I finished my Mums cable waistcoat just in time to post it out to her on the Tuesday before her Thursday birthday. She received it on the Thursday and seemed very pleased with it:
I left it without buttons as I wanted her to choose them herself as there is a better selection in Inverness than in Stornoway!!
So I'm now working on my 'Amusing Recovery' sweater which is huge!!! Yes, I think I sized it wrong but I'm not that bothered actually. It's gonna make a fab winter round the house sweater and if future winters are going to be anything like the one we are currently experiencing then it's just what I need in my wardrobe.
I also still have the 'Spider Socks' on my needles but the pattern is too intricate to be used as a portable project so I'm going to have them as a house project after I've finished the sweater and cast on some vanilla socks for knitting group this week.
I'm currently listening to 'Wolf Hall' by Hillary Mantel on the iPod and it's fantastic!!! Despite being difficult to get in to I am now half way through and hooked on this version of the Henry VIII / Anne Boleyn story told from the point of view of Thomas Cromwell.
