Bad Wife: I’m not knitting socks

Posted in Uncategorized

I knew it, what a failure. I promised my husband that I’d knit him a pair of socks. I’m just over half way through and I’ve made a start on something new…couldn’t help myself

 

When I went to Devon earlier in the year I picked up this rather lovely looking yarn. The colour is just fab. I had planned on knitting a pair of socks with it but to be honest it seems a shame to hide this yarn.

Ball winding on the train

I went on a (longer than expected) train journey last weekend and used the time to wind by hand the skein into a ball. In actual truth I pulled out the skein and planned to start knitting. I had completely forgotten that I had to wind it into a ball first. I really am suffering with absent mindedness at the moment!. Half an hour later I started knitting…

I am not really a shawl person, a chunky scarf, yes, but not really a shawl. I’m not sure why, they just seem a bit faffy and maybe too dainty and ladylike (?). Anyway, I’m knitting a shawl. Who knows why, but I am! I have chosen the Helvetica shawl in the hope that it will show off the yarn and not look too girly!

The socks will have to wait
