Hello Forkers - February 2017 Edition

Posted: 11/02/2017 at 13:11

 Hello again - I'm back from the city with yarn and knitting pattern - I wore my calf length thick down padded coat, warm boots, scarf, gloves and OH's woolly Russian hat with ear flaps - not 'cool', but very warm.


Liri, there seems to be  a real dearth of patterns for plainish men's sweaters that don't look as if they were designed in the 1960s. Plenty with lots of cabling and collars etc, but DS wants a plainish one - I found one eventually but think there's an error in the pattern as the photograph shows an unturned collar with a cast-off edge, whereas the making up instructions direct you to turn the neckband to the inside and slipstitch it loosely in place ... oh well, we'll wait until we get that far and see what DS wants.


Have heard from Wonky that her two new jumpers arrived safely and are 'just perfect'.


Now to put the kettle on - I shall join you all on the sofa - very tempted to watch Quo Vadis - haven't seen that for a very long time - always love Peter Ustinov playing a baddie

Good morning all 


Grey and cold here - it seems very still out there. OH has set off on his bike, and I'm deciding what to do with my day - I need more knitting to do so I might go into the city, but it's Saturday so that might be a daft thing to do ... I shall ponder ...


Enjoy the hills Fairy

Whatever you do , my best advice is DONT mix autumn and summer fruiting raspberry canes - you'll never know how to prune them properly
