  you can't always get what you want
Well, the MIL scarf MARKII is done. It is a simple basketweave 6X6 pattern and I think it is quite effective. I think MIL was wanting some more lacy stuff, but hey - I don;t just knit you know. She got the colour she wanted and I think it is nice. It is maybe slightly masculine and I promise there will be photos tomorrow, but my rechargable batteries seem to be unrechargable any more. What can one do?

In other news, of course I had a visitor tonight. Honestly. One day I will have time to finish a Uni assignment and knit. But at the moment, I can only knit!
My mum has just knitted herself a basket weave cardigan, so I think the scarf will be fine!!! It is like a law of Nature : the law that if you have things to do there will be a visitor, and if you are at a loose end (as if!!) no-one ever calls!!!
I like the idea of no visitors to get knitting done but there is always the problem of kids and men wanting feeding as well.

Such is life.

My knitting of Adams secret socks (that I can only do when he isnt home..And cooling weather and not much tourism work makes it hard to get knitting time of it done) was hindered the other day when I had visitors while Adam was out. Plans are to get them finished tonight though. Visitors always come at the worst times!

Looking forward to seeing the piccies of your knitting.

There is aways something waiting to put awry the best laid plans of knitters, if it's not visitors, it's visiting others yourself.

I've got almost no knitting done this week because of it.
Don't you just wish you could lock the door and pull the blinds down he he:)
