The end of term

It’s been a good knitting week. 

On Wednesday Auntie Rhona gave me a crochet pattern, which she couldn’t figure out, to have a look at.  Definitely a case of the blind leading the much less blind than me here. And, oh my god it’s a miracle, I think I’ve figured it out.  It seems that they haven’t put the “*” or the “rep from * to last ? stitches” in the pattern, which kind of made it a pattern reading problem rather than a crochet problem.  Much more my area of expertise!!  So off to crow to Auntie Rhona on Wednesday after swimming – and hopefully get served up something really yummy for morning tea – and raid her garden for bits and pieces. 

On Saturday afternoon I started my first ever pair of toe up socks, using the Turkish cast on method.  Just as I was getting the hang of it, we had to go out and we didn’t get home until 11.30pm.  When we got home I thought I’d just have a nice cup of tea and another little go at it and got all the toe done.  When I looked at the clock it was 2.00am – a very long way past my bed time.

Sunday Steve went hunting with the boys so the kids and I had a nice quiet day, luckily.  A bit of gardening, a bit of tv and alot of knitting.  Elise is going really well with her knitting.  She did four or five rows of her scarf without dropping or increasing any stitches – not bad for a wildly impatient six year old.   

I have finished another design, a hat this time.  A thank you present for Al for doing such a great job on our new door.  Pattern to appear very soon…..

This is Steve being my model, he has a bigger head than Al
