Evenstar 2:1

The second instalment of Evenstar was released at 6pm last night. There is one chart of 34 rounds, worked over 280 stitches – so there are 4 setup rows, with the stitches first being doubled to 288, then reduced to 280. I executed the setup rows, then set the work aside until today. Am currently on the 15th round of the chart.

Clearly there is no necessary rush to complete the chart, with the next instalment being two weeks away. I plan to give it a rest now and have an early night. I think that I would like to finish this chart tomorrow, though. I don’t need to spin it out – there is plenty else for me to be doing. I’m not one for bitting and bobbing, despite appearances to the contrary! So, I’ll prioritise the completion of this chart and then either return to Jessie Lambdin, or resurrect the white project (I believe that charts will be out by tomorrow.)

Whatever I choose to do, it needs to be non-taxing as I am feeling well under par at present. Fortunately, the Evenstar chart is remarkably non-taxing! It has been an easy trot through the last 14 rounds, with minimum tinking – and that only due to husband-static 😉

That is not to say that progress has been trouble-free. There have been struggles with the needles. I do now finally appear to have those sorted, by dint of experimentation with right and left hands and changes of cables.

There will be photos soon, perhaps tomorrow but more likely on Monday.

Now, the big question is: halfway through the chart – lifeline? or leave it until the end?

Week five of lockdown v2.0 begins today. We have new rules, slightly more relaxed but with the addition of a nightly curfew (from 15th December.) Does that then make this Lockdown v2.1? I think that it probably does! … Continue readingDeterminedly Cheering Myself Up

Feeling a bit seedy

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM

    I’m probably too late to say this – but lifeline definitely! 🙂

      Well, I would, if I thought that I could summon enough energy. It feels like just too much effort right now. I think I am in a decline 🙂

      Are you home now?
