We are such stuff as dreams are made on...... (Tempest Act IV, Sc I)

Tempest: Knit in Yarn Yard Bonny, Colours Bushcraft and Mossy Logs, on US7 Boyes (Yep should have been 6's !!!! *rolls eyes*) 2nd Size. Knitted the hem on the way up instead of picking it up later, and if I made it again I wouldn't slip the stitches on the edges cos it makes for holey seaming and picking up for the bands. It still needs buttons but I knew if i didn't photograph it soon then it wouldn't get done!!

I absolutely love it, the colour is great, it's quick to knit, easy to keep track of as all the shaping is done at the beginning of a stripe, and the sock yarn knit on bigger needles gives a really lovely fabric. I don't normally make things twice - but I could make an exception here!

I'd like to say one more very special thanks to Terri who swapped the Mossy Logs and made it extra special colourwise!

So, I wonder if Lewis Hamilton was such stuff that dreams are made on this weekend. I wonder if somewhere a little boy watched that race and dreams of doing that when he grows up. Just as Hamilton did himself when he used to watch Senna......... It was a really great race, and did show Lewis for the talent he has, and good old Barichello getting 3rd - what a great result for him and Honda (I have a feeling Mr Brawn may do some good things with that team!!!)

I daresay the tennis produced some dreams too (maybe just of the game actually finishing!) but I'm not really into tennis so I'll leave that there!!

And the Tour de France has started too..... I can't begin to understand it, but whilst trying to avoid the tennis this weekend I did watch the first two days' highlights, compelling stuff!

So, it's Monday and work beckons. I've also decided to start trading again. It took a back seat when I had to take on some more part time work, but now that I have a good routine with that I feel I have some time to get back into trading. Plus the markets are doing a little more of what is expected now!!! I'm going back to trading the Dow Jones, which was always my preference. I'll spend a bit of time re-aquainting myself with the charts and getting back in the swing of it, and then we'll see what happens.

Have a good week everyone.
