Finally the big computer is working again thanks to Jim mending it, so now I can work on my blog again.
Ive been doing something completely new and different over the last couple of weeks.
On a Tuesday Ive been going to one to one knitting lessons in how to knit socks.
I have always wanted to learn how to knit socks, so one lady very kindly offered to teach me one to one how to knit socks using two needles. I managed to complete one odd sock. I found that this sock fitted
Jim's foot better than mine as I have really narrow feet. So for Jim's Christmas box, he said he wouldn't mind a couple of pairs of knitted socks. So over the last couple of days Ive been collecting balls of wool when ever I get the chance to buy some.
I was really pleased when the Quilter's Guild sold balls of wool as well as quilting material so that saved me having a look round town which you can imagine is really really busy at the moment all to do with the Christmas magic and mayhem. I had to smile when I read on one blog that one likes to hibernate over the Christmas mayhem. Ive been hibernating in my little white room sat next to the window and the radiator to keep warm. Yesterday Bongo thought it would be such fun to chew my knitting needles. One bamboo needle I couldn't save but the other pair or 2.75 needles,,,, Bongo had chewed the wooden nozzles off the end. This morning I had a brainwave to glue some beads at the end of this pair and it worked. Its a good thing I bought oddments of beads and jewellery to cut up from the car boot sales last summer. So even though my Jim moaned and groaned about some rubbish I bring home, some of it, does come in handy.
Happy Stitching, Knittingx
