The hard slog of knitting!

I get so used to crochet whizzing along ┬áthat I forget how much slower going knitting is. I am plodding along with my Dad’s present but it is taking its time. It doesn’t help it’s a 1×1 shaker rib. The yarn goes backwards and forwards seemingly taking twice as long!

But I will get there. There has been some other exciting progress, the house was retired and our sewing room is nearly back to operational status, as well as being rather pretty.
