I am back at my table looking out at the sunshine and wind.
On my table today I have a pile of cook books which I am looking through to get inspiration for Small's 8th Birthday cake (couple of weeks).
My ever-increasing Granny Blanket.
My Mum's knitting needle bag with some patterns.
|wow - all those needles - and she says she gave loads away to charity becuase I didn't knit then!!|
My new project - a little baby bobble hat - for my friend who is due in February. She doesn't know what she is having so I thought I would make one blue pom-pom and one pink pom-pom and then sew it on when we know.
My coffee and cafetier and my Smash Book.
It appears whenever I knit, I don't fully follow the instructions. If there are a number of rows to knit, I start knitting and counting in my head. That's not that easy when you have two small boys, an ever ringing telephone, dinner to cook, washing to hang out etc etc. So I always find I've forgotton where I am. I count the number of rows but that doesn't work properly. Anyway the point I am trying to make is, whenever I knit something I always end up with one side longer than the other (this my family have started to call "Famfa's style") When I am old and famous, people will know my work because of the assyemetrical style.
I have done this again with this bobble hat but I think it will be okay because it buttons under the chin - Oh well I've got plenty of time to make another one if it looks ridiculous.
Sorry for waffling. I've taken up enough of your time. Off you pop to look at some desks here.
