a knitted bit

Back in May, at Quilts UK in Malvern, I bought some slipper soles to which I was supposed to add a knitted sock to make them into slipper socks thingummys whatsits.   But I didn't do it because the pattern was very confusing.

But now I've done one as a sample for the TV.  I don't think I'm particularly spilling any secrets as there has already been a show on, featuring the soles, but there was only one sample made up.   I am of the impression there will be more samples on the next show, which I believe is due the 2nd week of November.

And here's what I came up

Showed it to son no 1 and his girlfriend and they were both well impressed.  So I might have to make her something similar for Christmas (speaking of which it's 2 months today as today is still 25 October at the time of writing), however I am still teasing them with the idea of matching knitted jumpers.

Later folks

Some stuff about the stuff in the blog


Very new at this blogging lark, so forgive me if I get a bit befuddled. User name is derived from my maiden name of George and the fact that by the time the Olympics are held in the UK in 2012, I will look as if I could compete. And not as a sumo wrestler.

For starters there is only one blog with contain my thoughts, but this might evolve into 3 or 4 when I work out what I'm doing.

In the main it will cover my slimming journey, my quilting exploits, my get fit and stay fit campaign, and my photography. Not forgetting my recent TrollBead obsession.

Should I ever get a lovelife you might get glimpses of that as well.
