Friday saw the first knitting group of the year at Darlington Stitches. It was lovely to see everyone again and find out what Santa had brought them! I took a few photos with my new camera, as you'll see in the photos,Bev was also playing with her camera!
It was a smaller group than usual, but that made it easier to talk to everyone.
The progress of Toms beanie has been slow, very slow. I thought such a small piece would knit up in no time, and it probably would have but I didn't take into account the need to have a small amount of concentration! On a scale of 0 - 10 my concentration is around the - 5 mark!!
Its a really straightforward cable pattern from S n B Nation that I'm doing in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino aran. I've had to make the hat bigger and longer cos my son has..well, a big head!! I know its in proportion with his 6 ft 8 inch body but the facts are compared to the average head, his is big!
Hopefully I'll be able to crack on with it and get it finished. I've got so much yarn in the queue and I also feel quilty about the downright neglect of my loom and spinning wheel!
Has anyone any ideas how to increase the number of hours in the day? If you do, pleeeease let me know!!
