When the kids got home from school today there was a parcel in the letter box. My darling sister, affectionately known as Aunty Lee Lee, had sent Nick and Anna both a pair of socks, and then slipped in a little pair of knitted slippers. She is a good knitter, and I will have to get her to teach me how to make some myself. I can only knit rectangles like scarves, which kind of limits what I can make. I cannot follow a pattern, but I think this is due to laziness, and it takes so long to get anywhere, whereas with sewing I can see something coming together instantly. I'm all for instant gratification me!
