Let's get this over with quickly shall we? Saturday Pudding - creme caramel with strawberries and oranges. Right, there's that little formality over and done with isn't it?
Because here is the exciting news. The Sock. Not just any sock, oh no, The Posh Poppy Sock.
I know there isn't much progress for 2 days knitting, but please bear in mind that you cast on 145 stitches, then decrease straight away, then that bobble row - oh that bobble row - took over 2 hours to knit. It would not have taken quite so long if I had knitted instead of purled half of the time and if the light had been better. But would you just look at it? I am in love with my new sock. This pattern is free people - come on, someone else join me on this quest will you? It is brilliant, I am loving it so much, but it is a bit lonely all by myself.
Come on Sussex Yorkie, put the spinning wheel down for a few days (OK, weeks!) - you really do need a pair of these socks! Locket? Mrs Moog? Trashy? Dee? Kitty? WMK? Anyone? Please?
But as it is March 1st (Happy St David's Day) and officially I can knit the next lot of Mystery Blanket squares, I must curb my enthusiasm for socks and play at squares instead. Somewhat begrudgingly so, it has to be said.
And why do my family need feeding? Why do they need clean clothes? Why do they need ironed clothes and a clean bathroom? Why does the hoovering need doing and the dishes need washing. Why must I go to work tomorrow? Why must I waste 7 hours valuable knittng time fast asleep in my bed? All these distractions are not good for the knitting.
And on the subject of distractions, have you been over here yet? Jelly Belly, Jelly Brain is having a give away of a very beautiful watch. If you win, you even get to choose what colour your watch will be (providing it's not gold, Mrs JB has run out of gold watches!)
