My slow stitching this week has been a little work on another apron. Once again, I’m using a design from Stitcher’s Revolution “Cute Kitchen Sayings”. This one is Be Grateful.
I’ve also been working on another pair of socks. These were the very first pair I ever knitted, but I’ve found them much too short, the pattern has them finishing just a couple of inches above the ankle. I wasn't happy wearing them, so decided to unravel the rib down from the top and lengthen them. That was easier said than done, I’m not sure if it was because I was trying to undo it this way, or because of the ribbing, but it took me ages. Of course, there was none of the original wool left, so I cast on some similar blue yarn and started knitting. The socks even came to the hospital with me when Robin had an appointment. I was surprised when several ladies commented on my knitting as they walked past while I was in the waiting room. Guess there is always some interest in handwork.

Finally, the socks were lengthened to my satisfaction, and I sat and sewed up the side seams today.

There, all done. I’m so pleased that I was able to alter these socks, and be able to keep wearing them, instead of chucking them out in the bin.
Waste not, want not
