As some of you know my dear Mr Hicks has not been blessed with the best health. We therefore know the staff at our totally excellent vets a lot better than most dog owners.
When we heard last week that one of the lovely nurses had given birth to a baby boy, I dropped all my knitting and whisked up a pair of booties.
It’s been a while since I knitted anything so small. Before I started I thought it would be satisfying to start and finish so fast – even if the ends seemed to take forever to sew in. But in the event, like eating a cream cake, the experience was over far too quickly. Although I was pleased with the end product, I couldn’t help feeling there was something missing. Proving, I guess, that for knitting at least, the journey for me is as important as the destination!
Are there any projects you’ve felt disappointed with because you’ve finished them too quickly?
