free copy June Simply knitting and waiting,waiting
Have a spare copy of the latest(June) Simply knitting mag if anyone wants it. Sadly no circular needle as they didn't bother sending me one with my subscription copy which finally arrived. Well 2 copies actually neither with a free gift. Did I mention I was seriously p***ed off with both British magazines? Simply knitting and Knitting. Why I bothered to subscribe I don't know as neither sent my copies without my constant ringing them and fobbed me off with its in the mail. Why can't we organise ourself like the US magazines instead of acting as though they are doing you a favour by letting you subscribe. Once I get my needles I'm out of there. No more subscribing. If I see one I want I'll get it from the shop. Far easier. Also is it just me or is the standard of stuff in the magazines inferior to the US ones? I've found one thing past few months I may make and surprise surprise its a throw:))
I'm ranting I know, sorry for that I think part of it is the wait for the phone call. The guy is supposed to be leaving the house today and soon as he has we can go view it. Trouble is when will that be? Patience is not one of my virtues. I'm busy on the purples throw in feather and fan and liking the look of it. But there again another rant(VBG) are circulars meant to be awkward? This Daisy 10mm is so slow. I keep having to stop to push the stitches nearer to the knitting point. I know I knit tighter but on straights the stitches do at least move. I'm seriously thinking of transferring back to straights and putting up with the lack of space on the needle.
I'll leave you for the moment with a picture of the tulips in the grove this morning. I will however update as soon as I know anything. And if you want this Simply knitting magazine email me at amberdotmoggieatvirgindotnet. Willing to mail over seas.
