Day 2 of 31
Not a great knitting day so far, did complete the 150th hexipuff, so able to start a new one.
Actually started it in Squires Garden centre café as there for lunch with other ladies from the parish. This is the second one, couldn't make last month, but there is nought else socially for ladies at our church. The men have a monthly meet up in the local pub, it is my understanding it has been very successful in terms of friendship, fellowship and laughter.
Anyway, whilst we waited to see who else would be joining us, sat on squishy sofa and commenced another hexipuff, but just time to cast on 20 stitches, and transfer some to the magic loop needles. Suspect casting on was a little tight as it is proving tricky to do this.
All knitters will appreciate I'm taking stitches from red needle to wooden needles alternatively.
Was not able to continue after the meal, for although we sat around chatting, I was showing the others information from my iPad about the Local studies CALM website, found details of the woodwind orchestra in which the organiser of today's lunch plays. This is at the church at the other end of our urban village.
Now back to the socks. They were left in favour of ironing yesterday, so today will try again but can concentrate whilst watching British bake off?
