And now for something completely different..............

Those of you who know me well
 will recognize that I have a strong preference for hand piecing.
I have been heard to say frequently that I am not an "Applique" girl
but that doesn't mean that I don't have a crack occasionally.
By the same token I am not a Knitting girl either; I find it awkward and slow.
However the mood took me the other day so out came the needles and wool and I made a start.
The Lad is going to the snow with his school later in the year so this offered the perfect excuse for some woolly bed socks and the chance to teach him how to knit.
(for some reason he's missed this experience, along with finger knitting and crotcheting)
The idea was to blog these gems step by step and give the instructions etc but this wasn't to be
Please enjoy my before and after shots

Apparently Bella likes wool - The knitting had been in the middle of the kitchen table before I left the house for a short time to get groceries.
