This is probably the most frustrating thing I have knitted. Like Morecambe and Wise on the piano - all the right notes, just not necessarily in the right order. Please note the lovely giant pink cup which tames the ball of wool. Alison gave it to me for Christmas but at my time of life I don't really want to be drinking giant cups of liquid. It is perfect for stopping the wool dancing across the room picking up fluff and crumbs. (Housework gets slotted in when time allows). When the project is finished it will be a lovely (?) lacy shawl. Watch this space.
