While the holiday continues so does the knitting practice. Despite 3 attempts at the ribbing it still wasn't quite right but I decided to accept it as a beginners flaw and keep going. So now I'm in the body of the work and it feels like its starting to flow more smoothly. The size is looking a little on the large size though and I have a funny loop at one end I can't work out. But with more days break ahead of me I'll be able to get in more practice and maybe some wine. Hmmm definately wine.
