Error Code 145

Well, the Fountain Hat is nearing completion. I am well up the crown shaping. However…

… errors exist in this hat. Don’t ask me where. Don’t ask me if they are inevident, or if the whole thing is a dog’s breakfast – because I really cannot tell at this stage. All I know is that the stitch count was out. I tinked it back and got the count right, but then found that my pattern was shifted over by the end of the row.

The bottom section of the lace is fine – I know that, because I tinked it many times and was absolutely straightlaced about it all. I was going for perfection. It’s not so difficult on the bottom part of the pattern – it’s a large and clear motif. It’s the top part of the lace that I have screwed up on. By the time that it happened, I was really past caring. I couldn’t see how the pattern should lie or where it was wrong.

So, I told myself that it was random eyelets and nobody would notice a departure from the original plan. And I just kept on going.

Really, until it is blocked, it’s a mystery as to just how awful the mistake/s is/are.

Frankly? I don’t care. Not at the moment. Not really. It’s just a hat for keeping my hair in place in the teeth of the wind.

Just ask me again after it’s blocked and the awful truth is revealed 🙂

I’m glad SpinningGill isn’t here at my shoulder to act as my knitting conscience.

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

I am lagging on the Month in the Country prompts, and lagging badly at that. I have a list of prompts t be caught up on and I shall be working my way through them here, or at Scattered Thoughts depending on where the post most naturally sits. I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost

Nell and I had a lovely walk this morning. The weather has cooled considerably and there was a very pleasant breeze. We both made better time than of late. … Continue readingOh, deer

    I wouldn’t dare, having been presented with the gorgeous Spring cap (not the weather to wear it at the moment. I went out wrapped up in the cat’s paw scarf this afternoon!)
