After several weeks of practicing how to knit rectangles, I've moved on - to squares. But wait, these squares actually have a purpose because I've got a project. Oh yes. I don't want to give too much away, but suffice it to say that the project may go exceedingly well and I will present it with pride, or I'll be running over to Mothercare to buy a 6 pack of infant sleepsuits and stuffing my project into a carrier bag behind the sofa. It could go either way, really.
I'm pleased to say that I've managed to get most of it done without having to call my mother-in-law once. Mind you, I am going to embark on another smaller project soon that requires weird things like increasing and moss stitches, whatever the hell that means. Maybe I should just make a scarf.
Of course you do realise that all of you are getting knitted socks with giant pom-poms on them for Christmas this year.
