Yesterday I went over to see my sister and her family for the day. I took some wool, and my new knitting book and my sister showed me how to knit following a pattern, which is something I've never done before. Well to say I was pretty rubbish at it was an understatement - I was supposed to increase rows by 2 but increased by 4! I have no idea how and although my sister tried to explain this to me I was pretty impatient with the whole thing (like a stroppy kid). I won't give up on it just yet because I'd really like to knit one of the icons from the book I was given, but I think I need a bit more guidance.
My sis also gave me a hand knitted scarf that was a late birthday present, and another brooch:As you can see, she can knit, very well indeed. I have an afternoon tea meeting with work tomorrow at this place, so I'll wear my new scarf for the occasion, they won't just let any old riff raff into these places - I can't even wear jeans as I normally do to work.
I need to go off and show the vacuum cleaner to the house - and then I will do a bit of sewing - more bunny practice needed.
