however, no matter what i seemed to do my stocking stitch kept coming out as garter stitch! In the end i frogged it and cast on again . So Trashy kindly invited me to lunch to see what i was doing wrong! As soon as i saw her knitting her sock i knew straightaway - i was knitting inside out!!!! how stupid can you get!!! Well as you can imagine Trashy nearly fell off her chair with laughter! I don' t think she is ever going to let me forget it either! Lunch was lovely and a real treat and Trashy's lovely neighbour came over too. So i am going to start my sock again and see what else i can come up with!
Things are looking up on the crochet front although going by the above goodness knows what i'll do next!
This is part of a design to make a blanket - there are two more 'rounds' as it were to go - if i make about 30 of them it should be a good enough size!
I had a lovely parcel waiting for me when i got home yesterday - it was from Clara (WMK)we have been doing a swap - i have sent her 'The Knitter' magazine and in return she sent me these lovely goodies - some beautiful flannel fabric which i can't wait to get working on and a great flannel quilt book with some gorgeous quilts in it! Thank you sooo very much Clara its all fantastic!
So this week, so far, has been lots of play and no work - i don't know that i've achieved much but i've had fun actually having the time to sort out yarns and fabric, look at my various books for ideas and spend lots of time with the horses - not having to clock watch, even for a few days, is just so nice, so i feel very lucky!
I do think i had better go and think about dinner now!
I can still hear you Trashy!!!
