Special Trip!

Well a nice day out at least - that's what I planned yesterday for myself, young man and my nephews. We were going to Trafalgar Square for some music and fun. Instead, apart from the pouring rain, I went for a 'special trip' and was rushed to St. Thomas' hospital with a suspected broken ankle. It isn't, I'm still wet, I have a spongy ball for an ankle and a few weeks of solid knitting - there's always a silver lining!!

For example - I've nearly finished the picot edged sweater by Lois Daykin. I can say hand on heart that I won't be repeating this project any time soon. It has not been enjoyable to knit at all. I hope to finish it tonight.

Back and front completed with picot edging.

First sleeve complete with picot edging. This was very awkward to do on a circular needle

I think St. Brigid may be coming out to play......

Oh no! I hope you get better soon. This is an IDEAL time to finish St Brigid, especially with our weather at the moment, it's not too hot to knit this type of thing.

Oh you poor thing. Mind you, maybe I envy you just the teeniest bit considering the amount of knitting time that you will have available ;) Big hugs. x

Get Well Soon.
I hope you are feeling a lot better now and are not in to much pain. Is young man waiting on you hand and foot? He better!
