Groundhog weekend

Last weekend I spent virtually all my knitting time sewing up Rowan Tulip. The plan was to wear it on Monday to school. The kids have been asking me about it all week. Today even one of the cleaners told me that she has been looking out for it but hasn't seen it yet.

The fact of the matter is that all the knitting and sewing have been done, but not satisfactorily. I feel that the best course of action would be to undo the sewing and start again. It is a hideous thought; I loathe sewing up, but considering the time I've invested in the knitting I think this will be the right course of action. It is irksome doing it all again this weekend, but it is worthwhile.

I have finished the stashbuster socks for my mum and I put them in the post for her today. She's not expecting them, so that should be a nice Saturday morning surprise for her. I was getting quite attached to these socks, but she is probably due a new pair and she is always pleased to receive knitted presents.

I had quite a complimentary conversation with the lady at the post office today.

Lady: "Are they (the socks) going to Australia again?"

Me: "No, these are for my mum."

Lady: "No bright tights today, then?"

Me: "No, it's a bit too warm."

Lady: "You're my daughter's teacher. I described what you were wearing and she told me who you are."

Me: "Wow, who is your daughter?"

She then proceeded to tell me who her daughter is, and low and behold I do teach her. Clearly I must have be very memorable on some day in the winter.

Good luck with the sewing up, and your Mum will surely love those lovely socks. I would say you are memorable in a good way, of course!

You are always distinctive! Guess what I just put my mobile in the washing machine...! ARGH! How will I get in touch with you for gossip?!?
I also may a problem which may require the loan of Granby... shock horror!
