More Projects Started

I have started another couple of Christmas present projects. The navy is a hat and scarf set for my nephew in law but as I can only knit navy blue aran in the daylight I have started my niece's jacket. The pattern is from The Knitter magazine and is knitting up nicely so far but I have yet to tangle with the more complex cables that are on a chart as opposed to being written out.I am going to adapt it to long sleeves and not as shown on the photo.

Thanks Lynn for your web link for my cat aroma problem. I came down this morning and either I have got accustomed to the smell or it has faded away overnight. I did liberally spray everywhere yesterday and had a scented candle burning all evening so maybe that is something to do with it.Needless to say I didn't open my door last night to go out to the bin I left the rubbish bag sitting in the kitchen for disposal this morning instead so Oscar didn't get the chance to nip in last night for an anovernight kip.

I have woken up this morning with a cough and a bit of a cold. Hardly surprising really when you consider that I was sitting at the Knit Club yesterday wearing trousers that were wet from the knee down and then I got soaked through again on the way home.

The flat screen to my PC has decided to go on the blink. I starts off all white then fades to pale grey and then black when I switch it on. It doesn't go any further than black until I turn it on and off a few times so it's definitely on it's way out. I still have my old large type screen upstairs with my old PC so I will have to try to get my son or someone to bring it downstairs and connect it for me until I can get a new flat screen for this PC. I have tried leaving the screen on standby and it still goes off. If I go into the other room and leave the PC running when I come back the screen is blank again and I have to start the on/off dance again. I am never very lucky with all things electrical. It's at times like this that I miss having a man about the house.

I must do some housework and then try to push on with the navy hat and scarf before the light fades to electric. Mummy Christmas's hands are getting a little weary from all of this knitting. I really miss my crochet.
