOYWW #189 - Knitty Nora!

I’ll come clean right at the offset this week and own up to the fact that my work table is set up for this photo, but at least it gave me the reason to clear all the toot that had accumulated over the last two weeks off of it.

Luckily or unluckily, depending on how you view it, I haven’t done any paper crafting for a couple of weeks because I came down with that nasty little winter sickness and tummy bug, so I didn’t need to use the table .It was just as well because I had a new integrated fridge freezer put in yesterday and had to move a lot of stuff from the kitchen to give them room to work in and empty the old one…….. and where did that end up……you’ve guessed it….in my craft room!

I’m feeling much better now though, so this morning I decided it was time to get straight again and decided that I would show you how my knitting is coming along.

So here’s what’s on my Workdesk this week.


I’ve managed to finish two of the four pieces that make up the centre of the baby’s shawl and I’m working on the third part now.
At this rate of knitting it should be finished in a couple of weeks………I don’t knit fast and the old hands are not as supple as they used to be.


By the time we meet again next week I hope to have made some cards to show you because I still haven’t made my Thank You cards yet, but now the table is clear I’ve no excuse, so keep a look out.

If you want to see what on other peoples work surfaces, as I'm about to do after grabbing a cup of coffee, then call in on Julia over at The Stamping Ground and join in with What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Happy Crafting!

I'm sorry to hear you've been feeling poorly, Sue but glad you're on the mend again. This cold weather should kill off all the bugs shouldn't it!!
Oh wow, what a beautiful shawl. I admire anyone who can knit, it's double dutch to me. You have a real heirloom in the making there.
Happy WOYWW

Blimey, Sue..you must have been knitting like a whirling dervish to have achieved so much..because that looks like 4 ply or double knitting to me and I KNOW how long that takes to knit up!! IT looks wonderful, I'm sure the recipient will be thrilled skinny when she gets it!
Glad to hear you're feeling better now.

Beautiful work Sue! I love the open work in the shawl! I can remember being taught knit years ago by my nanny Lilly. Lilly married a British soldier stationed in the states and became my nanny for 3 years teaching me to knit and do all sorts of fun things. Thanks for popping by my desk and leaving a comment! It means a lot to me! Have a great week. Vickie #43

Oh! Sue the shawl is exquisite and you knit so well. I'm relieved after seeing your blog post title that Knitty Nora isn't who it is around these parts, my friend. I thought you'd been scratching your head and had to call for Knitty Nora THE BIDDY EXPLORER. Heh heh !!
so kind of you to offer help in another way for LillyBo quilts and it might be lovely to have some tags to go with them with the story of how it all came about printed on the back. We'll sort something out but I will be posting full info in a day or two so you can read all about it.
Thanks again love Jo x
ps are you going to the show in Manchester at Media City by the Trafford centre? I might get there as it takes the place of Aintree show.
