I have clever children – they both got Bronze medals for their Kumon – Michael for Maths, Jackie for English.
I have finished things:
Pink hat for Jackie – my standard patternless hat using the wool left over from her pink frilly socks.
Horcrux socks (from Six Sox Knitalong) for Michael – wool is one of the Opal hand dyes. It looked like the inside of a nappy on the skein but I think it knit up quite nicely. Michael has been told that, the next time he thinks I love his sister more than him, he must remember that I cast on 80 stitches for these socks. There are 40 rows in the heel flap, 98 rows in the foot, and 22 rows in the toe.
I started something – Margaret Tudor from Tudor Roses. This is the centre front panel.
I’m off to borrow a bed for blocking on Sunday (weather permitting) so there may be more pics then.
