Oh *!@$!*%$!

I shall have to tink.

I may have wasted an entire day.

It was all going so well but… I fell at the last hurdle. At the end of the transition chart I should have 128 stitches each side.

On one side I have 123.

On the other? 124!

I swear I counted every row. I swear each row was corrct. So what the hell went wrong?!

EDIT: the answer is “not a lot”

It’s not a simple “+32” calculation, so the correct number is not 128. I should have 124, which I do – on one side. I’ll bet I just missed a yarnover on t’other side – which is easily fixed, if I can spot where.

Phew! no tinking after all! I am glad I checked the maths.

I think I’ll check the count as well. Who knows, maybe I miscounted and there really are 124 stitches on each side…

Bare Naked

We are home again, after a month-long trip away. A trip during which I completely failed to get my laptop out. It was good to come home. We were driving along, close to Le Dorat at the time, when I felt that “aren’t we fortunate to live in such a lovely part of France” feeling washing over me. I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

A Month in France: Nothing is Lost

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

Ah, the windy highway. The last time we came down here our awning blew open… Thankfully it’s not even close to being that windy today. Phew. Not so good now that the tolls have been removed and there are HGVs to contend with. A bit macho, your Spanish lorry driver.. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

Rather a different day today but still warm, with 24 degrees expected by the time that we reach Ribamar. Those Happy Hour beers will be tempting. Shopped this morning before leaving, to find the Christmas Turron had arrived overnight. I confess; we spent an inordinate amount on Turron and chocolate. #livereportingfromtheroad #Spain #autumn2020

    I thought it would be odd to be out by that many stitches!
