I started the hat, top-down, this Sunday. On Monday I took my knitting to my friend Ailsa. It is wonderful to have a knitting friend living so near. Dory and I did have a lovely time, she enjoyed playing with the cat and was allowed to use a punch. Ailsa makes gorgeous cards and some of you are going to receive one of them in December :).
Monday evening I cast he mittens on. Tip down. Tuesday we had to go to the infirmary for Dory's eye test, which she failed. Nothing to worry about yet, we have to come back in 3 months. Since we were in Northwich anyway, we went to the town to do some shopping. D. choose to have coffee at Bratts, because of the Fairy Lunchboxes. While she was eating her egg-mayo sandwiches in order to have the crisps, I did have time enough for some knitting (and a second cuppa coffee).
When we got home I found a RM card, saying they could not deliver a package. That could be my magic ball! And now I have to wait for the re-delivery at Saturday to know for sure. I'll keep you updated!
In the evening I finished the mittens, made a I-cord to join them and crocheted the edging of the hat. The yarn, 4PLY BBR 'Birthday Girl', was sent to me by Darcy.
Okay, enough blah-blah for today, here some pictures and a clip of the result!
