Knitting and theatre

Is this the world's first knitting and theatre blog? Looking at the two things that take up 90% of any spare time I have.

Been a long time

Well, clearly the theatre and the knitting haven't left much time for blogging! I've been very taken up with rehearsals for the Real lady macbeth, not aided by being away for work purposes for a week, less than a week before the Brussels performances! But we did those and the show came together in time to feel that we gave people a good show. Now we're fine tuning before heading to Luxembourg next weekend for the festival. really looking forward to a self-indulgent weekend of theatre.

I did manage to get a bit of knitting in, though pulling a muscle in my thumb a few weeks ago put me out of action for quite a while. Since I last posted, I've finished the baby blanket for anna, as well as a little jacket for the baby. I've started one of my Kim Hargreaves boxes. One thing I would say is that it would be useful if the website gave you an idea of some of the stitches and techniques used in a particular pattern, so you could see if you were up to it. I'm finding it quite tricky. Still, gotta push yourself! I've started a little jacket in DB cashmerino astrakhan for my colleague Sian's baby, and this weekend I started my Rowan exchange present. Got to get some serious knitting in on that, if I'm going to be finished in time. Still, found some fabulous wool for it. Hope my exchange will like it!
