>Back on track

>I’d like to thank you all for all the lovely comments over the past few weeks. The Flooding has left us luckily untouched (apart from when I had to abandon the car) & our home is safe & dry. However many thousands of people weren’t so lucky and everywhere you go piles of ruined carpets & laminate flooring are evident piled up on driveways or the grass outside homes. My SIL & her family were flooded out as were LOADS of friends & every day we hear of someone else we know who is now living in a hotel, caravan or with staying with family indefinitely. It’s been estimated that it’ll take up to two years for the area to recover which is a really frightening thought.

A bit closer to home my tooth ache is finally subsiding as I’m responding to the medication but I’ve still got a bit of a niggle. So am going back to the Dentist tomorrow & am hoping that I’ll be given a repeat prescription. For those that don’t know I had a bad experience years ago whilst at the Dentist so am a total wimp when it comes to anything involving my teeth.

But this is meant to be a KNITTING blog I hear you moan. Fair enough, personal stuff over, this is what I’ve been working on recently:

My So Called Scarf

My So Called Scarf in a brown chunky yarn that I bought at Coldspring Mill earlier in the year. I still love the yarn but I’m limited where I can work on this as the friend that I’m now giving it to is often at the pool as our DD’s train together. I’ve decided to make my Manchester friend a pair of Fuzzy Feet as I love mine so much in the same brown yarn.

So my poolside knitting (yes DD is training again after the pot was removed last week) & general anywhere KIP project is still that same pair of socks for my big footed DH:

Small Tiles socks
Small Tiles from More Sensational Knitted Socks

They seem to be taking forever but I blame that on the 2mm needles & knitting two at the same time so any progress is slow. I wasn’t sure about the pattern at first but it’s growing on me; you can see it better here. He loves the colours & they’re helping to keep my interest but are a bit orangey for me.

I’ve decided to have a real push to finish or frog existing WIP’s as I have too many things on the go and I’m hoping to show some FO’s here in the not too distant future.
