Done!





We had a great day knitting. But what a comedy of errors mine turned out to be. I really need to knit more often. Everytime I come back to it I have to relearn everything. I started off trying to crochet it by accident as I just got the two things mixed up in my mind. Hence the beginning resembles a loose doily. After the first 10 rows I realised that I kept forgetting to alternate each row so it was coming out in ribs. Then I cunningly decided to keep with the rib so it looked like I had done it on purpose, at which point I totally got the rib wrong and changed lanes. I am so awful at this pattern remembering stuff. I can't remember one stitch from the next! I also ended up with a few random holes in the middle. I almost didn't want to use my shiny blue button by the end but then I stopped being so hard on my poor scarf. I just promised myself I would start number 2 tomorrow and improve.

You made a mistake?? It looks great! My 'knitting' (if you can call it that) looks like it has been attacked by a passing dog. Awful. Really awful. I can't believe how quickly you've got the hang of knitting. Well done! Anyway, what I really wanted to say was that I am loving your constantly changing banner AND your little subtitles always make me laugh.

Thanks Pippa! It's taken blood and sweat to get this far, and alot of help from people who inevitably end up doing it for me!
