Socks, Socks And More
I have finished the two pairs of 8ply socks that I was working on for the market, pressed, ready to be labeled and hopefully sold tomorrow, nothing wrong with being optimistic now is there. The sock in progress is the first of the three pairs ordered, this one is the same as the others, 8ply, nice quick knitting. The pattern is a simple seed stitch which doesn't require a lot of thought and can be taken anywhere.
Janelle had a haircut yesterday so as I sat waiting, I knitted and received lots of comments about my knitting, it cracks me up when I get 'oh isn't it great to see a young person knitting' wouldn't it be great if our craft could lose the 'only old people knit tag' I mean what other hobbies or crafts attract such a negative vibe? It must be how young people who play lawn bowls feel!!!
Look what I bought off ebay
Yippee, I have been bidding on this for ages and of course kept getting outbid, this happened again this week and when I received an email telling me that I had been outbid there was a link for another one available. It was a buy it now and would you believe that I paid less for it than what they have been selling for in the auctions?? Now I must be patient and hopefully the same will happen with Nigella Lawsons Feast.
