>At last I have finished the fair isle yoke sweater – do you want to see it?
(I tried to embed it but the code wouldn’t work so I had to make a link instead)
I don’t know what my next project will be yet but I do know that I don’t need any more sweaters, I don’t want to make any blankets or cushion covers or hats or scarves. Some of the socks I knitted are looking a bit worn so I could knit some more of those. Any other suggestions? I could just concentrate on the cross stitch for a while I suppose.
A Few Thank You’s
jerine asked, “how does it feel to have a birthday so close to Christmas?” Well, it doesn’t bother me now but when I was younger I used to feel a bit cheated. You see I have an older sister whose birthday is in July and a younger brother whose birthday is in August – I’m the middle child with a birthday just before Christmas so something I often used to hear on my birthday was, “I haven’t got you much for your birthday but I’ve got you a nice Christmas present.” To me as a child that didn’t seem fair – the other two didn’t miss out so why did I have to? It wasn’t my fault that I was born in December was it?
deborah asked, “did you knit by hand before you started with the machine?” Well, I knew how to knit by hand but I was so slow that I never actually finished anything. That was the reason I bought a knitting machine in the first place. The machine I bought was the original Bond in about 1982. I’d knitted a sweater before I’d had it a week and that was it – I was hooked.
Talk to you later,
