This Weekend at the Duckpond

We have mostly been...
Learning - how to knit. I've got it on my '32 before 32' list and never got round to making a start but what with being laid up for 8 weeks, I thought now would be as good a time as any. I've got a vague sort of idea to make coloured bands to go round my crutches so I've started off by doing some basic knitted squares. I'll take some more pictures when I'm a bit further along with it!
Learning to knit - very basic!
Watching - Andrew and his dad try and repair our old CRT TV which had decided it didn't want to switch on. For a moment we thought we might have had to {shock horror} actually spend some money on a new TV! After about 3 hours of fiddling though, they managed to get it to work again (Andrew's dad started his working life in the 1950s as a TV repairman so he wasn't going to let it beat him!)

Relaxing - while everyone else did all the work. Andrew's mum and dad came round both days; his dad helped with the garden outside and his mum cooked dinner each night, giving Andrew a break from doing it. I mean, I would help but you know...

What did you get up to at the weekend?


  1. That roast looks delicious! Glad to hear you're being taken care of so well :) Good luck with the knitting! xxx

  2. My dad was a TV repair man back in the day too, but gotta say it would be hard for me to give up our flat screen these days!

  3. Glad you're being looked after and making the absolute most of it!!
    Shall I send you a little bell??
    And maybe some fancy pants wool?

  4. Your knitting is looking great! Glad the men fixed the TV, it's always a pain having to spend money unexpectedly! Xx

  5. Your knitting looks super! It looks like you're being well looked after, hope your leg feels better soon x

  6. Mmmm roast! And the knitting looks great. I really want to learn to knit. I asked my mom a few years ago but she just wanted to do everything for me. She kept saying I'll "show" you but just kept doing it all! One day though, maybe soon even. :D

  7. You could hone your knitting skills on small and easy little hats for the Innocent Big Knit! There are loads of patterns here ( start with the Original Hat on the bottom row!
