As of 11:30pm yesterday I finished the scarf. I am now back on the mittens for Annabelle, as all hers have run away!!
It seems that gloves in this house are b as elusive as gold in a tin mine…..
Currently she is laying across my lap sleeping. Darren thinks she may have chicken pox, I think she may just be poorly. I haven’t seen anything that b would point to chicken pox.
As for the knitting, well it seems it allows me to concentrate better lately. So whilst I knit, I am listening to audio books, as I am finding it hard to concentrate on the written form at present. So currently nearing the conclusion of Wuthering Heights, after having reread it in b the written form six times since July… Then, I will need to read over there text book chapters once more before beginning to write the next two assignments.
As for the mittens, I hope to conclude these by the end of the day….
