Long Weekend

I have been doing some knitting lately, but it has been for Christmas presents so no photos.... although I'll put this one in just to prove that I've not been idling and watching reality tv shows (actually I've avoided getting sucked into obsessively watching I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here this series, which is always a good thing).

The shades have been changed to protect the innocent.Had a couple of days off work last week and we went into Manchester on Thursday, had some lunch, did a bit of shopping, went to see the new James Bond film. I'm no film reviewer - so I'm not going to try - I'll just say that I liked it. It has vertigo inducing stunts, blatant product placements, torture, long & involved poker playing and no cheesy Roger Moore puns and crap.

Had the obligatory wander around Waterstones on Deansgate (their range is really improved lately, there are at least 3 shelves of knitting books now) and got a couple of books including Andean Folk Knits by Marcia Lewandowski, mostly because I fell in love with this fishy bag:

I tried to take a picture of the book for the blog but this happened

And then thisso I gave up.

Glad you enjoyed your time off and the film. Love that bag too! - Christmas knits eh? - Why do we do it to ourselves!

(blogger won't let me leave a comment as me, so I'm trying as an "other" !)

Reality TV is keeping me sane through my Christmas knitting, though IACGMOOH isn't a patch on previous years.

Maybe Waterstones are finally getting the idea that knitting is posular. My two local branches are rubbish. I'll have to go and investigate. Love that fishy bag!

The fishy bag is cool, I shall keep a look out for that book, it looks very interesting.

Cadbury is such a cutie!
