A second parcel from the wonderful Roo.
Pooch has been very good about helping me hobble about. The flat was tidyish above waist height but below that it was looking pretty messy. I just can't bend down to reach the floor. So this morning I sat on the edge of the bed and pointed at stuff and told him where it should go. Was suprisingly effective and so in 10 mins it was all looking tonnes better.
In another burst of startitus I began the fairisle cardi I promised Mum. I've got this far...
drops pattern. Using my DK the guage is about perfect and it will be so much easier to follow a pattern. Lazy, but easier. I've also started another pair of socks in a slip stitch pattern and a ripple cardi, although I'm having doubts about that too. I'm just so frustrated at my lack of movement that I'm getting impatient with other things as well. Mind you, in the last couple of weeks I've finished several pairs of socks, made a scarf, a ballaclava and a shawl and started and frogged several other things so I've certainly been getting enough knitting done. I suppose it is the one upside to so much enforced sitting about.
To finish on a positive...My secret pal has just received her final parcel so I'm about to send my 'reveal' email. She is An Odd Assortment - a crafty australian - and her blog is definitely worth a read. She's a brilliant photographer as well as baking and knitting and goodness knows what else. It's been a pleasure to spoil her!
