Yes shock horror I picked up two needles ( well circulars) not a hook and taught myself to knit again. Well I could already sort of knit, and was very good at the theory but pactise was sloppy and I was soooooo slow. I had this idea that if I re- taught myself to knit again on circulars I would be faster? So I grabbed my Patons Learn to Knit book by Sue Whiting, and a pair of circulars I had purchased at ATFOTF and some random yarn and 'learnt away'! I was like and ephithany I was so excited so popped onto Ravelry and found a lovely little lace cowl called Dayflower.
Still making bits for the craft market working on newborn blankets at the moment, just finished this one and hope to have another one made up for the event, they are quite time consuming because I do like to detail them with my sewing up technique an borders, 'can't beat a picot'!
Thought I would share the ongoing project that is my house, me and my husband both work full time so time itself is precious. This weekend was dedicated to 'decking' construction and you can guess how the first day went, Rain :( on Saturday hindered my hubby somewhat and also he has a hernia so I had to spend most of the day watching to make sure he didn't over do it.
This is the footings.
