MUCH ADO ABOUT NOT VERY MUCH..........
Good evening! Here we are again...Sunday evening and me feeling frazzled, because I haven't done all I need to do to keep my life at school in order. It's been like that all week..... piles of paperwork to complete, assessments to mark, reports to finalise, sports day to organize, forty job applications to read and score and so the list goes on. Oh, I also had to teach my class. Ha ha! Here I am finding the usual bloggy distraction; always much more fun!
So not much knitting done here, then! Well, I've added a few more squares to my Sock Yarn Blankie! I had another load of ends to sew in and also spent quite a while this afternoon, sorting all the little 'bits and bobs' of yarn out, that were tangly and knotty in their bag. Josiekitten and I swap small amounts of our yarn with each other; just about enough for a couple of squares.
I've finished one of 'Wild Hilda's Basic Ribbed Socks' .
These are for my eldest daughter. She's not too careful at sorting her washing, so the last pair were shrunk to smithereens! Hopefully, there will be letter luck this time, as I've used Regia yarn, which does wash and wear beautifully.
The sock grows soooooo quickly and the pattern is sooooo easy; perfect 'blot out' knitting. It's definitely not boring though, as the stripey colour changes hold the interest. I think it's these colour changes that help the sock to grow so fast. I am always knitting 'just a few more rows' to get to the next colour change :)
Well, the plan for the coming week, is to knit........................ What do you bet, something else will turn up!
Have a good week everyone.
