Poppy Progress: 05/09 Little Miss Smartypants

So, I thought I could knit and puzzle at the same time. So I did. AndI was getting on famously until I spotted the dropped stitch. I need to tink. That probably won’t happen today. Maybe tomorrow.

Acknowledging the low light levels last might, I swapped to the back-up project. A Handsome Triangle. It is up to Row 50 now. I will start a series of posts for that soon.

Knitting time will be at a premium this week: cooking today, Craft club Monday, spinning Wednesday, trip to town, Ranger photo walk on Friday (Yay!) I’d like to reach the border by the weekend, but it is difficult to see how, especially now the need to tink has arisen. That’ll teach me.

2) I found myself inexplicably driven this morning to cast on another Clapotis -  after discussion on the shawl KAL board. Clapotis Mk3III I must be mad.

3) Still have headache

The rest of the day will be given over to the preparation, making of, and eating pakora.

Will try to do progress photos tomorrow.

It has been a busy day, not much time for anything. We walked the dog this morning but I took no photographs until I decided to take a few potshots in the village on our way back.
