English weather for Queens weekend
Well Long weekend for some normal for me and how do you spend what could be classed as a freezing wet weekend? Knitting the miles of orders you need to do well in real truth I have been bogged on the bed socks in Khaki 8ply. It is a dread to knit the colour is getting boring as there are 80 rows of rib before I knit the foot. I am using the Patons bed sock pattern and the request was for the longer leg version. I have finally got on to the 2nd sock but am still wading through the rib of it after knitting fairly solid all day. Well I did have to have a nap as it is so cold grey and the best place was back there. So total accomplishement for the first weekend free in ages just 1 pair of bed socks. I guess it wanted to accomplish more and it didnt happen as the socks too far too much more time than I expected.
I have a quite a list still as I want to try and get more orders out of the way and get back to normal again. 3 of the ladies from work have all ordered the same scarf in bendigo wool in cyclamen which is a deep hot pink. The wool should arrive this week so I will take them to the Craft fair at Darling Harbour next weekend. I will try to restrain myself from making too many purchases so there is money back in the kitty to get a digital camera sooner that later. That is if I get my latest plan in the right action.
Well it is back to the bed socks as they must get done. It is a paying order so I must do so.
