This little fichu is a very quick knit. I am already onto the final edging, with about a dozen points completed. There are 345 stitches and each point consumes 6 stitches so there must be 58 to do in all, so I have over ¾ of the edge remaining. I’d like to finish it today but I have a lot of work to attend to and it doesn’t seem likely. Maybe tomorrow – then I can block it over the weekend and will then have some expertise to share with SpinningGill when she comes to do hers.

I did the whole of the body on straight needles. I’ve left the body on the straight but brought a DPN into play for the edge. I think it might go quicker if I transferred the main stitches to a circ, but it scarcely seems worth bothering at this stage – even though it is making my hands hurt considerably.

This wee thing is really fun to knit.

Seems to me that making plans is a complete waste of time! Once again the weather gods have a different set of plans to our own but hey, ho, we are happy to go where the wind blows… or the tide drifts, or whatever. More like where the wind doesn’t blow, though. The weather gods… Continue reading Aft agley

Tonight’s view from the van is of olive groves and cloud. We have decided to spend only one night here and will move on to Olvera tomorrow. Dusty came for a walk with us this afternoon, there is a track that runs straight from the campsite into the National Park. Very nice and he walked well, until the rain started and he asked to go back into his carrier! #wp #spain #cats #Dusty
