It's a Hoot and a little bit of Leg!!

Good Evening to you All,  Well we have had horrible hailstone showers this afternoon and it's become quite cold.  I really think we are skipping Spring this year.  As some of you who have been following my blog for a wee while know Alistair and I  are off to Iceland, (the country) in early June, I bet it will be warmer there than here. 
Anyway I hope you are all well, and a big Hug to those who are struggling at the moment, that includes me as I'm one of those struggling.  It's like two steps forward and one step back just now.  Due back to see the doctor next week, so will see how that goes, but at this moment in time I don't feel ready to be facing my work.

I've been noticing new followers ove the lst couple of days, so welcome aboard, it's great to have you here and I hope you continue to visit.  Thanks to all who left comments on my last post and I have to smile whilst reading them about the comments on the comment I made about my paper flowers being pants.  This is a term used by my son to refer to anything thats a disaster and I'm afraid I've cottoned on to it.

I've got a couple of projects to show today, here is the first;
My latest socks modelled by "The Lovely Alistair", he thinks I should show more of his legs as they're so lovely, however it's the socks that's the project I tell him not his lovely legs.
These I have to say are not toe up, just regular knitting, and they are for one of Alistair's friends.  I love these randomly dyed yarns, cos this is the only way I'll get near to knitting anything resembling Fairisle.
And now;
A card I was asked to make, and I've used a Papermania Urban Stamp, and coloured with Promarkers, paper is Kanban from the Mechanic paper pad, Core'dinations embossed with Tim Holtz, wood folder. Sentiments done on computer, Sizzix foliage die, buttons, twine and card candy from my magic box.

That is all from me today, hope everyone has a good weekend.
See you soon, Kate x

Good evening Kate, Love the "Legs"........LOL
The socks are great as well. I have done a few pairs using that yarn the only thing that gets me is they never actually match. I know is the nature of the yearn but you know me everything has to match. They make great Wellie Socks.
Love your card that owl is so sweet.
Have a Great Weekend

Thanks for showing us a bit of leg Alistair, Yes Kate your socks are lovely, just what is required for this cold weather, love the colours. That owl is lovely you would think he his following your around, love his eyes. Hope your Docs appointment goes well you do not want to return to work until you are ready, it will just set you back if you return too early.

Lovely items to show today. Especially Alistair's legs (woot woo)
Hope the doctors goes well for you. Doesn't sound like you are well enough to return yet. You will be soon though, don't worry.
The weather has been bonkers today. At one point we had blue sky and sunshine out of one window and heavy rain and dark sky out of the other, at the same time!

Good morning Kate, love the owl card how cute is he? Your socks are fab, you are going to have fun if you find a wool shop when you are in Iceland, just like being in a craft shop. Alistair watch out you will doing a lot of hanging around while Kate chooses which colour to have!!!
