Went to my daughter'sd to meet her new baby and took my knitting bag with stuff I had made for baby.  I thought I would come back with less stuff but ended up with the bag full of the yarn that my daughter bought to knit her son a scarf and a "Would you like to finish it?"

Finish it?  All she'd done was taken the paper band off the ball of wool.   ;D

My mother knits for my children (her grandchildren) and I knit for myself.... that's our unspoken agreement! And isn't that what grannies are best at.... (but I usually choose the wool, and then post it all the way to Germany!) Jumpers are then posted back.... now there's a few airmiles...

This grannie isn't best at knitting.  I remember knitting a sock for my second husband as he didn't believe I could turn a heel -  that was it - one sock.  Couldn't be faffed doing a second one! ;D
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Annie,
I would say that I am not a bad knitter but 4 weeks on and I am still working on the rib for the first sock.  I feel its going to be a long slog but I hope that I manage to get to the second sock.  Which year that will be time will tell  ;D ;D
