Magic loop sock and Rav probs
Ta daa, the first sock I've ever done by magic loop:) Almost finished and Anne you were right it is easy to use 1 needle instead of 4.
I couldn't find any online instructions for doing the heel so I worked it out myself and so far it seems right. Very proud of this:)
Ravelry problems seem to be connected to Virgin for some reason. I did ring them last night and the girl I spoke to tried to get the site and just said it was down. However after hearing from Casey(code monkey) and various other folks in the UK it seems to be solely a virgin problem. Was able to get on earlier so we will see this evening when the problems seem to be.
A long day yesterday , we went to see Mr Mog's ancient parent and a meet up with friends who have just moved back here from France.
We had lunch with them at a place that used to be fabulous but of course we haven't been there for around 10 months. Guess what it has changed hands and is up for sale again. The food was terrible and the coffee worse. Shame as we had recommended it for our friends.
Don't you just hate it when things change for the worse?
But the journey through the lakes was great, views very clear and it did lift both our spirits.
