Why Does Everybody Call me Big Head?
I am still smarting over my blanket disaster. I can't face undoing it to re-knit, the mistake is about halfway, so I would have such a lot of it to knit again. Thank you so much for all your suggestions, and I do think covering the mistake area with flowers would have been a great idea, but the baby was born at the weekend, and he is a boy. I thought about applique, maybe a boat or something, but the border of the blanket is a delicate mint green and I don't think I could match the colour. A better sewer than me could probably embroider something, but I know my limitations. So I am giving up on it, and I will buy a present at the weekend.
I made this scarf for my Mum for Mothering Sunday, but I couldn't post the picture until I had given it to her as she reads the blog. I made two of these, as Curly Girl fell in love with the first one I was knitting for Mum, so I gave it to her, and then bought exactly the same yarn again and made another. It's a quick knit, they take me about two hours and I am not a fast knitter. I have finally got around to putting details of my projects on Ravelry, you can find the scarf here. Mum loved it.
I am reading The Good Father, which I am enjoying so far. The wurm hat is going well, but seems to be HUGE. However, it fits my head.
