Of course it was Knit and natter at Debs shop this afternoon so I cast on another sock to take with me.A single one this time as I am using a ball of Regia Pairfect, in the excitingly named colourway 17122.
This is a centre pull ball and is designed to knit a perfectly matching pair of socks. There are sections of yellow waste yarn to indicate starting points for each sock. Time will tell.
The SO came with me today, he has put in a lot of hard work and had earned an afternoon off. He brought his knitting loom and spent a couple of hours working away, when he wasn't eating biscuits and drinking tea that is, not forgetting chatting to Debs and the other knitters. The biscuits were delicious, a selection of various chocolatey ones and some very buttery shortbread.
Much chatting, Oodles of Knitting and heaps of laughing was the order of the day. The SO just sunk into the group and was chuckling along with the rest of us. There was lots of tales of our children,s antics and one of the group entertained us royally with the things one of her boys gets up to.
We have had a request to knit blankets for Angel Babies from hospitals in Wales and Scotland. We were unanimous in signing up for this and Deb,s suppliers have offered free yarn.
I will be stash diving after dinner to find something in a pale colour. These need to be a minimum of 25" square so I will be using the C2C crochet pattern for one.
Ben was pleased to see us back, had a quick fuss and then ran into the kitchen and stood in front of the fridge waiting for his dinner. We were back late as we went into Ammanford for a couple of things.
I didn't even look at any yarn.
We did have an ice cream from the wonderful chocolate shop in Llandeilo though.
Salad for dinner, without the impossible quiche.
I better start chopping as the evening is almost upon us and I still aim to have a little time in the garden.
