Coming along nicely! The yarn is really super soft & the pattern is, as it says on the tin, soothing to knit. Nearly finished the first sock - will take a picture when they are finished as the lace pattern looks better stretched.
We had our first 'Sunday Roast' since the 15th January when the Rayburn went on the blink! Its still not 100% fixed -needs a part, but as long as you catch it tripping off, its usable. The washer packed up yesterday & I had to go to the launderette. Put these words in the correct order ... pours, rain, it, never, but, it ......!!!!!! and a few expletives!!!!!! Son & heir had never visited such a place in his 17 years (good Uni training I suppose!) but helped out -mainly running backwards & forwards to the nearby petrol station for MORE change. Its certainly not a cheap 'do'! Hopefully the engineer can be summoned tomorrow. At least its under warranty!
On a broader 'blogging front' - my 'teaching blogs' are going great guns & earning mentions in the tightly knit virtual circle of geography teachers that lurk on the net. Two of my sixth form students have set up blogs for students/teachers in their other subjects too. All started by me beginning to lurk in and out of knitting blogs last summer...... makes you think! The power of the knitting/ crafting world......!!!!
