Well, today being Tuesday, it's supposed to be Tipsy Tuesday. But I haven't picked poor old Tipsy up all week. I've been doing cakes, finishing mum's Ruffled Garden - or is it Garden Ruffle? - sock and horror of horrors, finishing off someone elses knitting.
This last one is proving a real labour of love. A friend started knitting a Guernsey for her grandson, she got stuck with the neck gussets and asked me to help. The 'help' has turned into a full scale finishing off. It's a hopeless pattern with very minimal instructions (to cut down on printing costs I presume) on how to do the blessed gussets, on neck and underarms. The wool is 'pure wool' but is so scratchy, I can't imagine the grandson will ever want to wear it. Which is a shame as it's been beautifully knitted by Granny. I'll take a picture when I've finished sewing it up.
But all is not doom and gloom. Some lovely new yarn has arrived today from Kerrie via Marianne. it's the all new 'Coast' and is wonderful - can't wait to start knitting with it, but for the moment, it will just be stroked a lot! Yet more sock yarn, and I'm not really a great sock knitter, but this just has to be my favourite yarn weight. The Stash Basket is over-flowing with the stuff.
Perhaps I'm getting ready for a de-stash. And on the subject of that, according to the post thingy on the side, this will be Post Number 97, yet on the Dashboard, it will be number 100. Who do I believe? Think I'll go with 97, gives me more time to organise a give-away!
