Done and Dusted.


I can't believe I have actually knitted something functional that hasn't fallen to pieces - yet. It's taken a couple of weeks but I finally finished it on Tuesday but saved the photo until today's HS:MS prompt which is soft. All 8ft of it is now wrapped up and labelled for Matt ready for Christmas Day. Kyle's is started and is progressing well as I do seem to have speeded up a little bit and can now actually manage to watch TV and knit at the same time - sort of.
We are off to the pictures and Frankie and Benny's tomorrow at Cheshire Oaks and I may even sneak into 1 or 2 shops. Not that I need to as I have finished Christmas already without stepping foot into a shop. I think I will be doing it on the Internet every year from now on as there is no stress involved and I can still wander round the shops to enjoy the Christmas crush atmosphere if I feel like it.

That's a super scarf. I have never completed any knitting I started so I am really impressed that you managed 8 feet!! F&B's seems to be a favourite with the hs:ms group doesn't it? Have a great time. x

I love scarfs - I once learned to knit just so I could have a Doctor Who one (if you remember Tom Baker)!
