I've been wanting to learn how to knit socks for a while now so last week at the knitting class I got some needles, pattern and wool and got started.....not as easy as it looks this 4 needle malarky!!
After a whole week of knitting I'd only managed about 3 inches and when I went to the class last night, Viv, out knitting lady, said not only had I dropped a stitch and got two holes in the sock but I'd been knitting the wrong way round and my sock was inside out!!
So I pulled it out and started again, taking my time and placing pins in the work so I know which is the right way to knit.
Pics to follow.
Margaret, one of the Ladies there has been knitting socks for years and she very kindly let me take a pic of hers to show you, Margaret has managed to knit nearly two pairs of socks in a week....what a clever bunny she is.
Such lovely heathery colours in this pair and the other pair are golden shades of Autumn, she knits all the nieces a pair for Christmas, I wouldn't mind being her niece!!
And talking of colours Mr Lucey has been busy painting the front door, before grey....
and after, "Brinjal"
a lovely rich mulberry colour " from Farrow and Ball. Love this colour and I've planted some pansies in the basket to match, when they show their pretty little faces.
As I type there's heavy rainy/sleet pouring down the windows and I can hear thunder....just as predicted by the weather man!!
