I have got this done so far:
It's going to have to wait now until the beginning of February as that is when dd should find out whether she is having a boy or girl. Because of the size of the needles I could not get a loose enough cast on. Had to get Angie to cast on for me, and knit the first row to start me off, which is crazy. I did attempt it twice and had to pull out so I was getting frustrated.
When I started knitting last year I said I wanted to learn how to knit a pair of socks. I bought this book recently:As I have never knit with multiple needles I decided to start with tube socks to get used to knitting with four needles.
I will admit to finding the whole thing very awkward, but on Thursday at knitting I will give it the good British try!
I read a couple of good books recently. Once Upon a Flock is about a woman who gets herself some chickens to fill a void and this tells of her adventures. It was a good book and I reviewed it here. We read The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett as our January book club choice, my review is here. My mam suggested I read "The Queen and I," by Sue Townsend, which I liked a lot better. You can read my review here.
