I opened a bottle of wine and got out the wool and knitting needles ,i had decided i was going to knit squares for a blanket for our bed.
So i casted on the stitches and left quite a long piece of wool for the sewing up of the blanket at the end ,poured myself a generous glass of wine and proceeded to knit.
Now i really don't drink that much alcohol I'm always the driver when we go out so the wine kinda went to my head a little bit.
And what had i done silly me id only gone and knitted the sewing up wool instead of the ball, so as I was quite tipsy i found it rather funny and proceeded to phone my daughter in Aberdeen and tell her all about it ,she knows i don't drink really so she did see the funny side ,you know what teenagers are like sometimes they don't see the funny side of their parents.
So after about fifteen minutes wittering on complete rubbish to her i found my partner had ripped it all out and cast all the stitches back on for me.
He is a great knitter would you believe ,he knits lovely Aran jumpers for himself i couldn't believe it when i met him and he told me he could knit.
I thought yeah yeah its probably rubbish knitting,but what a shock i got when i seen his knitting he is always correcting my mistakes in my knitting.
So at least with us both knitting squares the blanket will be finished sooner.
