Pretty things

Corsica is coming along pretty well. I have done the braid, ribbing and picking up for the top section and am now about to make a start on the sleeves. It's a really interesting pattern and lots of fun. I am pleased with the yarn and hoping that this is will be a knitted item that I will really get some wear out of. I have to admit that most of my larger knitted items don't really see much use. I wear my socks, hats and wristwarmers a lot, but the jumpers well, not so much. The massive cabled jumper I don't wear because it's massive and the cabled hoody is a bit itchy. Shame really.

Last week I received a lovely belated birthday pressie from Badger, with some pretty laceweight and a chocolate bunny! There were some chocolate buttons too, but they didn't hang around long enough to have their photo tooked...

How cute??!

Right, I am off to the pub for my tea. Hurrah! I am not being totally unhealthy though because we'll be walking up to the pub and back. I've been wearing my pedometer all day and so far have done 6987 steps. Woo!

I'm looking forward to seeing Corsica :)

Do you have a target number of steps - or is it just as much as you can?
