The ribbed hat is progressing … very slowly!

The ribbed hart is progressing very very slowly.

I am finding knitting with 6 needles very time consuming and fiddly. I keep dropping stitches … possibly also because most of the time I knit on the train and if there are sudden movements then I drop them … but also because I am not comfortable. The needles I am using are very short, probably only 7 or 8 inches long and I am finding it very difficult to hold them in my hand all the time. My normal knitting style is to use long needles and to hold the needles under my arms!

I am still determined to make more hats, but next time I will definitely get a circular needle in the correct size and use it as much as possible before switching to DPNs.

The weather outside is still pretty much grotty, the bike is sitting in the garage, waiting for some sunshine and warmer weather. Mainly because I do not want to take her out whilst the roads are being gritted (even though with the councils running out of salt they are probably not gritting much!).

On the negative side, as soon as the weather changes, I will be commuting by bike again, thus I will not have my daily knitting allowance time whilst on the train!
