Get On With It

Carrying on with learning something every day - 5th September was a lesson about take aways. They either turn up or they don't and saturday was a day for our pizza to stay at the shop and a lesson learnt that we won't be using that particular outlet again.

Lesson for 6th September is that plodding on with really boring knitting means satisfaction at the end of it. Having got through the monotony of countless boring rows is an achievement for me because I generally just give up and it goes to the frog pond. This is another term for ripping out all the stitches.

This was my lesson for yesterday. I have been doing a pair of socks which has 2 pattern rows repeated for what seems like forever. The only part that made it slightly interesting was the striping of the yarn. However, I carried on with it and I now have a completed pair of socks.

I have done the first 4 layouts for the Learn Something New Every Day class. No front cover yet. I've used a Love Elsie house shaped album I had.

You could almost print your blog for the journalling! Loving reading of your lessons. Do you sell the socks?

Wow - fab socks. I love those colours.

Love the socks - and happy for you that you got through them!
