A decision has been made - I have lots of acrylic and don't enjoy knitting baby stuff.
There are lots of people who enjoy knitting baby stuff and have no acrylic......
So, it is off to be donated to those people who would like it, leaving me to be completely selfish and use the stuff I want to keep, like the handspun I have had sent, the Debbie Bliss that was gifted, and the Socks that Rock that I have yet to get my hands on :-)
Thanks for the suggestions everyone, hope you approve the decision ;-)

Now to work out what I want to knit, listing my yarny needs and buying some decent stuff that I can be proud when I get to Woolfest......
the question is - should I ditch the crap?????? Some of it is over 5 years old, has been knitted into various different things and is still sitting half frogged in the corner. I must have loved it once, but now - I suppose I feel guilty that I spent money and have effectively wasted it Ggggrrrr! (angry face!)

DH is working late again tonight. Apparently tonight could be so late that he may not come back, and it could entail working all weekend too. And it is work ;-) he is so bloody stressed when he is here, with a decidedly non-perky look about him. Roll on Woolfest, and a long weekend in the Lakes.
Can you tell I am knitting with the pattern on the laptop on (funnily enough) my lap.........so many little posts in so little time.
Have you ever had a penguin come to tea?
Take a look at me, a penguin you will see!
Penguins, attention! Penguins, begin!
Right arm, left arm, right leg, left leg!
Cheers, me dears. Mwah!

And yes, that is himself in the background. He got back about an hour ago, and helped himself to cheese on toast, as the kitchen is closed.
And yes, that yarn really is that green!!!!

Look at this cake that her Grandma made for her - Fifi and the Flowertots.
The only bits that you can't eat are Fifi and her friends - though Holly did give them a good chewing later as she is teething, and the tables and chairs which are balsa wood...oh, and the umbrella......
Isn't it amazing?!
It took her a week to make...
Isn't it amazing? Can you believe that someone has the patience and the talent to do this. Over the years Grandma has made various fabulous cakes, and I am ashamed to say that I was so overwhelmed with this one that I didn't take any photos of anything else at the party and that includes the beautiful Birthday Girl.
