Update of the Definition of Confident

Well we quickly established that knitting is like riding a bike & Rowan did remember how to do it. He also managed to add an extra stitch after just 3 rows, as you do. Smile

Teaching someone else to knit was a bit of a challenge, especially as the girl he was teaching was left handed, but they muddled on & survived the experience.

Eurovision Song Contest

Eurovision is VERY popular in our house. Rowan & I count down the months to Eurovision & sit glued to both semi-finals, & the final. We record it on Tevo & watch it over & over. I would have to say this year was not as good as last year, just not as many great songs, but we both absolutely loved the Irish entry Lipstick by Jedward. Just brilliant!!!!!

Hi Jan, thanks for your comments, but I have to say regarding your blog knitting is not that easy. I can make a scarf with a simple knit but I always end up with extra stitches and its not cos Iv'e added them on purpose. Thats why I leave the complicated stuff to my mum :-) xx

Hi Clare, I always added extra stitches, unintentionally, but luckily Mum was on hand to sort me out. I keep my knitting pretty simple too. My Mum is 81 & still knitting & crocheting. She's done some incredible stuff over the years including Aran & Fairisle jumpers. Lucky me was the recipient & 20 years on I'm still wearing them.
