Added to the fact that the lousy weather has left us stormbound on our rock in the Atlantic this means that I might actually manage to get the hoody finished before we are due to leave said rock on Monday. However, this entire experience has taught me something very important. In future I will try and adapt the pattern to knit in the round and then the front and the back should hopefully be the same length!!!

I threaded a knitpicks cable through the stitches at the top of the ribbing and then another one through the stitches 4 rows up.

They are coming along really well I am hoping to have the increases finished by the time I watch Lost tonight so it's just basic stocking stitch as I can't do anything more complicated than that while watching Jack and Sawyer ;o)
The Mother's Day socks were well received and the spare is eagerly anticipated. I am glad she liked them and in the winter of Aviemore they will definately be nice and warm. The niece and nephew visited today and seemed rather impressed with Bob the chick. This cemented the intention to make them one each for Easter but I am thinking of working with some different colours or maybe making some patterned eggs. Not sure which yet. But at least now I know what knitting projects I will be taking away with me next week.
I also picked up the lastest copy of the Debbie Bliss magazine and it's lovely. I will review it at later date but I want to have second read of it first :o)
