So I finally did it.... this week.


As I mentioned before, This week I joined Facebook and Twitter. You may have noticed a bit of new widgetry about the blog and website (or not).

I can see why I avoided all this social media hoo-har for so long.... what day is it and how much time have I spent in front of the screen????

It's been lovely to reconnect with old friends through my personal Facebook account and at last I've created a Facebook page for the business to broadcast updates from the land of Nicole Mallalieu Design (to the non-blog-readers of the world).

And my goodness, this week I even updated to the "new" Blogger editor (it's not exactly new anymore, is it?)



Another thing I did was crack the Boteh Scarf code. 

This thing has been worked and reworked and I finally have the idea of how to do it.  (Lara - cancel that lesson, we'll just have a cuppa instead!). This yarn doesn't photograph well, but it's a rather lovely denim-coloured cotton yarn called "Amalfi" - bought in the Lincraft yarn sale.

Le book has also reached a point where the designers and editors are working together to put the whole thing together.  Sample pages are being emailed between various parties.  It's looking like a real book is happening.

Cute skirt! I'm still just plodding in Facebook territory - it's hard to avoid it - I've got no idea about Twitter ....

very appropriate skirt choice :D
looks like a totally difficult scarf to be knitting, all i can do is straight-up knit one row purl one row ha ha.

Nikki - if you go to networkblogs.com you can get your blog to automatically post on your Facebook page; saves you thinking about it each time :)

Nikki said...

Shall be networking that blog as soon as poss!

Oh and the skirt.... is from a book that's due out mid 2011. It should be a great book - watch out for it!!!

I deleted my Twitter account the other day, I never used it and prefer Facebook instead. It is lovely to be able to keep up with friends and family all over the globe!

Your crochet is so impressive! I love denim coloured yarn, it's so inviting. :)

Love the skirt and glad the book is getting there. I think you are also doing really well in the knitting department. You seem to be doing all sorts of difficult projects without the blink of an eye!
