Muddling along

Here's the sock I've been working on. I'm very pleased with myself that I've managed to do the heel - not quite like the pattern said as my stitches didn't line up like it said they should. Needle 1 was needle 3 and I got very confused, so just muddled my way through. Story of my life really. Confused and just muddling my way along.
My day off for relaxing didn't turn out as planned at all. Husband had the day off (as in working from 6 pm, not the whole day). I wanted to go house hunting for my parents and just bimble round villages seeing if they would be mum and dad's taste. Husband does not do bimbling. He likes things just so, organised, planned, time scales etc. I am far too scatty for that. We went out for a couple of hours in the morning, then came back for dinner. I spent the afternoon making sugar roses for a birthday cake. Not what I had planned at all, but never mind, at least I can knit tonight instead!
On the subject of knitting, dare I tell you that I have something else on the needles? Mum has made a lovely shawl with Kerrie's sock weight cashmere and I'm putting the border on it. So I haven't really cast something new on have I? I'm finishing something for once instead. I have never blocked anything, normally just plonk the steam iron on my knitting, but I feel this will need blocking. Come back another day and I promise to have a picture of it. Finished. Cast off. Completed. Done. The end. Prepare to be amazed....
