I have kept up with my knitting while watching a little bit of River Cottage on DVD. I chose to start from the beginning and have watched all of Escape to River Cottage. I watched A Cook on the Wild Side during the Christmas holiday period. Unfortunately yesterday, there was a minor mishap in my knitting bag and one sock came off the set of four needles and it was too difficult to pick up the stitches so it is back to the beginning. Aargh.
I did a bit of sewing too. I had a couple of blocks to make for a swap on my yahoo quilting group. Two twelve inch blocks in bright colours were required so I chose an easy Nine Patch design and the brightest orange I could find in my fabric box. Sewing is great rainy day fun.
