Getting the hang of it

Another blanket is done. However, this does not count as finishing a WIP – at least not as my WIP as it has never been on my list.

Inspired by the squares my mother had knitted for Natasja she kept on knitting rows and rows of squares and when we went to see my parents the other day, those rows were waiting for me. Oh happy day …

A (birthday present) hat for my niece is next (I cast it on last night), then a hat for my neighbour, then I want to knit my first pair of socks and finally some Christmas knitting. Times are busy and the three WIPs (two wraps and a crocheted blanket) that are still sitting here will have to wait until late December.

I would be lying if I said I am sorry about that …
